McALLEN, TX — U.S. Congressman Lou Barletta lashed out at the federal government Thursday, accusing unnamed officials of “not telling Americans the full story behind the growing crisis of unaccompanied minors at the border.”
Barletta made the charges at a special field hearing of the House Homeland Security hearing near the U.S. border with Mexico.
Earlier in the day, Barletta and other members of Congress toured a facility housing the minors at a nearby border patrol station.
The first witness before the committee was Governor Rick Perry, who said he did not believe the federal government was being honest
