Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tony Gonzales (TX-23) focused attention on the nation's humanitarian crisis and influx of unaccompanied minors at the southern border on the House Floor Wednesday, highlighting the story of five unaccompanied migrant girls who were found abandoned by a rancher in Quemado, Texas.

Congressman Gonzales represents Texas’ 23rd District, which encompasses more 820 miles of U.S.-Mexico Border – the most of any Congressional District in the country.

“My district represents 820 miles of U.S.-Mexico border, which is 40% of our southern border,” said Congressman Gonzales.

“I will tell you, the Biden Border Crisis is as bad as it’s ever bee – and it is only getting worse. Over 20,000 unaccompanied children are in HHS custody and the number is only rising.

"These children don’t have a voice, these children aren’t represented. These children are nothing more than a stat on a paper, and that is wrong.

“The situation at our southern border is desperate. We need to act now.

"We need to reform immigration and we need to secure our southern border – not only for these young ladies, but for all children that are making that dangerous trek and all people that live along the border that see this every single day.”
