Fox News captured dramatic live video of migrants, including young children, crossing the Rio Grande in Del Rio, Texas

, on Monday as a surge of border crossings continues to cause problems for the Biden administration.
“You see the steady stream of people coming across the border with Mexico entering our nation without going through a legal checkpoint, without any of those things. You don’t see them being COVID tested right there, right?” narrated anchor Harris Faulkner of “The Faulkner Focus.”
“Just moments ago there appeared to be an elderly gentleman they were helping out of the river. Some have camping gear so they can spend the night and do what they need to do. This is a heavy stream of people. A lot of children in the group that we are seeing now, too. Women and children in this group. Looks like that woman is praying as she comes across,” Faulkner continued. “We have seen instances where our Border Patrol have had to get engaged to save people. That water is moving.”

Migrants hoisted young children above the current that was sometimes knee-deep for adults. During the mornings when the river is low, smugglers start sending groups across the Rio Grande. They come clutching babies and backpacks and slowly make their way across the river on foot, stepping from one small island to another. 

All of the migrants in the group of roughly 50 people told Fox News that they were from Venezuela. About half of them said they have family in the U.S.

Local Border Patrol has been overwhelmed with more than 5,000 apprehensions in the last week.

Meanwhile, White House press secretary Jen Psaki recently blamed the “nature” of the media for being a “big driver” behind the push to say there’s a border “crisis.” 

“But really a big driver was we understand and know the nature of some components of social media and media these days and we just didn’t want to feed into that on this issue or really any issue,” she said in a podcast interview.

“We’ve seen surges at the border,” Psaki said. “Every time it happens it’s bad.”

Border Crisis

56 House Republicans demand Kamala Harris be removed from border crisis role

Dozens of House Republicans are demanding President Biden remove Vice President Harris from her leading role handling the US migrant crisis, citing her “inaction” on the issue.

“Despite being in the midst of a border crisis this country has not seen in two decades, Vice President Harris has not yet shown adequate interest in observing this crisis first-hand,” wrote Wisconsin Republican Glenn Grothman in a letter President Biden signed by 56 House lawmakers.
“In the 85 days since the Vice President has been tasked with solving this crisis, she has yet to visit the border and meet with Border Patrol agents, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials and local law enforcement officials,” the letter continued.
Torrents of illegal migrants flooding the US-Mexico border have created one of the earliest and most pressing challenges of Biden’s presidency and Harris has been tapped with solving the problem.
She recently traveled to Mexico and Guatemala where she took heat from progressives for bluntly telling would-be migrants there not to come to the United States. The White House has tried to pivot and has stressed that Harris’ role is primarily diplomatic.
A major sticking point has been Harris’ refusal (so far) to visit the US border herself. When pressed on the issue she has punted

Border Crisis

Texas to Build Its Own Border Barriers, Says Governor

Published

Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Breitbart Texas the State will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico. The barriers will, in part, enable state law enforcement to arrest migrants for violations of state law.
Abbott said Texas will immediately begin construction of border barriers in areas like Del Rio where migrants can easily cross unsecured sections. The governor picked Del Rio as the location for his  announcement due to the massive increases in illegal border crossings in this region. Del Rio Sector agents apprehended 27,890 migrants — a 1,118 percent increase over the May 2020 report of 2,289, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday.

“The influx across the border is out of control, and the Biden Administration has shown that is not going to step up and do its job,” Governor Abbott told Breitbart Texas shortly before the public announcement on Thursday. “And amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”
“The reason why we are here (Del Rio) is because of the massive increase,” the governor stated. Border crossings used to be highly “concentrated in the Rio Grande Valley,” he explained. “Now, you know we’re upstream from the Rio Grande Valley in the Del Rio Sector and the Del Rio sector is suffering from some of the largest increases.”
He said they are hearing from local residents and elected and law enforcement officials that they are seeing things they have never seen before.

“They’re seeing a lot of very bad dangerous people come across the border,” Abbott continued. “People that they are afraid of encountering, people who are causing damage to their fences, their livestock, their crops, their neighborhoods, and their homes.”
“Bad things are happening around here, and so they need help from the state to help them address this exploding crisis.”
The governor said authorities will use existing authorities under a State of Emergency declaration to crack down on those illegally crossing the border.
“What people have seen in videos across the country seems to be the Biden Administration welcoming these people to the United States,” Abbott stated. “We won’t be sending that message.”
Instead, the governor said, “If you come to Texas, you’re subject to being arrested. You’re not going to have a pathway to roam the country. You’re going to have a pathway directly into a jail cell.”

“We want to be very aggressive in working with local officials and begin making mass arrests,” Abbott stated. “In working in collaboration with a large number of counties — that means we’re going to be arresting a lot more people.”
The governor said this will create the need across the state for a lot more jails.
The governor explained that the barriers serve two functions in the battle against illegal border crossings. The first being physical deterrence. The second, “If they [migrants] move or interfere with that barrier, they have committed several crimes.”
Those crimes include criminal mischief, vandalism of state property or local government property, and criminal trespass.
In addition, the recent declaration of a State of Emergency by the State of Texas causes the penalties for these crimes to increase by one level.
“That means up to 180 days in jail,” Abbott continued. “Something that may be a Class B misdemeanor right now, turned into a class A misdemeanor. And so they can get into a lot of trouble.”
“There’s even potential for state jail felonies for some of these crimes,” he explained. “So they can wind up in jail for a long time.”
Abbott said they have identified more than 1,000 jail cells that can be used to hold arrested migrants. They will begin actively working with local and state officials to identify more space. He said they may consider building additional jail space in the form of soft-sided facilities.
To help facilitate this effort, Governor Abbott teamed up with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to call on fellow governors across the nation to provide assistance in the ongoing border crisis.
“With your help, we can apprehend more of these perpetrators of state and federal crimes before they can cause problems in your state,” the two governors advised. “Texas and Arizona have stepped up to secure the border in the federal government’s absence, and now, the Emergency Management Assistance Compact gives your State a chance to stand strong with us.”
Abbott said he anticipates a “high level of participation.”
“I’ll tell you why,” he continued. “The immigration issue and the border issue is not just the number one issue of Texas, it’s the number one issue in America. And so all of these other governors, they hear the same concerns that we hear about in Texas.”
Abbott concluded the one-on-one interview, saying, “Texas already has done more than any other state to secure the border, but we know that more has to be done. And we’re stepping up to undertake an unprecedented response to the border crisis caused by the federal government.”
“In the end, only the federal government and Congress can fix this, but as it stands right now, the state of Texas is going to step up and we’re going to start making arrests — sending a message to anybody thinking about coming here,  you’re not going to get a free pass to the U.S. They’re getting a straight pass to a jail cell.”

Sky News host Paul Murray says unbelievably, mainstream press “asked a slightly difficult question” of the Biden-Harris administration. “The evil orange man was right when it came to the difference between legal and illegal immigration,” he said. “When their guy and gal got into the White House, guess what they say? There’s a difference between legal and illegal immigration.”
