Dem Rep. says border crisis is out of control

Despite mounting evidence of deteriorating conditions at the southern border amid a record-setting influx of migrants, President Joe Biden said last week that his administration has “gotten control” of the situation, but that claim has since attracted significant pushback from a prominent member of his own party.

As Breitbart reports, Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar said bluntly in a podcast released on Thursday that “the border is not under control” and accused the Biden administration of attempting to disguise the truth of the situation by moving unaccompanied youth “from one tent to another tent.”

Cuellar’s comments came during an interview on the Fox News Rundown program, and the congressman brought starting candor to his criticism of the administration’s response to the escalating disaster, explaining:

So basically, when they’re saying that the border’s under control, I mean, I think down in the valley, which I represent part of that, getting 2,000 to 2,500 people a day, 15% of it being unaccompanied kids and then maybe 36, 37% family unites, and then 49% or so single adults with those large numbers, I would say that, with all due respect, the border is not under control.

Blasting the administration’s recent attempts to re-frame the situation in a more favorable light, Cuellar said, “Now, I will say they’re doing a better job moving the unaccompanied kids from one tent to another tent. What do I mean by that? Well, as you know, the focus was on the Border Patrol Donna center, the tent that they had there,” adding:

What the administration has done now is just set up some tents next door and they’re run by [Health and Human Services]. So they just move the kids from one tent to another tent, from the Border Patrol tend to the HHS tent and say, oh, we’re handling better.

Perhaps even more surprising than Cuellar’s damning assessment of the administration’s handling of its detention facilities are his thoughts about what policy decisions led to the crisis in the first place, even suggesting that some of former President Donald Trump’s immigration initiatives should have been retained by Biden.

“To say that the whole system was broken down, I would disagree. I mean, I disagreed with some of the policies that President Trump had like separating the kids from their families,” Cuellar said, but he also added, “The MPP, the Migrant Protection Protocols Program, I think that one, instead of just getting rid of that, I think we should have repurposed that.”

In an apparent critique of the administration’s push to focus on fashiong new diplomatic agreements to address mass migration’s “root causes,” Cuellar continued, “…even the agreements we had with Central America and Mexico that got taken away and now they’re trying to do something else, trying to reach some sort of agreement. We should not have gotten rid of those agreements. We should have repurposed those agreements.”

This is not the first time Rep. Cuellar has put a spotlight on the chaos resulting from Biden’s open-borders stance, as back in March, he released shocking photos of the conditions inside a Texas detention facility that drew widespread attention to the unfolding humanitarian tragedy.

President Biden seems to believe he can continue to deflect and dodge the need for real solutions to the nation’s immigration crisis, but it is heartening to know that there as at least one high-profile Democrat who is willing to hold his feet to the fire.

If your system is so successful and people make so much money..why do you have to use comment sections to do your advertising? Are you just too cheap to use regular advertising methods, or yourplan just doesn’t make you rich as you advertise? I’ll bet the latter is true. Or is this just totally a scam?

The Trump administration had the border situation well under control until Biden came along and made his stupid invitation. No the border is nothing but chaos, and Biden is trying to blame his screw up in Trump. Even Kamel-Toe refused to go down to the border, because it is a no win situation. Bring back Trump, he will fix Biden’s screw up

Bidens administration is totally corrupt and incompetent. Personally I believe they want this chaotic border to get back at 50 percent of American who voted for Trump’s securing the border
He’s such a pissy Limp wristed obama type. Bidens biggest problem is he’s old, decrepit and a full on reprobate individual.

Biden and his army of commies are getting their way with the help of mainstream media. We need to hold mainstream media accountable to tell the truth. Our fellow Americans are suffering from Biden’s idiotic policies.

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?



HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

Democrats want to legalize anarchy and ban law and order.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Is Nancy still hot for an impeachment? She should be, the Biden Administration is collapsing and she now has a real candidate for being yanked out of office.
In fact, she has a whole bunch that should not only be impeached but tried for treason. By the way, could she indict herself, or will someone else have to do it to make it legal, Not that legal means anything to her, even if just for appearance’s sake,

Democrat’s lieing all the way letting in more illegals and criminals . Who does Joe think he is fooling? They have caused more problems with his little pen than even Obama with his. We as a nation need to refuse to pay for their mistake, costing millions to pay their way . How about the DNC paying for all the free stuff Joe is giving the Illegals.

The whole Biden administration is nothing but a lie. It’s a do nothing chaos organization. They keep saying that they aren’t like previous presidents by taking children from their parents. Hell their parents sold them to the cartels they came across the border with no parents . So no body previously ripped any children from their parents . These parents don’t give chit about these kids

More and more chaos and disruption of true Americans. BLM, antifa and racist accusations to divide the country’s values is in step with the perfect Marxist theories for government takeover. It fits perfectly with the AntiChrist Biden and Satanist lust for complete power over all Americans. Satanism is the latest religion of the democrats.
