Cornyn: ‘It Looks Like We’re On A Track To Do Absolutely Nothing’

GOP Leader: Congress on Track to do 'Absolutely Nothing' on Border Crisis

With the White House's emergency funding request for the Southern border in jeopardy, Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn on Tuesday added to the increased speculation that Congress would fail to act on the proposal before the August recess. "Unfortunately it looks like we're on a track to do absolutely nothing, which to me is the definition of political malpractice," the Texas Republican said while touting a measure he drafted with Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, changing a 2008 trafficking law to expedite immigration hearings for children.  http://video.statesman.com/GOP-Leader-Congress-on-Track-to-do-Absolutely-Nothing-on-Border-Crisis-26440905?playlistId=993#
