Senator John McCain and Senator John Cornyn (R., Texas) will likely introduce the House border legislation in the Senate, according to the Arizona Republican.
“Cornyn and I are [going to introduce] whatever the House passes,” McCain told National Review Online Wednesday afternoon. “I think that’s what we’re talking about; we aren’t fully committed, but that’s what we’re talking about.”
NRO’s Ryan Lovelace reported Wednesday that McCain and Cornyn were “working on a Senate version of the House supplemental-funding bill,” but Cornyn’s office disputed the report.
“Senator Cornyn is working with his entire caucus on a solution to the border crisis,” Cornyn spokeswoman Megan Mitchell told NRO Thursday when asked if McCain’s comments were correct.
