Senators Cornyn and Cuellar Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Address Border Crisis
Bipartisan Immigration Bill Would Break the 'Cartel Business Model' (CNS News)
Two Texas lawmakers plan to introduce a bipartisan immigration bill on Tuesday that would address the current crisis on the Southwest border by undermining the "cartel business model."
Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar say their HUMANE Act would revise a 2008 law so that all unaccompanied minors entering the U.S. illegally are treated the same way, with speedy immigration hearings or an opportunity to return home voluntarily shortly after crossing the border.
"Our bill would fix the hole that is being exploited as part of the cartel business model, whereby they know that without adequate detention facilities, children are being released to relatives, never to be heard from again," Sen. Cornyn told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren Monday night.
