Summary

Ranking Member James Comer and Oversight Committee Republicans are investigating President Biden’s radical open borders policies that have created the worst border crisis in American history. Because of the Biden Administration’s reckless policies, human trafficking is flourishing, deadly drugs such as fentanyl are pouring into towns across the U.S., and our laws are being flouted. Republicans have called on Democrats several times to hold hearings on the worsening humanitarian and national security crisis at the border, but Democrats refuse to hold a single hearing. Republicans have made multiple trips to the border and have seen firsthand the human cost and deadly methods used by cartels to push drugs and crime across the border. We are committed to holding the Biden Administration accountable for its dereliction of duty and are seeking solutions to support the men and women who risk their lives to protect our border on a daily basis.

The facts are clear: President Biden created a crisis at the border. Since day one in office, President Biden has done more to reopen the border to illegal immigrants and stimulate the human smuggling industry.

I don’t think Joe Biden or Vice President Harris has any idea how bad it is. We went out on a night ride border patrol…it is mind-boggling how bad it is on the border.

President Biden’s radical open borders agenda has ignited the worst border crisis in American history. This administration’s reckless policies 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. Not only has the Biden Administration failed to secure the border, but it is also diverting critical taxpayer dollars intended for public health to pay for its self-inflicted crisis. Oversight Republicans will be relentless in our pursuit to hold Biden Administration officials accountable for this ongoing humanitarian, national security, and public health crisis. The Biden Administration must cooperate with congressional oversight in order to provide the American people with transparency and accountability.
