Oklahoma Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine attempted to visit a facility housing young people who crossed the border illegally, but he apparently didn’t have much luck:
From Rep. Bridenstine’s press release:
Congressman Jim Bridenstine (OK) was denied access yesterday to the HHS facility at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma currently housing up to 1,200 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) who illegally crossed the southern border into the United States.
Congressman Bridenstine said, “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held. Any Member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks.”
Experience the unprecedented levels of transparency!
