House Republicans have said despite his policies leading to a surge in illegal crossings, Joe Biden remains in denial about the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

While speaking at conference on Wednesday, Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) asserted border officials, churches and non-profits are overwhelmed as Biden refuses to acknowledge it. The Republican lawmaker made these remarks as detention facilities hit capacity amid Biden’s moratorium on deportations.

Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.) added on to Brady’s comments by asserting Biden is encouraging this by killing many of President Trump’s tough immigration policies. “He is incentivizing these young children, minors, to travel thousands of miles at the mercy of dangerous cartels,” stated the Arizona lawmaker.

In the meantime, at least 3,200 unaccompanied migrant children are being housed in Customs and Border Protection Holding Facilities. According to reports, many migrants at the southern border have also been testing positive for coronavirus.
