holding facility in Donna, TXA national defense analyst says the Biden administration must be held accountable for the border crisis it continues to invite and ignore.

14 Republican lawmakers recently went to the southern border to see first-hand just how big the crisis has become since President Joe Biden opened the floodgates for thousands of migrants, including many children, to pour across the border illegally.

"This is a tragedy," begins Bob Maginnis, senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council (FRC). "It is totally a Biden-imposed crisis, because he created it. It became pretty evident that most of the immigrants are coming because they felt the border was wide open to anyone. We had this under control under Mr. Trump, and now it's just Katy bar the door! They threw it wide open."

Maginnis has been contacting his two U.S. senators from Virginia, Democrats Mark Warner and Timothy Kaine, about the issue on an almost daily basis.

"I called on them to go down there much like the Republicans and see first-hand," he tells One News Now. "Mr. Biden hasn't been down there to see the first-hand crisis that he caused. For them to flood potentially more than a million or so people illegally into this country, not testing them for COVID -- and, in fact, 10% are likely COVID positive -- and then sending them all over the country when he has the country locked down because of COVID -- this has passed being insane; this is malfeasance."

Maginnis concludes that every American must call for the current administration to be held accountable.
