Senator John Hoeven calls on Biden administration to address "border crisis"

(Fargo, ND) -- Senator Hoeven is calling on the Biden Administration to address the immigration crisis at the southern and northern borders. 

"For fiscal year 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered almost 2.4 million individuals attempting to illegally cross the southern border," said Hoeven. 

Hoeven delivered the remarks on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Last week, Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz told a House Committee that the administration does not have operational control of the border. 

Hoeven says the administration needs to reinstate policies needed to gain control of the border. 

The Senator says the administration's polices have directly contributed to the border crisis.
