Senator Rick Scott's Week in Review: 10/31/2022

Image
This week, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement again calling on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that it made 2.37 MILLION arrests at the southern border in the last fiscal year – an all-time high. 

Senator Rick Scott said, “The American people have had enough of Alejandro Mayorkas’s lies and failures. Despite undeniable evidence that his gross negligence toward securing our southern border is endangering our families and communities across the country, Mayorkas thinks he is doing just fine. WRONG. Contrary to what the Secretary thinks, the border is NOT secure. America is LESS SAFE because of his failures. Mayorkas must resign NOW. Just look at the numbers: 2.37 MILLION illegal aliens apprehended; nearly 15,000 pounds of fentanyl seized from drug smugglers crossing our border. How many moms and dads need to lose a child to these evil drugs? How many American lives have to be cut short, families devastated, before Mayorkas and Biden change course? Every day that Mayorkas remains in charge at DHS is another day of pathetic disservice to the American people. I’ve been to the border and I’ve seen how understaffed, under-resourced and unsupported the CBP is. It’s shameful that these brave men and women aren’t getting the support they need. The Biden administration’s policy of open borders and amnesty is killing Americans, and Alejandro Mayorkas, whose primary job is to secure the homeland, should resign today for dereliction of duty.”

Sens. Rick Scott, Jim Risch and Colleagues Release Statement on Sham Conviction of Jimmy Lai
Senator Rick Scott joined Ranking Member Jim Risch, of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Senators Ben Cardin, Bill Cassidy, Dick Durbin, Tom Cotton, Tim Kaine, Kevin Cramer, Jeff Merkley, Mike Crapo, Chris Van Hollen, Chuck Grassley, Jim Inhofe, Ron Johnson, Marco Rubio and Pat Toomey to release the below joint statement following the sham trial and conviction of Jimmy Lai in Hong Kong:

“Jimmy Lai is a man of integrity and character – a strong advocate for press freedom and democracy, a man of faith, a devoted husband and father, and a hardworking entrepreneur. The Chinese Communist Party is using bogus fraud charges to smear Mr. Lai’s reputation and justify an additional sham National Security Law (NSL) trial in December.

“We have not forgotten the plight of Hong Kongers, Mr. Lai, and the many other political prisoners in Hong Kong. The international community is closely watching Mr. Lai’s so-called ‘fraud’ conviction and future NSL trials.”
