Cornyn: Senator Reid Has Turned The Senate into a "Killing Field" For Good Legislation

AUSTIN, Texas -- In a recent appearance at the University of Texas at Austin for the annual Texas Tribune Festival, Texas Senator John Cornyn voiced his frustration with a "dysfunctional" Senate "relegated to show votes" because of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's strict control and refusal to allow Republican bills to even be debated, much less come up for votes. One particular area of frustration for Cornyn was the lack of action on a bill he sponsored with Representative Henry Cuellar (D-San Antonio) regarding the surge of unaccompanied alien children (UACs), mostly from Central America, who had been crossing the border illegally from Mexico. Breitbart Texas interviewed Cornyn on this topic and about his hopes for the 2014 elections and beyond. 2 Oct 2014, 5:22 AM PDT
