Bachmann heads to border

WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., travels to the United States-Mexico border this weekend to talk with Border Patrol officials and others about what her office calls "the current immigration crisis."

Along with U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, Bachmann will visit the Brownsville, McAllen and Laredo, Texas, areas.

“Although President Obama would prefer to play pool instead of visit the border, I want to see firsthand the impact of this administration’s immigration policies,” Bachmann said, referring to the president's recent Texas trip in which he did not visit the border area. “I have deep concerns over the failure to enforce border security laws, and I look forward to meeting with those tasked with patrolling the border to hear their thoughts on the growing crisis.”
