Iowa’s Congressional Delegation Blasts Closure Of Texas Rail Border Crossings

Iowa — The six Republicans who represent Iowa in the US House and Senate are calling on the Biden Administration to reopen rail crossings in Texas.

The US Border Patrol suspended rail operations at the border crossings in Eagle Pass and El Paso on Monday to shift agents to process migrants crossing the border. Congressman Zach Nunn of Bondurant says those two rail crossings are critical to getting Iowa grain and agricultural exports to Mexico.

Iowa’s congressional delegation sent a letter to President Biden and the US Secretary of Homeland Security yesterday (Wednesday), calling the situation at the southern border grave. Nunn says the Biden Administration’s failure to secure the border is making things tougher for law enforcement in Iowa.

Nunn met with local officers at the Davis County Law Enforcement Center in Bloomfield on Wednesday.
