ICYMI: Hinson Sees Southern Border Crisis Firsthand
Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) traveled to the southern border last week to see the national security and humanitarian crisis firsthand and hear directly from law enforcement and border patrol officers on the ground.
"Speaker Pelosi needs to come here, because just yesterday she said that things are moving in the right direction. We can tell you we just sat down with law enforcement officials from all over this border community, and they're telling us otherwise. They're telling us their resources are strapped, they're being outspent by cartels, and the cartels are changing their game faster than they can keep up. That's concerning to me as an Iowa mom. This a safety and security issue for our families, not only here on the border but across this country."
"Border agents are understaffed and underfunded to respond to the increase in illegal immigration. The immigration policy under the Biden Administration is making it worse."

"We need to respect our laws, we need to secure our border, and we need to make sure we stop this surge. The best way to do that is to be explicit in our language, I'm calling on the Biden Administration to do that."
