This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to Texas—I visited the U.S-Mexico border.
I knew that the border crisis was serious, but nothing could have prepared me for just how bad this situation truly is.
The results of the Obama administration’s lawlessness when it comes to enforcing existing immigration laws were magnified in the Rio Grande Valley, where Congressman Steve King and I visited a number of facilities and met with local, state, and federal officials.
What we saw was people processing, not border security.
Americans would be shocked to learn that virtually no one is stopped before gaining entrance. When a foreign national illegally enters the United States, they are taken to a processing facility, where it is determined whether or not they get to stay in the country.
While the popular media narrative has been to focus on the children who came here alone, it is only a small fraction of the growing problem along the southern border.
