NEIL CAVUTO (HOST): Don't Americans deserve some progress on this issue itself, Senator? I mean, Republicans were blocking a bipartisan measure that seemed to be very promising, until Donald Trump came and said, "This is a waste of time, don't do that, this is a big election year issue for us." Now, I'm not sure that was your sentiment, I want to be clear, but Republicans botched a chance to deal with this crisis as well, right?

SEN JOHN BARRASSO (GUEST): Well, what we know is the president of the United States refuses to enforce the law. That's one of the reasons Mayorkas is being impeached: refusing to enforce the law of the land. We can pass many more laws. If a president refuses to enforce them, what difference does it make -- 

CAVUTO: But you did. You had a measure -- you had a measure, it wasn't perfect, right? I mean -- you know, it takes two to tango here. And I'm just wondering if this president by executive order didn't do enough, and this measure wasn't enough, it's fair to say both parties dropped the ball on it, right?
