Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan on Thursday night wrote a letter to House Committee on Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings asking that four Republicans from border states be allowed to testify in a hearing with only Democrats about the crisis at the border.

Jordan, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, wrote a letter to Cummings saying he learned for the first time that Cummings had invited four Democratic members, who include three members of the committee, to testify about the crisis at the border. Jordan asked Cummings to be fair and include four Republicans to testify and add their perspective.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Democratic members Cummings invited include Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez,  Massachusets Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.

“Cummings has repeatedly promised fair and legitimate oversight. If he doesn’t allow Republican members to testify at tomorrow’s border hearing, it will just show that he is more focused on scoring political points than solving the humanitarian crisis at the southern border,” Jordan wrote in the letter. “Therefore, for fairness and to ensure a balanced presentation tomorrow, we respectfully request that you invite the following Republican Members to testify about the unprecedented humanitarian and security crisis at the southern border.”
