OSHKOSH—On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), member of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, along with Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) sent a letter to Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mi.), chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, requesting that he immediately convene a public hearing to examine the Biden Administration’s termination of Title 42 border restrictions and other border enforcement policies. 

The senators wrote, “Since the beginning of the 117th Congress, members of this Committee have repeatedly raised the need for the Committee to conduct oversight of the crisis at the southern border. Under your leadership, however, the full Committee has only had one border-related hearing, and thus has failed to carry out its responsibility to conduct meaningful oversight of the southern border crisis.” 

The senators went on to request, “a much-needed hearing to discuss how the Biden Administration plans to deal with the massive surge of illegal immigration that will result from their policies.”
