Former acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says that the Biden administration is refusing to acknowledge the hundreds of thousands of minor children crossing the southern border unaccompanied. 

"They need to talk about the 300,000 unaccompanied children that have come across that border in the first two years of this administration," Wolf said on Monday's edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "These are children that have been smuggled and trafficked across that border. They've come over with no parents, no guardians, and in many cases, no siblings."

According to Wolf, there is a major crisis at the border with thousands of people pouring in daily, and the migrant children are suffering major consequences as a result. 

"They have probably endured the worst part of this journey," Wolf stated. "And this administration doesn't even acknowledge them and doesn't necessarily change any policies that will have any effect and I think we need to ask them why."

Newly designated House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has recently announced that investigating the crisis at the southern border is going to be a top priority for the new GOP-controlled house. 

According to Wolf, Rep. Comer has called for border agents to testify in front of congress regarding struggles that they are facing with the border crisis. 

"Congressman Comer has announced some oversight hearings regarding the border," Wolf said. "There's a list of Border Patrol officers that he's invited to come to testify. I think that will be interesting. They're going to be asked what works along that border and what doesn't. Does physical infrastructure work? Does the remain in Mexico program work?"
