From border states like Texas and Arizona to sanctuary cities like New York and Chicago — the southern border crisis continues worsening across the U.S. With this comes increasing concerns from House Republicans about the number of children being trafficked across the border or being taken advantage of by bad actors. Iowa Congresswoman Ashley Hinson is addressing this severe issue with the PRINTS Act, a bill that, if passed, would allow border patrol agents to fingerprint non-citizens crossing the border under the age of 14 to ensure children are identified and cannot easily be harmed or used repeatedly by those with ill intentions. On the Rundown, Rep. Hinson explains why addressing the border crisis is such a huge priority for her and how important it is that the Biden Administration acknowledge the severity of the situation. She also discusses how her constituents in Iowa are feeling about the Republican presidential candidates who are aiming to win over Iowans before the Iowa caucuses on January 15.
