Reid: Cornyn-Cuellar Bill ‘Too Broad,’ Border is ‘Secure’

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Tuesday he would oppose proposed legislation from Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, that would revise a 2008 trafficking law at the center of the child migrant crisis on the Southern border.

“From all the reports I’ve gotten on the legislation the answer from me is ‘no,’ I won’t support it,” Reid said, later adding the proposal was “too broad; it addresses more than just the border problem.”
