Amid the current supply chain crisis plaguing the country, baby formula has become one of the latest products to go scarce as a result of the current inflation. This week US Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) put full pressure on the Biden Administrations' apparent prioritization of illegal immigrants over Americans in regards to the baby formula shortage.
After Rep. Cammack broke the baby formula shortage news by posting images of government detention center shelves filled with baby formula alongside an image of a baby formula grocery store shelf empty, CNN began to target her for posting the images and her criticism of the administration.
The congresswoman posted her personal thoughts on Twitter and outed the Biden Administration in the process. Cammack claims to have received text messages from border patrol agents claiming, "They sent me pictures and videos of stocked warehouses and pallets of baby formula."
Earlier this week, I received text messages from several border agents. They sent me pictures and videos of stocked warehouses and pallets of baby formula. Many of these agents have families, and they know firsthand how hard it is to get baby formula in American stores. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/MRvuKbsEd8

The Floridian spoke with Kat Cammack today where she gave her response to the major headlines asserting she wants to, "let immigrant babies starve."
These comments came after House Republicans raised awareness for the shortage of baby formula, which went down in stock by 40% late last month.
"Facts are clearly inconvenient for the Left. The irony is the crisis they’re mad about is one of their own creation. Clearly, we’ve hit a nerve when the liberal media comes out in full force to defend the Biden administration. Suddenly they care about children at the border even though they have never bothered to visit," said Cammack in a statement to The Floridian.
The congresswoman's remarks effectively gave Americans the idea that baby formula is not somehow a hot market item but is being re-routed to illegal immigrants.
