McALLEN, Texas (WDBJ) - Virginia congressmen Bob Good and Ben Cline were part of delegation that visited the southern U.S. border this week.

The Representatives from Virginia’s 5th and 6th congressional districts made the trip with other Republicans on the House Budget Committee.

They traveled to McAllen, Texas, where they visited U.S. Border Patrol facilities and a section of the border wall.

“Hey, I’m here at the Donna Processing Facility, close to McAllen,” Cline said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “This is where the unaccompanied minors and the families come to be processed, and it’s a tragic scene.”

Cline said he wanted to hear directly from U.S. Customs personnel on the policies and resources needed to secure the border.

He was on his way back to western Virginia Thursday afternoon.
