The border crisis in Eagle Pass, Texas, is reaching unprecedented levels, with a massive surge of illegal aliens inundating the area. Just yesterday, a group of over 1,000 illegal aliens poured into Eagle Pass, further highlighting the severity of the situation. Even more alarming is the predominant demographic among these newcomers—mostly military-aged men.
Jorge Ventura’s investigative reporting sheds light on the unsettling reality that most of the recent arrivals are not, in fact, Mexican nationals. The porous southern border is becoming an open invitation for illegal aliens from various corners of the globe to exploit Joe Biden’s refusal to enforce federal immigration law. This is not just a local issue; it’s a glaring national security concern that demands immediate attention. As many have said, every state is now a border state.
Jorge Ventura also reported that he encountered several illegal aliens who were injured and required medical attention, which they received.. Many more reportedly have significant chronic medical conditions that required the care of specialists. As we highlighted last week, much of this care is at the expense of our veterans. Vital resources that should go to our own struggling citizens are spent on those who have no respect for our laws and, indeed, couldn’t care less about the well-being of the American people.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is failing in its duty to protect Texans and the nation as a whole. Despite having a clear understanding of the specific points of entry used by these illegal aliens, DHS has yet to take effective measures to prevent them from entering. Instead, they have become a glorified welcoming committee. The invasion at our border persists, and the consequences are dire.
We must hold those politicians, who have allowed this crisis to fester, responsible. The failure to secure our borders directly results from weak policies and inadequate enforcement. It’s time for the American people to take a stand at the ballot box and reject those who have betrayed our trust.
The escalating situation in Eagle Pass serves as a wake-up call for all Americans. The unchecked influx of illegal aliens not only threatens our security but also undermines the very fabric of our nation. We must demand stronger border controls, increased law enforcement presence, full enforcement of the laws on the books, and stricter immigration policies and asylum standards to safeguard our communities and preserve the American way of life.
As Texans, we cannot afford to stand idly by while our borders are overrun. We must unite against the political leaders who have neglected their duty to protect our borders and prioritize the safety of American citizens. The battle begins at the ballot box, where we must elect representatives who prioritize national sovereignty and uphold the values that make America great. Their eventual task will be to undo the damage done under the current administration.
