Gov. Wes Moore (D-Md.) Blames Congressional Republicans for Border Fiasco Following Migrant Murder

Has anyone but me actually read the Senate border bill?

Gov. Moore’s ill-informed comments on the merits of the Senate border bill do nothing to protect Marylanders, two of whom were allegedly raped and murdered by illegal migrants.
