Amid the nationwide formula shortage that has parents desperate for alternatives, reports say pallets of this valuable product are being shipped to various processing facilities along the border for migrant families.
In a video posted to facebook, Representative Kat Cammack, R-Fla., claims she received photos of shelves stocked with the formula from border patrol agents. Cammack shared the photos in multiple posts on social media.
The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula.
The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce.

She goes on to say that the border crisis is “by design,” calling it a non-partisan issue. “It has never been more clear that this.. open border [policy].. pouring narcotics into our country.. is not by accident, it is not negligence.”
Response from officials amid the shortage have included a letter from House Republicans, who are calling on the Biden administration to address the issue, stating it is “a matter of life and death.”
When asked about plans to do so, incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed the administration is ensuring that infant formula is “safe and available” for families across the country.
