Nineteen Republican senators are heading to the US southern border in Texas, amid the flood of illegal immigrants and asylum-seekers.
That's three quarters of Senate Republicans.
According to the senators, the Biden Administration will not allow press access to border facilities during the trip.
The Senators plan to take a boat tour provided by state officials on Friday, and will hold a press availability afterwards.
