Val Verde County, Texas Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez (D) made a dire prediction on Friday regarding the situation at the border.
The huge spike in illegal immigrants taking place right now is “something that has not taken place in this part of our county ever,” Martinez said.
If a solution is not implemented, he continued, the situation will get worse and “more people are going to die.”
Martinez praised Border Patrol, who he said are “doing everything they can to handle the situation.”
