Failed 2016 presidential candidate Evan McMullin is calling out Congress for not doing more to stop Donald Trump’s new zero-tolerance immigration policy that arrests all illegal border crossers in an effort to secure our borders and enforce our laws as a basic matter of national security and rule of law:

And, of course, McMullin was a big fan of making sure “we secure our borders and enforce our laws as a basic matter of national security and rule of law” when he was running in 2016:

Our immigration system must secure our borders and enforce our laws as a basic matter of national security and rule of law. Once our borders are secure, we can begin a national debate on developing a system where law-abiding people can seek a path to legal residence and in some cases citizenship. Our immigration policies should give preference to people who bring unique skills, innovative ideas, technologies and companies to our country.

He even called Hillary Clinton out for being weak on border security during the campaign, whatever that means:

And now like Senators McCain and Flake, who also advocated for a zero-tolerance approach, McMullin is backpedaling now that the consequences of that approach are realized.

(This is also why a large number of GOP voters never trusted the 18 other GOP candidates on immigration because their past words mean nothing.)
