Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul has released the following statement regarding the Biden administration’s failure to address the growing crisis at our southern border. As the Lead Republican on the committee, Rep. McCaul is responsible for oversight on State Department policy, including any strategy to address the root causes of migration. 

“The Biden administration – and border czar Vice President Harris in particular – have failed the American people when it comes to securing our southern border or even developing a coherent strategy to address the root causes of the migration crisis. I have little confidence this matter has been properly addressed at the Summit of the Americas, as President Biden and Vice President Harris couldn’t even secure the attendance of the leaders of Mexico and northern Central America. Where is all that renewed leadership we were promised by the Biden campaign?”
