Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene blasted the Biden administration’s lax border policies and the Democrats’ refusal to attend a House Homeland Security Committee hearing in Texas.
Greene questioned U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz about an alleged explosive device found by Border Patrol agents in an area called No Man’s Land, which turned out to be a ball of sand and duct tape.
Ortiz declined to acknowledge the incident, citing classified information. Greene remained adamant that the public deserves to know and condemned the dangerous conditions faced by Border Patrol agents.
She mentioned co-sponsoring legislation to declare war on cartels and expressed her disgust with the Democrats’ absence from the hearing.
Greene shared a photo of the alleged object on Twitter, calling for the U.S. military to take action against Mexican cartels.
Fox News National Correspondent Bill Melugin refuted Greene’s claim, stating that a high-level CBP source informed him the object was fake and filled with dirt.
This incident highlights the growing border crisis under the Biden administration, where “catch and release” policies have been deemed illegal by a federal judge in Florida.
The judge’s ruling underscored the failure of Biden’s policies and the urgent need for stronger border security.
