Rep. Michele Bachmann is paying a visit to the southern border this weekend to observe the ongoing illegal immigration crisis. Here are some of the images from her journey.

Here’s a statement from Bachmann about the visit via the Star Tribune:

“Although President Obama would prefer to play pool instead of visit the border, I want to see firsthand the impact of this administration’s immigration policies,” Bachmann said in a statement.

“I have deep concerns over the failure to enforce border security laws, and I look forward to meet with those tasked with the patrolling the border to hear their thoughts on the growing crisis.”
