McAllen, Texas – Starting today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) will be leading a congressional delegation (CODEL) to McAllen, Texas and Mexico to see the border crisis firsthand and meet with Mexican leaders. The bipartisan delegation includes Representatives Henry Cuellar (D-TX), Randy Weber (R-TX), Tony Gonzalez (R-TX), and Monica De La Cruz (R-TX). The delegation will visit the Texas border and view migrant processing facilities and other Customs and Border Patrol operations before heading to Mexico, where Chairman McCaul will stress the importance of reinstating Remain in Mexico with Mexican leaders.

“The crisis at our southern border continues to wreak havoc on communities across the nation, with Texas bearing the brunt of the burden,” said Chairman McCaul. “It’s crucial that congressmembers — especially those from Texas — see the situation firsthand and speak with those on the frontlines about critical solutions like my Remain in Mexico bill. I look forward to our conversations with border patrol as well as Mexican leaders and am confident this trip will better inform our continued push for substantive and effective policy changes to make our nation more secure.”
