Secretary Of Homeland Security Claimed Borders Are 'Secure', Crenshaw Determined That's A Lie
Congressman Dan Crenshaw blasted the Biden administration Wednesday on Fox News after the Secretary of Homeland Security bizarrely claimed the US-Mexico border is “secure.” Despite the growing complaints from US residents and even the illegals immigrants being held at the border. Conditions are deplorable for the children, with the kids themselves reporting that they are going without food, showers, and property sleeping arrangements.
So it seems really strange that the Secretary of Homeland Security would claim that everything is fine, basically. Texas Republican Dan Crenshaw bluntly calls the bluff:
“They’re lying,” Crenshaw said of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’s false assertion that the southern border was secure. “We have an unprecedented crisis. Look, in the past month, we’re looking at about 100,000 people crossing per month.”
“We are keeping our borders secure, enforcing our laws, and staying true to our values and principles,” the DHS boss said earlier this week.
“That adds up to $30 million in the drug cartel’s pockets when you calculate how much it costs for one person to go across. The Biden administration is literally funding the Mexican drug cartels,” Crenshaw said. “Do you know what they call this? They call this compassion, they call this a humane border policy. But there is nothing humane or compassionate about funding drug cartels.”
The Texas Republican also argued that the situation is unfair to those who have tried to enter the country legally.
“There is nothing compassionate about incentivizing people to throw kids across the border to engage in human smuggling, and there is nothing compassionate about cutting in front of millions of people around the world who are trying to use our system legally, get a Visa here, claim asylum here, because they actually have a valid claim to asylum,” Crenshaw said. “But instead, we’re allowing people of a geographical advantage to take advantage of the system and clog it up. And it’s not moral. It’s not fair to legal immigrants, and it’s certainly not compassionate, and it must stop.”

The reality at the southern border is that the Biden administration inherited a nearly perfect system and destroyed it out of their hatred for President Trump. It was sheer incompetence that put us on the current path with some 3,000 minors packed into small immigration facilities. They did not plan ahead and these are the results.
We're not back at square one with Obama-era immigration problems. It's worse than that. If the current rate continues, we will eventually hit pre-9/11 security issues. Meanwhile, this administration is busy playing the blame game to come up with a real plan of action. They've enlisted the help of FEMA, for God's sake. The disaster relief agency. What does that tell you?
It's a disaster...
