(CNSNews.com) — On Thursday, Senator Rick Scott (R-Fla.) told CNSNews.com that “of course” he believes the president has the constitutional duty to enforce immigration laws, adding that “unfortunately, the Democrats won’t help us secure the border.”

CNSNews.com asked the senator “Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution says that the president ‘shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Do you think that the president have a constitutional duty to enforce immigration laws?”

Senator Scott said, “Of course, I think that’s what he’s trying to do. It’s a tough time. Unfortunately, the Democrats won’t help him secure the border, but we’re going to keep working on it.”

On June 20, U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said in written testimony before Congress that more than 593,000 people were apprehended at points of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border. She added there were more than 100,000 documented cases of people successfully crossing the border illegally.
