Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Republican leader Sam Graves (R-MO) raised questions about the diversion of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) resources, workforce, and expertise to deal with illegal immigration and the Biden Administration’s crisis at the southern border.

In this letter to FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell, Graves noted his concerns that “FEMA – the Federal government’s lead emergency management agency – is being tasked to support functions outside its core mission while the Nation is also dealing with a record number of disasters.”
