close Video Biden administration ‘out of touch’ on the border crisis: Texas Gov. Abbott Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on the Biden administration facing backlash over border policies. President Joe Biden can deny it all he wants, but the reality is we have a crisis at our southern border. I saw it with my own eyes last month when I visited the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. The surge of unaccompanied minors , the subpar living conditions of migrants, and the state of an overworked and overwhelmed Border Patrol have been direct consequences of the Biden administration’s failed policies. This was never supposed to happen under Biden’s watch. As a candidate, he promised the American people that he would " secure our border while ensuring the dignity of migrants." As president, he has done neither.

Shocking video out of Texas shows a rescue operation conducted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents last week on the Rio Grande river. In the video, obtained by CNN and reportedly recorded last week, Border Patrol agents can be seen rescuing two children clinging to an island on the river after they attempted to cross but became trapped by the quick-moving currents. The two children, whose names CBP did not release, were reportedly of Honduran descent, ages 7 and 13. The two are not related and became separated from their parents in Mexico, according to CNN. ADVERTISEMENT A man claimed that he would help them cross the river and enter the U.S., the two reportedly told the agents, but abandoned them. Their rescue comes amid a surge of migrants, particularly unaccompanied minors, making the treacherous journey across Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they hope to apply for asylum or eventually be reunited with family members.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki repeatedly referred to the threat of the “climate crisis” while denying there was a “crisis” on the southern border. “The president does not feel the children coming to our borders seeking refuge from violence, economic hardships, and other dire circumstances is a crisis,” Psaki said, referring to the flood of unaccompanied minor migrants traveling to the United States since Biden became president. Nearly 19,000 unaccompanied children were arrested in March, according to a law enforcement source to Breitbart News, marking an all-time monthly record for the United States. Over 20,000 unaccompanied minors remain in both Heath and Human Services and Customs and Border Protection detainment centers.

Climate changes are driving women and girls to flee from Central Americans to the United States amid risks of sexual violence during the harrowing journey, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken proclaimed Monday. Nevertheless, President Joe Biden, who has made similar claims, did not invite the Central American nations mentioned by Blinken — El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, together known as the Northern Triangle region — to the White House climate summit this week. The climate summit will include leaders from 40 countries, Blinken noted. The risks facing Central American migrant women and girls— including sexual attacks, sexual trafficking, and forced prostitution — are worsened by Biden’s pro-migration policies, including his acceptance of children, teenagers, and families across the border, Republicans say. Nevertheless, while delivering a speech Monday from the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, Blinken claimed the “climate crisis” is to blame for fueling the surge of … [Read more...] about Antony Blinken: ‘Climate Crisis’ Forcing Central American Girls to ‘Risk Sexual Violence’ During Trip to U.S.
