WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Speaker Kevin McCarthy (CA-20) announced that he will lead a Congressional Delegation to the southern border on Thursday, February 16 with four House of Representatives freshman Members, including Congressman Derrick Van Orden (WI-03).

Following the announcement, Congressman Van Orden released the following statement:

“I am heading back to the border for the second time this week, which means I will have been there twice as many times as the president.

“Biden finally had to admit that fentanyl has killed over 140,000 of our fellow Americans, including many in my district.

“Congress will continue to highlight this crisis until this administration secures the border and starts protecting our fellow Americans.”
