Former Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf blames the surge in border crossings on Biden administration policy.
House Republicans on Thursday called for a hearing into the Biden administration’s response to a surge of unaccompanied children at the border — just as the administration has denied there is a migrant crisis.
"We write to request that you schedule a hearing of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship to examine the Biden Administration’s response to the sharp increase of unaccompanied alien children (UAC) arriving at the southern U.S. border," lawmakers led by Reps. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., said in a letter to Immigration and Citizenship Subcommittee Chair Zoe Lofgren.
"Proper oversight requires that Subcommittee Members have the opportunity to hear directly from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials, and to question them about the escalating crisis and whether they have plans to stop the surge," it continued.
