Republicans Urge Biden to Reinstate National Emergency at the Border

More than two dozen House Republicans on Friday urged President Biden to reinstate a national emergency declaration for the southern border, as the U.S. faces a dramatically escalating border crisis.

In a letter, led by Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas, the lawmakers say the Biden administration’s “refusal to enforce immigration laws has encouraged countless migrants to make the treacherous journey across our border.”

“We urge you to recognize that an immigration crisis is underway and reinstate a national emergency concerning our southern border,” the letter says. The Daily Caller first reported the letter.

The lawmakers signed on include Reps. Jim Banks, R-Ind.; Brian Babin, R-Texas; Majorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.; Lauren Boebert, R-Colo.; Jody Hice, R-Ga., and Michael Cloud, R-Texas.
