Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick On Biden’s Border Crisis. ‘We were able to relax under the Trump Administration because he actually did his job and we were in good shape on the border, before Biden got elected. We were in good shape. The protocols were working, keeping the asylum seekers in Mexico.’
Border Patrol warns Biden that ‘overwhelmed’ staff can’t cope with ‘crisis’ levels of immigration:
A Border Patrol chief said the flood of immigrants trying to cross into the US is at ‘crisis’ levels – as a gun battle erupted between two gangs and a Honduran migrant said he was encouraged to come after watching the news.
As Congressional GOP push the line that President Biden created the current border crisis thanks to his early executive actions on immigration and a ‘pathway to citizenship,’ and White House officials insisting it isn’t a crisis, let’s first take a trip down memory lane and review what Biden said during the first Democratic primary debate.
In response to a question on immigration, Biden said that he would make sure there would be an “immediate surge to the border.” While it’s unclear from his answer who exactly would be doing the surging, he also insisted that ‘people seeking asylum deserve to be heard.’
Biden: “I would, in fact, make sure that there is, we immediate surge to the border, all those people seeking asylum they deserve to be heard, that’s who we are, we are nation that says if you want to flee and you are fleeing oppression you should come.”

EXCLUSIVE: Border officials working under the Biden administration tell Fox News that the president and his surrogates are wrong not to call the border situation a “crisis.”
“A week ago I would not have called this a crisis. Today it meets the definition. We are overwhelmed. We do not have the resources to stop the cartels from bringing in illegal aliens, from bringing in drugs, therefore we are in fact in a crisis,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told Fox News.

Why are we not seeing more outrage from the Washington Post, the New York Times or CNN? Where are the complaints about the authoritarian muzzling of the media? Even as the major press outlets do manage to mention the situation, shouldn’t they be rebelling against this blackout? Or is criticism of a Democratic administration still verboten to the point where most of them will quietly sit on their hands?” Some questions answer themselves, and this is one of them.
