Speaker of the House visits Border: “It’s an unmitigated disaster, it’s a disaster of the president’s own design”


Important Takeaways:

  • “Last month alone, we saw the most illegal border crossings in recorded history,” Speaker Johnson said after touring the border region, visiting a Border Patrol processing facility nearby, and receiving a security briefing. “It’s an unmitigated disaster, it’s a disaster of the president’s own design.”
  • Johnson says one Texas Sheriff who formerly worked for the Border Patrol told him it took less than six months for the Biden administration to dismantle what took 100 years for the Border Patrol to achieve.
  • In December, more than 70,000 migrants made landfall in the Del Rio Sector. Most entries centered around Eagle Pass and the outdoor staging site near the Camino Real International Bridge. The record-breaking influx of migrants prompted U.S. Customs and Border Protection to shut down cross-border rail operations at Eagle Pass, the second busiest rail port of entry in the state of Texas.
  • Although the rail line has since re-opened, one of two official ports of entry into Mexico from Eagle Pass remains shut.
  • The Biden administration continues to shatter Border Patrol records dating back to the Clinton administration during Fiscal Year 2000.
