John McCain: ‘Cornyn and I are’ Going to Introduce House Border Bill in the Senate

by Joel Gehrke

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.
