As the border crisis continues to grow, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) has shared the real experience at the southern border. In a tweet Friday, the Louisiana lawmaker shared a live video, which showed an estimated 100 unaccompanied minors freely crossing into the U.S.
Scalise said the procession was non-stop as migrants were ushered from Mexico straight to a Customs and Border Protection processing facility.
“Probably over 100 people right here, just in the last hour that are waiting to go off to a processing facility,” Scalise stated. “They are coming into America because Joe Biden has created this magnet where he said the border is open.”
Scalise added, the situation is out of control. Meanwhile, fellow GOP lawmakers have shared similar videos at the border as the crisis continues under the Biden administration.
