Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) slammed the Biden administration's handling of the baby formula shortage as parents find empty shelves at the supermarket, ratcheting up rhetoric surrounding the issue.
Stefanik, the House Republican Conference chairwoman, the third-highest GOP leadership position, claimed top Democrats and "pedo grifters" are out of touch with struggling parents as formula is scarce while detention centers at the southern border appear to be stocked.
ABBOTT FACES BLOWBACK FOR DENOUNCING PROVISION OF INFANT FORMULA TO MIGRANTS
"The White House, House Dems, & usual pedo grifters are so out of touch with the American people that rather than present ANY PLAN or urgency to address the nationwide baby formula crisis, they double down on sending pallets of formula to the southern border," Stefanik tweeted Friday. "Joe Biden has NO PLAN."

Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) shared photos Thursday that appeared to show infant formula fully stocked at an immigration processing center on the Mexican border, sparking outrage among those concerned about accessing the staple. Cammack said a Border Patrol agent told her multiple pallets of formula had come to the facility Wednesday.
“It is not the children’s fault at all,” Cammack said. “But what is infuriating to me is that this is another example of the ‘America Last’ agenda the Biden administration continues to perpetuate.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that "ensuring migrants, including children and infants, in our custody have their basic needs met is in line with this Administration’s commitment to ensuring safe, orderly, and humane processes at our border."
