Cornyn Credits Bush for Improved Border Security

President Barack Obama said in a speech Tuesday that security has improved on our southern border over the past two years. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, agrees, The Hill reports.

However, Cornyn doesn’t think the credit should go to Obama.

"We are better than we were, I will grant the president that," Cornyn told Fox News.

"But a lot of that's . . . because of what the Bush administration and Congress did during the preceding eight years, not what President Obama and his administration [have] done."

Despite the improvement, our border with Mexico “is still a very porous" one, Cornyn said.

He agrees with other Republicans that border security must come before immigration reform.

"People are coming from around the world through what they know is a porous border to come to the United States without us knowing who they are, what their motives are," Cornyn said.

"This is a national security problem."
