WASHINGTON — The north country’s legislators have banded together to form a caucus focused on the northern border’s security.

On Tuesday, Reps. Elise M. Stefanik and Claudia L. Tenney announced they had joined the Northern Border Security Caucus, a coalition of House Republicans who say they are concerned that the security of the northern border has decreased in recent years.

The problem is actually the Republicans themselves. They complain all the time, but refuse to do anything meaningful to fix it.

And they have been saying since Biden took office how the ‘border is wide open’, which eventually filters down to those who seek to move here one way or the other.

Record apprehensions do not equal open borders. It’s proof that the borders are NOT open.
