(CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is set to lead a group of fellow Republican lawmakers to the southern border in Texas on Monday, amid debate over the Biden administration's decision to end a Trump-era pandemic restriction on the US-Mexico border.

McCarthy's office said in a press release Saturday morning that the California Republican will be joined in Eagle Pass, Texas, by nine lawmakers, including two other members of House GOP leadership -- Conference Chair Elise Stefanik and Policy Committee Chairman Gary Palmer.
Others expected to make the trip include Reps. Tony Gonzales, Randy Weber, Michael Guest and Chip Roy, all of Texas; Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia; Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee and Blake Moore of Utah. Greene is coming off an unprecedented hearing in Atlanta on Friday in which she testified under oath for three hours in a case that focused on whether she is constitutionally barred from holding office because of her role in the January 6, 2021, insurrection at the US Capitol.
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene testifies for more than 3 hours in hearing about whether to disqualify her from seeking reelectionMonday's trip will be McCarthy's second to the border this Congress, the first being a trip to El Paso, Texas, in March 2021.
      The Biden administration is set to repeal next month the measure known as Title 42, which allows border authorities to turn migrants back to Mexico or their home countries because of the public health crisis caused by Covid-19. It was first invoked by then-President Donald Trump to criticism by immigrant advocates and public health experts and then initially kept in place by the Biden administration.Read More"House Republicans stand with our brave Border Patrol agents on the front lines of this crisis, and we demand that the Biden administration reverse their decision to end Title 42 and fully enforce the immigration and border security laws of our nation," McCarthy's office said Saturday.GOP lawmakers running for reelection this fall are using the repeal of Title 42 as a talking point to attack Democrats on immigration.
        Several vulnerable Democrats have joined Republicans in slamming the decision to roll back the border measure next month, arguing that President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas do not have enough time to establish an adequate plan to deal with the expected surge of migrants expected on the US-Mexico border once Title 42 is rescinded. Swing-state Democrats turn on Biden over Title 42 border decisionMayorkas told CNN this week his department is actively preparing for the potential increase in migrants, saying, "I think we have to be very mindful of the fact that we are addressing enemies, and those enemies are the cartels and the smugglers, and I will not provide our plans to them."US Customs and Border Protection had 221,303 encounters at the US-Mexico border in March, which marked yet another jump in arrests along the southern border. CBP has already apprehended more than 1 million people this fiscal year, which began on October 1. That includes some repeat crossers.
          McCarthy himself is facing criticism after new audio recordings revealed contradictory statements he made about former President Donald Trump. In the audio clips, the California Republican is heard telling other GOP leaders in the days following the January 6 insurrection that he planned to advise Trump to resign, among other things.McCarthy broke his silence Friday for the first time since the recordings leaked and defended his comments to reporters, saying he had just been walking through potential scenarios about Trump's fate after the insurrection and hadn't been advocating any of them.

          Trump Launches New Super PAC That Will Spend Millions Backing Midterm Candidates

          by Jack McEvoy

           

          Former President Donald Trump’s close advisers are launching MAGA Inc., a new independent political action committee (PAC) that will spend millions to fund Trump-backed candidates ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, Politico reported Friday.

          MAGA Inc. will invest large sums of money into key November midterm races to help elect Republican House and Senate candidates that the former president is supporting, such as Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert and Ohio Senate hopeful J.D. Vance, Politico reported, citing people close to Trump. The PAC can spend an unlimited amount of funds and could substantially ramp up GOP efforts to win back both the House and Senate as Republicans have been outspent by Democrats in important races across the nation.

          “President Trump is committed to saving America, and Make America Great Again, Inc. will ensure that is achieved at the ballot box in November and beyond,” Taylor Budowich, a Trump spokesperson, told Politico.

          Although Trump has endorsed over 200 candidates, his current super PAC, MAGA Again!, has spent very little of its over $100 million in funding and has had little impact in midterm races so far, the outlet reported. Super PACs like MAGA Inc. may raise unlimited sums of money from corporations and individuals but are not permitted to contribute to or coordinate directly with parties or candidates, according to the Federal Election Committee.

          MAGA Inc., to be managed by Budowich, will likely merge with MAGA Again! which could transfer its funds to the new committee. Trump remains the Republican Party’s biggest fundraiser and has been able to pull vast amounts of both small and large donations, according to Fox News.

          The committee could also be used to provide a framework for Trump’s potential 2024 bid for the presidency, according to Politico. Although Trump has hinted that he might run for president again, he is still deciding whether to announce his campaign before or after the midterms, the outlet reported.

          A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
