(AbsoluteNews.com) – When President Joe Biden took office in January, he reversed many of former President Donald Trump’s border policies. The border spiraled out of control almost immediately. House Republicans are now attacking the president over the issue.
On August 9, 20 House Republicans sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding answers about the border crisis. The lawmakers, led by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), pointed out Border Patrol encountered roughly 210,000 illegals in July. They said that’s the “highest monthly total in the history” of DHS. The representatives blamed the crisis on the president’s “weak border policies.” They called the numbers of immigrants coming into the US appalling and said the DHS secretary isn’t doing his job.
Rep. Roy said the border is “wide open.”
Our border is wide open – this video from a source is one example of what is happening daily while @JoeBiden willfully disregards his duty to faithfully execute the laws to secure the border, endangering Americans, migrants, & @CBP. #ImpeachBiden #ImpeachMayorkas pic.twitter.com/7jPaYjmOUM

The lawmakers demanded the DHS secretary answer more than a dozen questions about what’s happening. They include questions about how many immigrants have illegally entered the US since Biden took office. The lawmakers also want to know how many have tested positive for COVID-19, received the vaccine for the virus, and were then released into the US.
Republicans plan to take action to force Mayorkas to respond if he doesn’t answer the questions by September 6.
