The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has blocked Democratic staffers from the House Oversight Committee from vistiting border facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border after staff members were reportedly "disruptive" and did not follow instructions during their last visit, according to Fox News.

Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) sent his staff to visit facilities for what he called "oversight inspections" and had planned to send more staffers to view Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and border facilities. However, DHS has now denied access to border facilities for this upcoming visit, saying Cummings' staff behavior "interfered" with with law enforcement operations at the centers.
