At the congressional delegation press conference at the southern border, Texas Congressman Pete Session spoke on what he described as the “invasion” at the border. Led by Congressmen Jodey Arrington and Brian Babin, the Texas Congressional Delegation trip to the southern border to assess the border situation took place on Tuesday. Arrington and Babin were joined by Reps. Michael Burgess, Louis Gohmert, Ronny Jackson, Pete SessionsBeth Van Duyne, Randy Weber, Pat Fallon, Troy Nehls, Kevin Brady, John Carter and Chip Roy

At the press conference, Sessions shared his views on the border crisis and attacked the Biden administration for “encouraging the invasion.” Characterizing the migrants seeking entrance to the United States as “rapists, murderers, people who do not belong in this country,” Sessions emphasized that the cities would bear the burden for the influx of people.

“It is very important for us to understand that this administration not only has given the words and viewpoint that is encouraging this invasion on our country, but it’s important to note that law enforcement has been neutered in their opportunity to see and build to respond properly to the needs of the people the laws of this country,” said Sessions.

He denounced the Biden administration for its failure to address the border issue: “This administration not only has given the words and viewpoint that is encouraging this invasion on our country, but it’s important to note that law enforcement has been neutered in their opportunity to see and build to respond properly to the needs of the people and laws of this country.”

Sessions went on to demand the tightening of immigration policies and for the Biden administration to focus on the current domestic challenges, including school re-openings, the management of the coronavirus pandemic and the return to work. The Texas congressman concluded by describing the crisis as a “slap in the face” to law enforcement, taxpayers, and those who believe in the rule of law.”

In a subsequent press release, Sessions affirmed his commitment to “solutions that will secure our border and put the American people first,” promising that “this will not be a one-time visit; we are here for the long-run.”
