‘With all due respect to the administration, they need to put a pause on this now for the sake of the border communities.’
Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar represents a Texas district that lies directly on the southern U.S. border.
Cuellar spoke to Fox Business Network’s Charles Payne on Wednesday to make a desperate plea to President Joe Biden.
He explained that Immigration and Customs Enforcement, in conjunction with Customs and Border Protection, drops off immigrants at a local charity. When that charity becomes overwhelmed by sheer numbers, however, the next stop is a local hotel. CBP reportedly does not bother to notify local officials that the migrants have been discharged in their city or town. Cuellar said CBP doesn’t even tell them if these individuals are sick — which many undoubtedly are.
