WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) released the following statement after the Senate failed to advance a bipartisan compromise on border security and immigration reform:
“Today, I voted to do something about the crisis at our southern border, curb the fentanyl epidemic, and deliver for Wisconsin communities. This bipartisan compromise was a promising opportunity to invest in high-tech border security, disrupt the deadly flow of fentanyl into our country, streamline our asylum process, and ensure Wisconsin communities receiving migrants have the resources they need. Unfortunately, some of my colleagues decided to play politics and block this common-sense, compromise approach. I remain committed to being part of the solution to fix our broken immigration system, secure our Southern border, and work with Republicans and Democrats to keep Wisconsinites safe.”
