Has there ever been a more symbolic event involving lawmakers and their inability to safely control our borders than this?

Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and John McCain (R-AZ) were all touring the Mexican border, discussing a bipartisan immigration reform package, when this happened (h/t Weasel Zippers)…


Senator McCain later tweeted that border security, apparently working during those particular hours, apprehended the woman.

He then added that the “incident is another reminder that threats to our border security are real”.

Thank you Captain Obvious.
