week we inspected conditions at the Rio Grande Valley border sector.
It’s the busiest sector for unauthorized entry into our country.

Here’s what we saw (THREAD):

We received a briefing from @CBPRGV Chief Rodolfo Karisch.

He gave us an update on the current status of the humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

Border Patrol agents are giving it their all, but until we fix the underlying causes, the crisis will continue.

Border Patrol agents showed us the Rio Grande Valley Central Processing Center.

This facility opened in 2014 under President Obama. At the time, it was hailed as the “gold standard” of border facilities.

thanked us for passing the border supplemental package. It gave them
resources to immediately purchase additional necessary supplies to help
with the humanitarian crisis.

But more needs to be done.

Border Patrol told us that the crisis requires a “whole of government approach.” The Coast Guard is volunteering to help.

This is who Democrats are attacking when they claim that there’s an “empathy deficit.”

Everyone is doing their level best to care for children.

The supplemental package allowed Border Patrol to increase the capacity of the Donna Holding Facility.

But expanding space is not enough. We have to address the underlying problems:

-More ICE beds

-Fix Flores decision

-Reform asylum laws

-Build the Wall

Border Patrol took us to the border itself, including a boat patrol of the Rio Grande River.

We saw Mexican government authorities patrolling. Border Patrol told us
this was a direct result of the Trump Administration’s efforts to work
with Mexico.

Thanks to the hard working men and women of Border Patrol and everyone else giving it their all to deal with the crisis.

We stand with you in fighting to end the unprecedented humanitarian crisis and secure our southern border.

Democrats are engaged in presidential obstruction. They’re so desperate to stop the President that they won’t help the country.

The President’s had enough! Can’t blame him. (1/7)

Congress has a legitimate constitutional role
to conduct oversight of the executive branch. But that’s not what the
Democrats are doing.

They’re digging into the President’s personal life from BEFORE he was a
candidate. There can only be one reason to do this: POLITICS. (2/7)

Republicans conducted serious oversight on abuses of gov’t power by the Obama-Biden administration:

-IRS targeting conservatives
-Fast & Furious gun-running
-Solyndra and other green companies wasting taxpayer dollars
-Benghazi tragedy
-FBI/DOJ targeting Trump campaign (3/7)

Democrat members of Congress should take a deep breath and read the Special Counsel’s report before jumping to conclusions.

The Attorney General concluded what we long suspected. No collusion. No obstruction. (1/5)

It would be a miscarriage of justice to use
cherry-picked bits of information from the report to sow further
divisiveness and spread conspiracies that serve only to undermine our
democratic institutions. (2/5)
One thing, however, is clear with the release of the report today: this sad chapter of American history is behind us.

It’s time to turn back to the people’s work of improving the efficiency,
economy, and effectiveness of how their tax dollars are spent. (3/5)

-Lied 3 times to the FBI and fired
-Referred for criminal prosecution
-Was part of the plot to use the Dossier against the President

Still zero evidence of Russian collusion. Lots of evidence that Andy McCabe is untrustworthy and politicized the FBI. (1/3)

McCabe is not trustworthy, but still
remarkable he’s the 3rd person to say there was a plot inside the DOJ to
remove the President from office. (2/3)
TV interviews are nice, but we need Rod
Rosenstein and Andy McCabe to appear, under oath, in front of the
Oversight Committee—the American people deserve the truth. (3/3)

BREAKING: Photos show hundreds of migrants crammed into overflowing border facilities.

bomb,” according to DHS Office of the Inspector General report. on.msnbc.com/2ND1sKC

Government investigators have identified poor
conditions in another sector of the southern border, publishing photos
of overcrowding in Rio Grande Valley migrant facilities and finding that
children there did not have access to showers and had to sleep on
When immigrants detained in the facilities
saw investigators walking through, they banged on the cell windows and
pressed notes against the plexiglass to show the amount of time they had
spent in custody, the report says. One said “Help. 40 Days Here.” nbcnews.to/2XQHP65

🚨 NEW: DHS Office of Inspector General’s
report on “dangerous overcrowding” at the El Paso Del Norte Processing
Center is now out.

900 people held in a facility designed for 125!

In one case, “a cell with a maximum capacity of 35 held 155 detainees.”

DHS OIG visited five different CBP facilities
in the El Paso area over the week of May 6, 2019. What they found was
massively overcrowded cells with asylum seekers packed in like sardines.

In one case, the Border Patrol had put 76 women into a cell designed for just twelve.

One cell was designed for just 8 people. But the Inspector General found 41 women forced into it.

According to the OIG, “overcrowding and prolonged detention represent an
immediate risk to the health and safety not just of the detainees, but
also DHS agents and officers.”
