Both of Montana's congressmen and Republican US Senate candidate Tim Sheehy have come out swinging against the so-called "border deal" in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Now, Montana's US Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) says he is a no.

Just before 7 a.m. on Monday Senator Daines tweeted this out via X:

Sen. Daines: I can’t support a bill that doesn’t secure the border, provides taxpayer funded lawyers to illegal immigrants and gives billions to radical open borders groups. I’m a no.

He added:

President Biden should instead use his executive authority to reinstitute the Trump policies he canceled:  Remain in Mexico, Title 42, Wall construction

There's many problems with this so-called "border deal"- the biggest of which is this: Joe Biden doesn't need a bill to fix the border. He caused this problem with his 94 executive orders that opened the borders, he can stop this crisis by simply putting the Trump policies back in place. Even the liberal HBO host Bill Maher made that point over the weekend.

As for the Senate negotiators, I think Congressman Ryan Zinke (R-MT01) made a good point last week when he joined us on the radio. I'll summarize but it is something to the effect of, I'm sure Senator Lankford is a nice enough guy, but why not get someone like a Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-MT) in there negotiating when it comes to the southern border.

Here's the audio of that conversation:
