ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — Rep. Steve Womack (AR-3) and Rep. French Hill (AR-02) are joining other lawmakers in traveling to the southern border.
Members arrived Thursday, April 8, and met with Border Patrol agents. They will participate in an evening ride-along tour with the National Border Patrol Council.
On Friday, April 9, members will tour the Donna Migrant Processing Facility and the border wall in McAllen, Texas.
Congressman Womack has recently called for hearing to examine what he calls a “security and humanitarian crisis at our border.”
Many Republican lawmakers blame the Biden administration’s policies for encouraging migrants to cross the border.
Many Democrats say they’re trying to fix the system that was dismantled by the Trump administration.
