Biden finally allowed reporters to see the devastating border crisis he created and the photos make clear: this is far worse than anyone knew. American Action Network sent releases similar to the following in districts across the country including among others, Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07), Tom O'Halleran (AZ-01), Elaine Luria (VA-02) and Tom Malinowski (NJ-07).
Biden finally allowed reporters in to see the facilities at the southern border, and the photos that have emerged make clear: the Biden Border Crisis is far worse than we knew.
Facilities are 1700% over capacity. Pods (read: cells) designed for 32 people are packed with 615. Thousands kept over the legal limit. Children are being held with no place to sleep. And that's just to name a few eyepopping stats from the visit.
Conditions are heartbreaking and unacceptable, but Lizzie Fletcher STILL won't even call it a crisis, let alone step up to stop it.
'Biden's reckless immigration policies created this crisis, and it's being made worse by the day under Lizzie Fletcher's lack of leadership,' said ANN Communications Director Calvin Moore. 'Congresswoman Fletcher cannot continue burying her head in the sand and refuse to acknowledge, let alone step up to end, this heartbreaking crisis.'
