Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.) has introduced a bill that would require the Obama administration to report on the number of unaccompanied immigrant children in the U.S. and how many are showing up for hearings.
Terry's bill would direct the Attorney General, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), to report to Congress on the number of child migrants.
The Nebraska Republican said his bill would promote transparency about the influx of child migrants crossing the border.
"If the president is going to ask me to vote to spend nearly $4 billion taxpayer dollars to fix a crisis he caused, he and his administration need to level with the American people and tell us if these children are being sent into our communities," Terry said.
