Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin grilled several Democrats and Biden officials on camera for a Fox News segment that aired Monday afternoon.

Many of the Democrats that Melugin questioned either ignored him altogether or refused to answer his questions.

The segment comes as the Biden administration’s policies on the southern border have led to national security and humanitarian catastrophe with more than 2.3 million illegal border crossings over the last 11 months, an all-time record, and more than 4 million total since Biden was inaugurated.

“250,000 unaccompanied migrant children arrived at the border since President Biden’s took office. Some of them trafficked, some of them drowning in the river. Any issue with that?” Melugin asked Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

Pressley completely ignored Melugin.

“Last question, ma’am. Is the border secure?” Melugin pressed. “Do you agree with the administration that the border is secure?”

Pressley refused to answer.

Melugin then asked Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, “Chairman, one question, in your opinion, is the border secure?”

“I have to go give a speech,” Thompson responded. “Did you hear me?”

“I heard you,” Melugin said. “It’s a quick question, is the border secure?”

Thompson refused to answer the question.

Melugin then pressed President Joe Biden’s (D) secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, about his thoughts.

“I’m Bill Melugin with Fox News. Do you have a few moments to talk about the border real quick?” Melugin asked.

“I’m sorry, I don’t,” Mayorkas snapped back.

Melugin showed an email that Fox News sent to Homeland Security last week requesting an interview because Melugin and his team were going to be in town. Melugin received no response from the Biden administration.

“A few moments of your time is all we’re asking for and we’ll let you go,” Melugin said. “We reached out to your office, asked to talk to you last week. They blew us off.”

“I appreciate it,” Mayorkas chided.

“Is 900,000 got-a-ways a secure border?” Melugin asked.

“Have a good day,” Mayorkas said. “Thank you.”

Melugin said that the only Democrats who would talk about the border were Democrats from the state of Texas, the state that has been hit the hardest by the crisis.

“This is unsustainable,” Rep. Veronica Escobar said. “It has been unsustainable for years.”

“This is our administration. I’m a Democrat. And you know, they need to understand they own it now,” Rep. Henry Cuellar told Melugin. “They own it now. And they have to take the steps to correct this otherwise, you know, when are we going to see an end to this?”
