Comer Announces Hearing on Biden’s Border Crisis
WASHINGTON–Today, House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) announced the committee will hold a hearing to investigate the Biden Administration’s policies that have fueled the ongoing border crisis the week of February 6th.
“President Biden’s radical open borders agenda has ignited the worst border crisis in American history. 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,” said Chairman Comer.
Chairman Comer has invited the following career government officials to testify at the hearing about how U.S. Border Patrol agents are managing the crisis and the impact of the crisis on their mission to secure the border:
● Jason Owens, Chief Patrol Agent, U.S. Border Patrol
● Gregory Bovino, Chief Patrol Agent, U.S. Border Patrol
● Gloria Chavez, Chief Patrol Agent, U.S. Border Patrol
● Patricia McGurk-Daniel, Acting Chief Patrol Agent, U.S. Border Patrol
Chairman Comer also wrote a letter to U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas requesting documents, communications, and information about DHS’s role in undermining efforts to secure the southern border.
