Bishop Announces Subcommittee Hearing on Northern Border Crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Committee on Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability Chairman Dan Bishop (R-NC) will hold a hearing to examine the worsening crisis at our Northern border, which has been exacerbated by the diversion of limited, critical resources from the Northern border to address the Biden administration’s self-made crisis at the Southwest border.

Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability hearing entitled, “Biden’s Growing Border Crisis: Death, Drugs, and Disorder on the Northern Border.” 

“While the historic crisis at our Southwest border has, deservedly, been the media and Congress’ main focus, the Biden-Mayorkas agenda has also proved calamitous for our once-orderly Northern border. The U.S.-Canada border is now a hot spot for illegal alien crossings, including individuals on the terrorist watchlist, organized criminal activity, and illicit drug smuggling,” said Subcommittee Chairman Bishop. “Illegal alien encounters are up more than 800 percent from last fiscal year in the Swanton Sector alone. The Biden administration has encouraged and facilitated this lawlessness and left our Northern Border Patrol agents without the means to accomplish their mission and defend our porous border. President Biden and Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas must answer for this growing crisis and their disastrous policies that created it.”


WHAT: A hearing to conduct crucial oversight on the worsening crisis on our Northern border, the causes, and the Biden administration’s response.

DATE: Tuesday, March 28, 2023

TIME: 10:00 AM ET

LOCATION: 310 Cannon House Office Building


Witnesses will be announced and are by invitation only.

The hearing will be open to the public and press and will be livestreamed online here.
