Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik joined The Faulkner Focus to discuss the harrowing nationwide baby formula crisis due the the Biden Administration’s inaction and Biden’s record-breaking border crisis that has just reached new levels.

Watch the interview here.

Highlights from the interview include:

On House Republicans Leading to Fix Biden’s Baby Formula Shortage:

“I'm a new mom. I am the proud mom of my 9-month-old, Sam. He is formula fed. There is nothing more harrowing than a parent desperately trying to find the right formula to feed their babies and then finding shelves empty.”

“Yet again you have the President of the United States and Democrats attempting to pass the buck. They weren't paying any attention to this issue. They dismissed this issue with laughter just one week ago. They had no plan.” 

“It was Republicans, and I was proud to lead this, that in February, we demanded from the FDA accountability and a plan to address the supply issue when the decision was made to shut down the plant in Sturgis, Michigan.”

“Do you know how long it took for the FDA to respond? They didn’t respond to me until last week, mid-May, because I blasted them from the Capitol steps, that this was a crisis for families across the country.”

“Joe Biden was forced to change his schedule to get on the phone with formula manufacturers because House Republicans had a press conference on this. So, Democrats have been asleep at the switch.”

“Nancy Pelosi is again trying to point fingers but it's the FDA. She’s talking about criminal indictments on the manufacturing formula makers. I think this is going to be a huge government controversy, and there must be accountability on the failures of the FDA. This is Joe Biden's fault and their incompetence.”

On Biden’s Border Crisis: 

“They have no operational control over the border.”

“The American people are so frustrated with the absolute failure and dereliction of duty, not only of Secretary Mayorkas at the Department of Homeland Security, but of Joe Biden, the President of the United States, who has yet to ever visit the southern border in his entire career in public service, which is longer than I’ve been alive.”

“I've been to the border. I went a few weeks ago to Eagle Pass, Texas. This is a horrific humanitarian crisis. Our border is wide open, and it impacts every state and community across America.”

“I represent border patrol officers in northern New York, who are stationed on the U.S. - Canadian border, who have been transferred over and over and over again. Meanwhile, we see fentanyl flowing freely across our southern border into communities across the country, leading to fentanyl overdoses being the leading cause of death for adults 18 to 45.” 

“Mayorkas is not doing his job. The President is not doing his job.”
