After a Facebook message linked to the cartel prompted over a thousand migrants to rush the U.S. southern border into El Paso on Sunday, Democrats are still showing their negligence when it comes to border security.

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green, R-Tenn., has confirmed that no Democratic members of the House Homeland Security Committee will attend the planned trip to McAllen, Texas, on Wednesday.

“It’s deeply disappointing that the Minority members of the Committee have chosen to bail on this week’s full committee field hearing in Texas, only after they invited and confirmed a minority witness for one of the panels,” Green said in a statement.

“The only message their absence sends is that they are uninterested in coming to the table to have a conversation about the devastation that this border crisis is having on Americans and their communities across the country. We will continue to encourage our Democrat colleagues to get out of the DC echo chamber and meet Americans where they are to discuss the biggest issues facing them.”

Ranking Member Bennie Thompson (D-MS) claimed that Democrats will not participate because “it has become clear that Republicans planned to politicize this event from the start.”
