Accountability is Coming
During election season Republicans all across the country ran on securing the border and holding those in charge of this crisis accountable. This past week, James Comer (R-KY), Chairman of the newly assembled House Committee on Oversight and Accountability became a HAWK when it came to finding answers, seeking transparency, and exposing those at fault for what Comer described as the “failure to resolve the worst border crisis in American history.” Rep. Comer even went as far as sending two distinct letters to Secretary Mayokras just in the last couple of days regarding the border crisis at-large as well as President Joe Biden’s recent visit to El Paso and the “sanitization” by authorities. Both of Rep. Comer’s letters requested a plethora of documents, namely statistics that have largely been withheld from the public regarding border crossings, gotaways, seizure rate of fentanyl, Border Patrol staffing numbers like retention rates, and recruitments. These letters also requested documentation and communications relating to “the use of non-governmental organizations in facilitating releases of recent illegal border crossers from DHS custody”, cooperation between the city of El Paso and Federal agencies in regards to homeless encampments occupied by illegal aliens but MOST IMPORTANTLY any communication between any Texas state agency specifically Texas DPS and the Department of Homeland Security concerning action taken to clean up the streets in preparation for Biden’s mere visit that quickly turned itself into an over staged photo-op.
The questions we should be asking ourselves is this:
Why would a Congressional Investigative Committee be requesting documents from a Federal Agency in relation to their correspondence with the state of Texas?
Did Texas Law Enforcement aid this Administration in cleaning up their mess?
We shall see.
Much of this goes without mentioning that the work done by Matt Gaetz and other Patriots at the beginning of this month to put pressure on his colleagues to gain this kind of aggression was invaluable!

Brian Harrison, a former Chief of Staff for the Department of Health and Human Services during the Trump administration and now a Republican State Representative hailing from Waxahachie has authored HB 1491 or as he touts it the “Texas Title 42 Act” which would effectively give the state of Texas and its’ law enforcement the power to deport, repel, and suspend entry of illegal aliens into the Texas and the country at-large so long as the COVID-19 disaster declaration continues to be in effect.
