Fox News calls Democrats to Democrats in Washington to explain how America's borders can be secured when hundreds of immigrants enter the United States every day.
Fox traveled to Washington to interview members of President Biden's administration, who have insisted for months that America's southern border is secure. Fox News requested an interview with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, but was denied. Foreign Minister Mayorkas also declined to answer questions outside his home in the capital.
Members of Congress who refused to address the border crisis with Fox include Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; Corey Bush, D-Miss; Benny Thompson, D-Mich., and Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y.

Meanwhile, Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill struggled to defend Biden's handling of the immigration crisis. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi acknowledged the need to "protect our border" but insisted that Biden "has a plan to fix this problem."
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer blamed Republicans for the lack of progress on immigration and said they would not support a compromise.
The Democratic instability comes as Republicans prepare to take control of the House and possibly the Senate. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Republicans will focus on changing the policy as they return to the House in November.
Many assumed Republicans would blame Mallorcas, but McCarthy said their first priority was passing the border security law and finalizing the anti-inflation law, which "hired 87,000 more IRS agents."
