Rep. Jim Bridenstine Wants “Unfettered Access” To Fort Sill Facility Holding Minors

Rep. Jim Bridenstine Wants “Unfettered Access” To Fort Sill Facility Holding Minors

Now HHS has offered a "tour" of the unaccompanied alien children facility at Ft. Sill. These are the rules:

1. No pictures.
3. No questions.
2. No talking to the staff.
3. No talking to the children.
4. If you want pictures, HHS will provide them.

Rep. Jim Bridenstine said Monday that he wants “unfettered access” to the Fort Sill facility housing unaccompanied alien children, and he criticized the media tour scheduled for Thursday at the U.S. Army post in southwestern Oklahoma.

Bridenstine, R-Tulsa, who was denied access to the facility when he arrived last week without an appointment, has been offered a tour on Saturday. He sent a letter to an official with the Department of Health and Human Services saying he’d accept the tour but that he planned to make recurring visits.

He wrote in his letter, to Sonja Nesbitt, a deputy assistant secretary, that it was “unacceptable that a representative of the people be limited to pre-planned, showcase visits to a facility so critical to the well-being of children. Just as foster parents in the State of Oklahoma are subject to unannounced visits by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, federal representatives of the people should be able to access UAC facilities at times of their choosing.”

In an interview, Bridenstine said he wasn’t seeking a confrontation at the Fort Sill facility, but he insisted that he be allowed to see what is happening.

“If they want a confrontation, they can create one,” he said.

Fort Sill is one of three U.S. military bases being used for temporary housing as unaccompanied minors from central America stream across the border in ever-increasing numbers.

What we have here in one branch of government restricting the access of another co-equal branch of government.

Face it folks. We're no longer a Constitutional Republic.
