EXCLUSIVE: Republicans on three House committees on Monday requested a meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris over what they described as a “catastrophe” at the southern border — amid accusations that the Biden administration’s policies have fueled the historic surge in migrants.
In a letter to Harris, Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, John Katko, R-NY, and James Comer, R-Ky — the ranking members on the House Judiciary, Homeland Security and Oversight Committees respectively — request a meeting “to discuss the Biden-Harris administration’s response to the catastrophe on the southern border.”
“Over two weeks ago, President Joe Biden delegated the administration’s response to the humanitarian and security crisis at the southern border to you. However, it is unclear what, if any actions you have directed or plan to initiate to respond to the crisis that continues to worsen each day,” reads the letter, obtained by Fox News.
Border officials encountered more than 172,000 migrants in March alone, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has said that the U.S. is on track to encounter more migrants than it has in 20 years.
