Rep. Collin Peterson: Asylum Issue “Out of Control”

Peterson says we need to find out who is financing the caravans

FARGO, ND —┬áCongressman Collin Peterson says the asylum issue involving refugees on the U.S.-Mexico border is growing out of control.

During an interview on KFGO’s “News & Views,” the Minnesota Democrat called for a closer examination of a growing number of refugees traveling in caravans heading to the southern border.

Peterson says we need to find out who is financing the caravans.

He also says Congress needs to come up with a “new system” allowing people to enter the country and work without becoming citizens.

Peterson says many people who show up at the border are released because there isn’t enough money, judges or resources to deal with them.
