“The Biden administration has this under control,” Pelosi stated.
Republicans said Biden’s open border policies led to the growing humanitarian crisis, as border facilities and resources are being exhausted.
No press. No cameras.
What is Biden hiding?
Next week, I’m bringing 15 senators to the border. DHS said NO to our request to bring media.
Outrageous & unacceptable.
I will continue to fight for press access so every American can see this crisis for themselves! #BorderCrisis https://t.co/mKL58kQsPu
