Statement by Congresswoman Monica De La Cruz on President Biden’s Photo Op in South Texas

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Monica De La Cruz (TX-15), a prominent national leader on border security issues, has issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s visit to South Texas: 

“As South Texans, we always welcome better border policies, but it should not have taken President Biden three years to acknowledge the worst border crisis in our country’s history. Under his watch, we’ve had over 10 million illegal border crossings. Just recently, we learned of the tragic case of Laken Riley, a young woman who was savagely murdered by an illegal immigrant who had repeatedly broken the law. We have also seen the heartbreaking images of migrant children at the border. This crisis needs to stop, and the last thing we need are photo ops from the same politician who caused this mess. We need strong leadership — and we need it now.”
