Most of us can't fathom what the leaders and citizens of southern border towns are experiencing as President Joe Biden's administration lets illegal aliens pour across the border and wreak havoc on the local population.
According to Breitbart, the situation is only worsening, and Maverick County, TX Sheriff Tom Schmerber just revealed that his county has received absolutely zero support from the current White House administration, going on to say that he doesn't believe the federal government is helping anyone in the area.
The desperate sheriff told Breitbart that it feels truly as if the "borders are open," adding that it feels like there's "no control" over anyone coming across illegally.
"We're out of control. Even though we have the National Guard, and I know the Border Patrol — I'm not blaming the Border Patrol. They're working hard… they're working very hard and they catch a group, they have to transport them and do all this processing. So, it's like there's no control. The borders are open," Schmerber said.

The sheriff went on to emphasize that he believes the only effective way to begin tackling the problem is to have a "zero tolerance" rule at the border, which he explains means essentially instant deportation. He said that would begin deterring others.
"Catch them and deport them right away, and it would stop the problem. That's not happening right now. So, the solution for me would be something like that, zero tolerance," he said.
The border sheriff went on to say that he believes illegals seeking "asylum" should go through U.S. embassies.
"And immigrants that want to come over here that have some kind of problems in their country, well, we have embassies. Maybe they can apply at their embassies in other countries."
