“Our sovereignty, our solvency, our national security are all on the line,” says. Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas), who called out the Biden administration’s rhetoric on the border and said it has fueled a mounting humanitarian and security crisis. In recent days, the numbers of children and families caught trying to enter the United States illegally from Mexico has grown to magnitudes unseen since before the pandemic. Customs and Border Protection has noted a more than 100 percent month-over-month increase in February in two categories of illegal aliens—family units and unaccompanied minors. “Human trafficking, drugs, crime, [and] the draining of our public coffers for education and healthcare” are the consequences of a poor border policy, in Rep. Babin’s view. He is the Co-Chairman of the Congressional Border Security Caucus.
