Mayoral hearings and impeachment won’t matter unless Congress uses funding as leverage

During Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends” show on Fox News Channel, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said that unless Congress starts using the power of the wallet and says “we we are not going to give blank checks to this government”. unless they “turn away and detain, as required by current law,” the boundary will not be set, regardless of the number of hearings or if DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is removed.

Roy said, [relevant remarks begin around 1:30] “You have to use the power of the stock market. This is what you should use. Look, the thing is, the founders gave us this to verify an out-of-control executive branch. So we have to say we’re not going to give this government blank checks unless we actually say we’re going to turn away and detain, as the current law requires. But unless our leaders demand it, we won’t get any change. You can have all the hearings you want, you can impeach Mayorkas. But if you don’t use the power of the stock market to tell this administration that you will obey the law, you will turn away, you will stop, you will stop freeing, you will stop endangering the American people, you will stop flooding our country with fentanyl, you will stop allowing migrants to die like 53 in a tractor-trailer in San Antonio, you will stop having our ranchers run over and the fences cut down, you will stop empowering cartels, you will stop empower China. We should go on the offensive and use the power of the stock market to demand it. No more stop words. We don’t need more audiences.
