Trump is going to visit the southern border next week to see the problem firsthand.
During his trip, Trump will be joined by a group of House Republicans.
Republicans have been sounding the alarm about the border crisis for months, unlike the Biden administration and Democrats.
House Republicans to Join Trump on Texas Border Visit
A group of House Republicans are planning to join former President Donald Trump on his visit to the southern border next week, Politico reported.
Members of the House’s largest GOP caucus, the Republican Study Committee, plan to join Trump at the border, Politico said Wednesday.
A spokesperson for Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., RSC chair, confirmed to Politico that the lawmaker would be among about a dozen committee members making the trip next Wednesday. Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, also will take part.
“President Trump spent four years fixing the border. But the Biden administration broke it again, and we are now experiencing the worst border crisis in our history,” Banks said in a statement.
“That’s why the RSC has made carrying on the Trump legacy on immigration our top priority this Congress and why we are heading to the border with President Trump to explain how we can end this national embarrassment.”
Trump released a statement about the Biden administration’s dereliction of duty.

It’ll be fascinating to hear what Trump has to say after his visit.
Perhaps he will offer some recommendations, not that Biden and Harris will listen.
