‘WE NEED TO SHOVE IT DOWN THEIR THROATS’: Rep. Roy Goes Off on Inaction on Border Security

Texas Rep. Chip Roy (R) stopped by Fox News’ The Faulkner Focus to discuss his frustrations with both parties and the inaction on securing the southern border. He didn’t just blame Democrats —Roy says the GOP needs to “get a little religion, too.”

“But Republicans need to get a little religion, too. We introduced legislation in the spring of ’21 to make sure we codify Title 42 and it took me a year of browbeating my own Republican colleagues to get us to the point where we have 212 signatures on a discharge petition to move Rep. Yvette Herrell’s (R-NM) bill to codify Title 42 and ensure that it be enforced. Where was our leadership? Why didn’t Whip Scalise (R-LA) whip it? Why didn’t our leadership team move it? This is why we’re having some questions about what we need to do to use the entirety of our tools, the power of the purse, and our tools in Washington to demand this administration do their duty to secure the border of the United States. We need to shove it down their throats.”
