DNC on McCarthy’s Political Stunt to Distract from Voting Against Shots in Arms and Checks in Pockets

In response to Kevin McCarthy’s border stunt and a House GOP aide admitting that Republicans are “going to just watch to see what happens,” not offer solutions, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement:

“For four years, Kevin McCarthy didn’t say a word as Trump’s chaotic and incompetent leadership broke our immigration system, and he enabled Trump’s most inhumane policies. And now, instead of working with President Biden and Democrats to be a part of the solution, Republicans concocted a political stunt in a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that every last one of them voted against putting shots in arms and delivering checks to the American people. This is politics at its worst. It won’t work.”
