Rep. Lauren Boebert just returned from another fact-finding trip to the southern border.


The Colorado Republican joins us today on “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss her trip, migrant children crossing the border that she ran into there, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s tally of the number of would-be illegal immigrants taken into custody at the border in June.


“I’ve gone three times now to the border, and each time, it’s just more and more devastating, and the reality of this crisis is brought more into perspective of what’s really taking place. I was down in McAllen, Texas, most recently with [former] President [Donald] Trump, and I saw groups of unaccompanied minors, dozens of groups of unaccompanied minors,” Boebert says.


“And these children didn’t have adults with them because of the Biden policies, because [President Joe] Biden is encouraging families to self-separate. If your child is 6 years of age or under, then you could cross with them, but if they’re older than that, then they can’t cross with you. So, they have a better chance of crossing the border without their children, putting their children in the hands of the [human smuggling] cartel and risking their lives.”
