Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) criticized Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday for visiting the Southern border 800 miles from the crisis region of illegal immigrant crossings.

Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, told Fox News he is sure Harris’ “planners” told her it is “politically safer” to go down to El Paso rather than where the crisis is raging in the southern part of the state.

“I’m sure her planners told her that if you’re going to go down to the border, go somewhere that’s safer to go to, that is, politically safer,” Cuellar said. “The epicenter is down there in the Lower Rio Grande, the lower part of my district down there. If you look at the numbers that are down there compared to El Paso, you’re not going to get a true picture of what’s happening.”

Cuellar also revealed that his Border Patrol friends asked him why Harris was inspecting an area so far from the crisis region.
“Yesterday, I got a call from one of my Border Patrol friends and say, ‘Hey, why is she going over there? We got about 140% higher crossings over here, and this is where the activity’s at.’ And I couldn’t answer him,” Cuellar said.
“Even if she goes to El Paso, which is a first step, she’s got to spend time with landowners, with stakeholders, with cities and counties officials,” Cuellar continued. “And I hope she sits down with our brave men and women in green, and in blue, our Border Patrol agents, so they don’t just get a pat in the back, but they actually get some reinforcement and some support down there.”
According to the Washington Examiner, “The Border Patrol divides the 1,950-mile border into nine regions.” A nearly 700 percent spike in illegal immigrant crossings has occurred since May of 2020.
To combat the surge, Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) have asked states send help to protect the border, a responsibility of the federal government via the United States Constitution.
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) answered Ducey and Abbott’s call on Friday and will permit Floridian tax payer funded law enforcement to assist Texas and Arizona’s law enforcement.

Hans von Spakovsky: Biden’s border crisis – crime problem in Texas a bad omen for rest of US

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., discusses worsening illegal immigration and Coca-Cola’s refusal to condemn treatment of Uyghurs in China

Supporters of illegal immigration like to portray all of the aliens now flooding across the southern border as benign individuals simply seeking a better life. Many no doubt are, but the latest report from the Texas Department of Public Safety shows just how dangerous some of them are.

That report outlines more than 573,000 criminal offenses committed by illegal aliens “over the course of their entire Texas criminal careers.” And that’s surely just the tip of the iceberg, as the report only covers state offenses, not federal crimes, not crimes committed in other states, and not crimes committed by aliens in the country legally.

But what a shocking catalogue of victimization of Texas residents it is. 

HANS VON SPAKOVSKY: TEXAS DEMOCRATS’ OUTRAGEOUS CLAIMS ABOUT ELECTION REFORMS HAVE NO CONNECTION TO REALITY

placeholder

The report by the famous Texas Rangers shows that over 344,000 criminal aliens were booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011, and June 30, 2021, of which over 235,000 were classified as illegal aliens. The criminal offenses with which they were charged included:

*1,245 homicides
*66,924 assaults
*17,456 burglaries
*72,835 drug charges
*980 kidnappings
*33,335 thefts
*4,155 robberies
*7.076 sexual assaults
*8,332 sexual offenses
*49,408 obstructing police charges
*8,317 weapons charges

Keep in mind, as the Texas report says, that these figures “represent the minimum number of crimes associated with criminal illegal aliens” (emphasis added). Why? Because Texas is counting as illegal aliens only those who “previously had an encounter” with the Department of Homeland Security that “resulted in their fingerprints being entered into the DHS IDENT database.” 

Except in a relatively small number of cases, aliens who enter the country illegally but “avoid detection by DHS” are not going to be identified as being in the country illegally when they are arrested for committing a crime in Texas.

There are two important points here. First, given the huge number of illegal aliens getting into the country without detection, the number of crimes committed by these aliens in Texas (and other states) is probably much higher than these already-unacceptable numbers.

Second, why were these 235,000 illegal aliens – who were identified because they had been previously detained by DHS – still in Texas, still present in this country, and thus able to commit their crimes? This is the consequence of the “catch and release” policy favored by liberal administrations, including the Biden administration, which the Trump administration tried to end.

The bottom line here is that, using just one of the appalling numbers highlighted by the Texas report, there are 1,245 Texans who would likely still be alive today if we were securing our border and vigorously enforcing our immigration laws by quickly and effectively deporting aliens whose first act is to enter the country illegally, and whose second act is to assault, kidnap, rob and murder our citizens.

As the Texas Department of Public Safety starkly says, this report, “identifies thousands of crimes that should not have occurred and thousands of victims that should not have been victimized because the perpetrator should not be here.” 

No truer words have been spoken about the illegal alien problem and the reckless open-border policy of the Biden administration.

Cruz: DHS blocking Cuban refugees from entering U.S. because they ‘tend to vote Republican’

Cruz: DHS blocking Cuban refugees from entering U.S. because they ‘tend to vote Republican’

The Biden administration is “being utterly shameless,” Cruz said. “We’re on a path to have over 2 million people crossing our southern border illegally this year

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for saying that Cubans who come to the U.S. by sea will be turned away as his department releases thousands of illegal migrants, stopped at the southern border, into U.S. communities.

According to a report on Tuesday, border patrol has released about 50,000 illegal immigrants without a date to appear in court, and only 13% of them have reported to an ICE office. In the past, migrants eligible for release into the U.S. after being caught at the border were assigned court dates.
Former President Donald Trump reached an agreement with Mexico that required migrants awaiting their court hearings to remain in Mexico instead of the U.S. The Biden administration terminated that agreement.

Cruz was asked for his response to Mayorkas saying Cubans won’t be allowed into the U.S. by sea after protests broke out in Cuba, which is ruled by a communist regime. 
“I think it reeks of hypocrisy,” Cruz told Just the News at a rally for freedom in Cuba held on Capitol Hill. “This is an administration that has presided over an absolute catastrophe at the border, and ironically, the only group of illegal immigrants that that the Biden administration wants to keep out are Cubans, and one has to think the reason for that is that Cubans tend to vote Republican. 
“And they’re being utterly shameless. We’re on a path to have over 2 million people crossing our southern border illegally this year, and the Biden administration needs to enforce the law and stop playing politics with the safety and security of Americans.”
