Texas Democrat says Biden Admin needs to stop more illegal immigrants at the border

Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar said the Biden administration needs to turn away more people at the southern border to help stop the crisis of illegal immigrants entering the nation.

Cuellar shared the concerns during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

“First of all, we need solutions and not theater. By sending folks off to New York and Chicago, it does bring attention, but we want to focus more on solutions on the border,” he said.

“We got to give Border Patrol, we got to give ICE, Homeland Security the equipment- you know, making sure they have everything where they can enforce the law, because if we don’t have repercussions at the border, we’re going to continue getting 8,000 people a day,” Cuellar added.

Republicans have been making the plea for some time, but Cuellar is one of the only leaders on the left to speak out on behalf of securing the border.

The need is great, but the Biden administration has still yet to act to slow the crisis.
