YUMA, Ariz. — Congressional Republicans who toured part of the southern border this week saw first-hand the number of families and children.
But the House lawmakers were shocked at the idea that smugglers recycle children across the border.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I think the entire delegation was shocked,” said Luke Ball, press secretary for Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.
The Washington Examiner was riding along with Reps. John Joyce of Pennsylvania, Pete Stauber of Minnesota, Dusty Johnson of South Dakota, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Gaetz Tuesday night when officials leading the tour pointed to a group of more than 40 people who had just crossed through the Colorado River south of the Morelos Dam and surrendered to Border Patrol agents less than a quarter-mile into the U.S.
“Right now, they’re getting their biographical information: name, first name, last name, date of birth, nationality. Right now, they may ask them where they’re going — how many people, if it was a family unit, were they by themselves, were they minors?” an agent, who spoke on background, told the group of lawmakers.
“Every one has a kid, at least one. Every one has a kid,” one congressman reacted at the scene.

“You have guys that come through here that do this for a living…they bring groups across, they bring drugs across.”

Yesterday, Sheriff Mark Lamb from the @PinalCSO showed us how illegal immigrants and smugglers travel through the Arizona desert. I am so grateful to him and his deputies for their service to their communities. pic.twitter.com/IcLYyJPKbQ

Johnson is not only getting an up-close look at how the border wall could be built, he’s also been talking with border patrol officers about the crisis and what can Congress do to help. https://t.co/SZ2UpcXitq

Earlier this week my colleagues & I received an aerial tour of our border from the outstanding individuals at @DEAPHOENIXDiv Seeing the landscape from the air was eyeopening. Congress must secure the border to protect Americans from the onslaught of illicit drugs pouring across. pic.twitter.com/NjXCT8fZXI
