The recent controversy surrounding an alleged explosive device found at the U.S.-Mexico border, brought to light by Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, raises serious questions about border security and the Biden administration’s handling of the issue.
As a conservative opinion writer, I find it deeply concerning that Democrats chose to boycott a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, where crucial discussions about border security were taking place.

In just the last two years under the Biden Administration, fentanyl deaths in my district in Northwest Georgia have increased over 350%.

This move suggests that Democrats are not prioritizing the safety of American citizens or the brave Border Patrol agents who put their lives on the line every day.
While Fox News Correspondent Bill Melugin disputes Greene’s claims, stating that the alleged explosive was a fake, the underlying issue remains: our border is not secure, and the Biden administration is failing to adequately address this problem.
It is time for both parties to put politics aside and work together to secure our borders and protect American citizens.
The Biden administration must take a stronger stance on border security, and Democrats must show their commitment by engaging in crucial discussions rather than boycotting hearings.
