Corker declines to back Blackburn, defends migrants caravanning to U.S.

Corker, who declined to seek re-election, also defended the migrants walking toward the U.S. border from Central America, where “there’s unbelievable corruption, they’re being tortured,” and their countries have terrible leaders. “I look around the room, and I know most of you pretty well,” he added. “I have a feeling that if you were living in one of these Central American countries and you had little girls and little boys you were raising, you might be trying to figure out a way to come to the great United States of America.”
