Today, Congressman Tony Gonzales (TX-23) led a Congressional Delegation to Eagle Pass. The members received briefings from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Border Patrol, and the Maverick County Sheriff’s Office.
They also received a private tour of the soft-sided migrant processing facility in Eagle Pass. Border Patrol currently has an estimated 5,000 migrants in custody at the facility – it is intended to hold 1,000.
“Now more than ever, Congress needs to pass a strong budget that puts a stop to Biden’s open-borders agenda,” said Congressman Tony Gonzales. “This should not be a partisan issue. My message is clear – end catch and release, stop using asylum as a hall pass, and put our Border Patrol Agents back on the frontlines.”
Congressman Tony Gonzales was joined by U.S. Representatives Jodey Arrington (TX-19), August Pfluger (TX-11), Ronny Jackson (TX-13), Nathaniel Moran (TX-1), and Brandon Williams (NY-22).
