Texas border sheriff Joe Frank Martinez (D) went after President Biden over the changes he has made to immigration policy that has created a serious crisis on the Southern Border.
Thanks to Biden’s policies, immigrants are rushing the border, and crossings have surged as border patrol agents have been overwhelmed. Worse yet, immigrant drownings have tripled since last year.
Martinez said, “I think it’s driven by the lack of this administration addressing immigration issues. In my opinion, when this administration came in, they threw the baby out with the bathwater, and they didn’t have a policy in place, and now they’re struggling to catch up, and from what I’m seeing, they’re not being totally factual as to what they’re doing with these immigrants.”
Biden has been in office for nearly two months, and already the situation at the border is spiraling out of control. Immigrants are coming in waves incentivized by rhetoric from Biden and other Democrats that they will be welcomed.
Martinez continued saying, “This loss of life is very sad, and I wish this administration, both sides, would get together and come up with something effective for everyone. They’re putting that burden on the border, on the citizens of our community. We’re dealing with it on a daily basis, and there’s not enough being done.”
Biden essentially reversed every policy that former President Trump put in place, and the effects of such reckless changes have been catastrophic.
