Congress

Aderholt visits southern border, calls on Biden to act

Aderholt called on Biden to reinstate former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy as well as complete the border wall.

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt visited the southern border in Eagle Pass, Texas on Wednesday to demonstrate concern about security.

“What is happening at our border – today and every day since President (Joe) Biden was sworn into office three years ago – is outrageous and must be stopped,” said Aderholt. “People were streaming across the border illegally as we watched. And there is no way to know who these people are or what their intentions are. Our border patrol officers, and our nation, are at a breaking point. And the Biden Administration seems to not care.”

In video posted Tuesday to his X profile, Aderholt speaks about the issue as two immigrants appear to be crossing a river into U.S. territory.

“The evidence is undeniable. On his first day in office, President Biden rolled back Trump policies that were working, including construction of the border wall,” Aderholt said. “And his Administration has attacked anyone who suggests or attempts to fix this disaster, whether it be members of Congress or state and local officials.

Aderholt called on Biden to reinstate former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy as well as complete the border wall, but admitted that is a fruitless call to action that really serves as a campaign pitch for the upcoming General Election in November.

“I have no confidence that President Biden or his Administration will act. While it will be up to the Republicans in the House to use the levers of government at our disposal, it is also up to the voters in November to stop this invasion of our nation’s sovereignty and security.”
