AUSTIN, TX - Sen. Kelly Hancock, Veteran Affairs & Border Security Committee Chairman, today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling reinstating the Migrant Protection Protocols, or "remain-in-Mexico" policy:
"A border crisis is a drug crisis, a public safety crisis, a human trafficking crisis, and a COVID-import crisis all-in-one. Yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling is a welcome legal win for Texas as our state continues to step up where the Biden Administration has abdicated its duty at the border."
