“What are they trying to hide?” asked Rep. Bridenstine, to what was promised to be the ‘most transparent administration in history.’

Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) was denied access yesterday to a federal facility in Oklahoma holding children who have been illegally shipped across the U.S. border.

“There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held.  Any Member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks,” Congressman Bridenstine said in a statement yesterday shortly following the incident.

Rep. Bridenstine, a veteran who is on the Armed Services Committee, explained to Greta Van Susteren on FOX News Wednesday night, that he has visited “all the facilities in our state as a member of the Armed Services Committee, but was blocked by the Obama regime from entering the HHS facility at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, which reportedly houses up to 1,200 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) who illegally crossed the southern border into the United States.
