The eyes of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are upon Texas border facilities, the senator declared in a video Friday after he landed in the state on a mission to make “everyone understand” they’re being watched:

“We’ve just arrived in Texas. We’re going to inspect a whole bunch of border facilities.

“We want to see what’s going on, and we know that the fact that we’ve come down here makes everyone understand there are eyes upon them – eyes who want to see the children and families treated in a decent way.”

“The conditions at the border for children and families have been inhumane,” Sen. Schumer declared in his tweet made prior to inspecting the facilities and introducing the video:

“We just landed in Texas. The conditions at the border for children and families have been inhumane. And I’m leading a delegation of @SenateDems to investigate, inspect, and evaluate conditions for migrants at facilities on the southern border.”
