Border Residents to Congress: 'Stop Holding Press Conferences, Shut Down the Border'

• Worthy News

If Congress continues to use taxpayer dollars to fund policies that facilitate the border crisis, they argue, Congress is complicit in creating it and a national security threat.

Wednesday's meeting, led by U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-Louisiana, precedes congressional hearings scheduled this month about the border crisis and efforts to impeach U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Congress hasn't yet agreed to a $13.6 billion request from the president to fund "border enforcement and migration management." This includes hiring more judges and asylum staffers "to expedite the screening process" to release more people into the U.S., White House Communications Director Ben LaBolt recently explained. House Republicans have "refused to take up the President's supplemental funding request. Actions speak louder than words. It's time for House Republicans to act," he said.
