California's 40th District

Apr 11, 2021 | Immigration, In The News

Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) said a delegation of the Problem Solvers Caucus will travel to the southern border for a two-day visit. The delegation will travel to Rep. Vicente Gonzalez’s (D-TX) district; Gonzalez is also a PSC member. The delegation hopes to discuss potential bipartisan solutions to immigration and border security; they will meet with federal, state, and local law enforcement as well as many humanitarian groups.

The delegation to the southern border will notably include many swing district Democrats such as Gottheimer and Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA). The members include:

  • Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
  • Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ)
  • Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX)
  • Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY)
  • Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA)
  • Rep. Young Kim (R-CA)
  • Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA)
  • Rep. Ed Case (D-HI)
  • Rep. Jim Costa (D-CA)

The bipartisan trip to the border follows as many House and Senate Republicans traveled to the southern border to see the border crisis unfolding fewer than 100 days into President Joe Biden’s administration.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) led members of the House Judiciary Committee this week to the southern border. He told Breitbart News’s Ashley Oliver:

This is … not just Jim Jordan talking, not just Republican members of the Judiciary Committee talking. This is the Border Patrol agents themselves, what they’re telling us. That’s what we’ve got to get done, and we have to talk about this and try to persuade our Democratic colleagues this is just good common sense.

He added, “This is for the good of the country, and frankly, it’s for the good of these kids and these families who are making that treacherous trek up through Mexico to get here.”
