GOP Congressional Members Watch Migrants Cross Southern Border Hours Before Trump Arrives

Republican Congressional members inspected the border crisis Wednesday morning and found migrants crossing into the United States, just hours before Former President Donald Trump arrives on an official visit.

A Politico reporter tweeted a video of  Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Mary Miller (R-IL) walking with captured migrants, who said they came from Guatemala.

President Joe Biden previously removed the “Remain in Mexico” policy Trump enforced, which kept migrants in Mexico while they sought asylum.

Another video depicts Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) speaking with a border officer, who explained during the conversation that he must make sure “the group of migrants who just crossed haven’t left any little kids in the woods/brush”:

Additional photos from the early morning show migrants apprehended at the border, while Republican Congressional members seek to place a spotlight on Biden’s open-border policies.

The reason for the lack of focus on border security by the Biden administration is unknown.

The Biden administration seems to have few real solutions to the crisis after revoking the former administration’s border security policies, such as ending the “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Trump will inspect the southern border crisis Wednesday with Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) amid a nearly 700 percent spike in illegal immigrant crossings since last May.

The Washington Post reported:

During his visit, Trump will attend a border security briefing with state officials and law enforcement Wednesday morning, which will be followed by a tour of the ‘unfinished border wall,’ according to Abbott’s office. He will then participate in a town hall, moderated by Fox News’s Sean Hannity.
