Texas Rep. Chip Roy said Saturday on Fox & Friends that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should stop ignoring what's happening at the southern border.

Roy (R) recently visited the border in McAllen with fellow freshman Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R) and said that he saw hundreds of migrants while he was there.

He said that what he saw at the border was shocking, likening the flow of migrants to a "daily caravan."

"It's unconscionable that we as a nation, the most powerful nation the world has ever known, are allowing this to happen in our backyard," he said.

Roy said that drug cartels along the Rio Grande Valley sector have an abundance of operational control at the border.

He said that Pelosi (D-Calif.) is "embarrassing herself" by ignoring what's going on at the southern border and saying she won't fund a wall there.

"Frankly, this is all political posturing," he said.

He also said that it's "insane" to believe that having a physical wall or barrier wouldn't help in protecting the U.S. border.

"The idea the fencing doesn't work is completely silly and the Border Patrol knows it and they're begging us, literally begging us, to come down and give them the resources they need," he said.
