Liberals are criticizing the Biden administration’s handling of the influx of illegal migrants along the U.S.-Mexico southern border.
Yamiche Alcindor appeared on Meet the Press over the weekend to discuss what’s happening on the southern border, saying, “the numbers don’t lie.”
“You have a White House that wants to say there’s not a crisis at the border, but the numbers don’t lie”

The Hill reports a Democrat state senator from Texas sees first hand just how bad the crisis is on the southern border.
Texas state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, a Democrat who lives in the border town of McAllen, told The Hill the influx of migrants is fast becoming a crisis and that officials there do not have the resources they need to process the migrants or to test them all for COVID-19.
Democrat Texas Representative Henry Cuellar expressed concern about the number of illegal aliens released in Texas, saying, federal officials “are purposely withholding that information.”

Breitbart issued an exclusive news report about the border crisis whereby border officials were essentially banned by the White House from discussing details.
A senior-level law enforcement source in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told Breitbart Texas they received verbal orders from within the agency limiting their ability to speak freely about the growing crisis along the border.
While President Biden refuses to call it a crisis, Reuters is reporting, “U.S. border agents detained nearly 100,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in February,” and it is the largest influx of illegal migrants since 2019.
Southern border states are taking matters into their own hands to protect citizens.
Texas Republican Governor Gregg Abbott is sending National Guard troops to the southern border to protect the state from a surge of migrants seeking to enter the U.S. illegally.
Abbott announced the launch of Operation Lone Star in a press release on Saturday to address the crisis at the Texas-Mexico border.
The governor’s decision followed a meeting with Colonel Steve McCraw, Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), “on safety and securing threats,” on the state’s border with Mexico as a result of the surge of illegal migrants.
In the press release, Abbott blamed President Biden for renewing the “catch and release” policy.
Today Texas launched Operation Lone Star to respond to the border crisis.
It deploys Nat'l Guard + DPS Officers + air, ground, marine, & tactical border security assets to deny Mexican Cartels & smugglers the ability to move drugs & people into Texas.https://t.co/r68J2laDpH

Because of Pres. Biden's policies, the US is facing a worsening immigration crisis.
As many as 4K migrants are crossing the border per day.
Obama’s DHS Sec.—Jeh Johnson—said 1K
entries per day overwhelms the system.
But the Biden Admin still refuses to acknowledge the crisis.

In addition, over 100 migrants who entered the U.S. illegally tested positive for COVID-19 but they were released and allowed to travel freely.
Clearly, the surge of illegal migrants represents a health risk to the U.S.
President Biden is causing a humanitarian and health crisis at the southern border which will endanger the lives of both migrants and U.S. citizens.
The developing border crisis is getting too big even for Democrats to ignore and will take a larger number of liberals and Democrats to force President Biden to make a change.
