The House Oversight Committee has announced it will hold a hearing in early February to address President Biden’s disastrous policies that are causing the worst border crisis in American history. Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., stated that the Biden administration’s radical open borders agenda has ignited the worst border crisis in American history.
The hearing will be calling on a handful of Biden administration career officials to testify, including Border Patrol Chief Patrol Agents Jason Owens, Gregory Bovino and Gloria Chavez and Acting Chief Border Patrol Agent Patricia McGurk-Daniel.
The Biden administration’s deliberate actions are fueling human smuggling, stimulating drug cartel operations, enabling deadly drugs such as fentanyl to flow into American communities, and encouraging illegal immigrants to flout U.S. immigration laws.
Republicans will hold the Biden administration accountable for this ongoing humanitarian, national security, and public health crisis that has turned every town into a border town.
Comer sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding documents and communications related to the surge at the border and the administration’s handling of the massive influx of migrants.
The American people deserve answers about the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) role in undermining Customs and Border Protection agents’ efforts to secure the southern border.
The Committee requests documents and information to understand DHS’s policies, the costs of the emergency measures needed to respond to the worsening crisis, and the national security risks created by these policies.
Instead of working to resolve the situation, the Biden administration is lying to the American people that the border is secure – despite thousands of illegal aliens and massive quantities of deadly fentanyl evading apprehension every day – and persisting in its ultimate goal to enact a massive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The Democrats are focused on making the lives of illegal aliens better instead of focusing on the needs of the American people.
This hearing is a wakeup call for the Democrats to get their act together and start putting the needs of the American people first. The Republicans will hold the Democrats accountable for this ongoing humanitarian, national security, and public health crisis that has turned every town into a border town. It is time for the Democrats to put their politics aside and work towards a solution that will benefit the American people.
