Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) tweeted that if the reports are true, “it’s absolutely unacceptable.” Because, according to Blackburn, this has been happening “without any input or oversight from Tennesseans and the affected communities.”

In a comment to SaraACarter.com, Blackburn said this problem started because of failures at the executive level. “Biden’s actions and rhetoric have caused thousands of illegal aliens to flood our borders overwhelming our Border Patrol who have been able to apprehend just half a million of them,” Blackburn said.

She continued, “Now his administration is secretly transporting the migrants the Border Patrol did catch to communities throughout the United States. They are doing this in the dead of night without the knowledge or permission of the communities involved.”

Then, Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) also called for answers. “It’s time for Biden to be transparent with Tennesseans,” Hagerty tweeted.

“Joe Biden has put these children at risk. He is putting Tennesseans at risk,” Blackburn said. “The American people deserve the truth now.”
