The House of Representatives did the right thing on border security. Why not the Senate?

McCarthy said, “[T]he House did pass a bill that protects and secures the border. The Senate, it takes 60 votes. So, when it really comes to the question of shutting down, it comes to Schumer. Does Schumer make a decision to shut down or not?” click here
