Former President George W. Bush says the country’s immigration system is broken, because Congress has failed to act.
In an interview with Fox News, Bush also said the U.S. can “both be welcoming and insistent on border enforcement.”
Congress is again working to try to solve the problems at the border; one proposal comes from Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona) and John Cornyn (R-Texas). Among other provisions, the bill would aim to improve the process for asylum seekers and open up regional processing centers to better manage the flow of migrants coming across the border.
The Show spoke with Sen. Sinema both about the border and other issues, but started the conversation by asking how what we’re seeing now at the southern border compares with what we’ve seen in other instances where there has been a surge of migrants, in prior years, under past administrations.
