Bill introduced allowing Congress to inspect immigration prisons

Members of Congress have been prevented from entering facilities housing immigrants, including children. Others have been required to give 48 hours notice to attempt to enter a facility.
What about a law that says, a Member of Congress may not be prevented from entering any detention facility for the purpose of conducting oversight. Or how about, a Member of Congress, shall not be required to provide notice of intent to enter a detention facility for the purpose of conducting oversight. How about H. R. 3868, a bill introduced by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others. The words above come directly from the bill. You can check to see if your member of congress is a co-sponsor of the bill by calling 202-224-3121 and ask for your Member of Congress’ office.
You might be very surprised how many Congress members are NOT co-sponsors.
