MiamiHerald / The five state and local Democrats who wanted to assess conditions in the shelter were dismayed when they were told they needed to request a tour two weeks in advance.

U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Frederica Wilson, Ted Deutch and Darren Soto entered the facility around 1 p.m., along with their staffs. Behind them trailed state Sens. Annette Taddeo and Jos̩ Javier Rodriguez, state Rep. Kionne McGhee and Miami-Dade County Commissioners Barbara Jordan and Danielle Levine Cava Рall of whom were told they would not be allowed access Saturday.

Huddled under a white tent under under a gray, rainy afternoon sky, they told reporters they were frustrated they could not enter.
