U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips visited the border twice in less than two months, following a conversation with U.S. Rep. Pete Stauber about his own visit in there in April.

Washington – The national immigration debate has turned the southern border into a popular destination for members of Congress, including several Minnesota lawmakers from both parties who report being shocked by what they saw.

"I'd seen the photos and read some accounts," said Rep. Dean Phillips, a Democrat. "I anticipated I'd see difficult conditions, but what I saw was almost indescribable. I couldn't believe that, in my own country, that people were being kept in the ways that I saw."
