This is proof Biden doesn’t care about Americans.
Amid an ongoing shortage of baby formula, pallets are being sent to holding facilities at the border, according to Republican Rep. Kat Cammack of Florida.
In a video posted to Facebook on Wednesday (May 11), Cammack alleges, “They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border,” contrasting that with what is happening in the U.S., saying, “Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula.”
In pictures on social media, the Florida lawmaker shows empty formula shelves next to images of pallets of food that are being sent to the border. In her video, Cammack reveals a concerned border patrol agent sent her the image of the pallets of food.
She also alleged that the picture of the pallets of food came from the “Ursula processing facility” in Texas, where immigrants are being “housed and processed and then released.”
Cammack also states in the clip that the border patrol agent said to her she “would not believe the shipment I just brought in.”
Discussing the border patrol agent’s concern, Cammack reveals that “He has been a border patrol agent for 30 years and he has never seen anything quite like this,” adding that he is a grandfather that is seeing “his own children can’t get baby formula.”
Cammack’s claims follow a call by more than 100 House Republicans for President Joe Biden to do more to remedy the baby formula shortage.
In a letter the GOP lawmakers sent to Biden on Wednesday, they state, “This issue is a matter of life and death, and it is time this administration treats it with the appropriate urgency it deserves.”
Data released by Datasembly, a firm that tracks product recalls shows that the out-of-stock percentage for baby formula has increased to 43 percent, a 13-point increase since the beginning of April.
In a statement, Datasemnly CEO Ben Reich revealed, “This issue has been compounded by supply chain challenges, product recalls, and historic inflation,” adding that “The category started to see stocking challenges beginning in July 2021, and the situation has continued to worsen into 2022.”
