Did Lizzie Fletcher see the photos?
Biden finally allowed reporters in to see the facilities at the southern border, and the photos that have emerged make clear: the Biden Border Crisis is far worse than we knew.
Facilities are 1700% over capacity. Pods (read: cells) designed for 32 people are packed with 615. Thousands kept over the legal limit. Children are being held with no place to sleep. And that’s just to name a few eyepopping stats from the visit.

The Biden admin allowed pooled coverage for the first time.
We saw a “pod” designed for 32 migrant children under CDC guidelines now holding 615.
The facility is at 1700% pandemic capacity.

Conditions are heartbreaking and unacceptable, but Lizzie Fletcher STILL won’t even call it a crisis, let alone step up to stop it.
“Biden’s reckless immigration policies created this crisis, and it’s being made worse by the day under Lizzie Fletcher’s lack of leadership,” said ANN Communications Director Calvin Moore. “Congresswoman Fletcher cannot continue burying her head in the sand and refuse to acknowledge, let alone step up to end, this heartbreaking crisis.”
