After spending a day in a border town in Del Rio, Texas, where illegal immigrants are at stake, Congressman August Pfruger (Republican) is ringing a warning, he said.
Pfluger posted a new photo on Twitter showing a temporary campground full of individuals who broke into the United States and evacuated under the border bridge between Del Rio and Ciudad Akunya in Mexico. He said Saturday’s crowd increased from 12,000 the day before to 15,000, “an hundreds more gather every hour.”
A devastating scene from today’s Del Rio.
I spoke with local leaders and experienced law enforcement officers. The best thing I’ve heard is that this is the worst thing they’ve ever seen.

“Most were old military men aged 18-35. The majority of migrants were Haitians, but I spoke with migrants from 6-7 countries, including Cuba, Venezuela, Honduras, etc.” He writes.
According to Pfluger, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents are overwhelmed by the influx of illegal intersections as illegal migrants are “pushed across borders.” CBP has already closed the port of Del Rio, with Eagle Pass, located 60 miles southeast, being the closest port of entry.
“An additional 400 CBP agents have been sent to Del Rio, where CBP is using flights to repatriate Haitians, which, based on what is happening on the ground, tampers with the chaotic situation. It’s almost not enough to do, “he added. “The crisis has reached its boiling point. Del Rio officials are not ready to handle nearly 15,000 migrants entering the community.”
The visit of Pfruger came when Bruno Lozano, Mayor of Del Rio, called President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to pay attention to what was happening in his town.
Harris, who was tasked with dealing with the border crisis in March, appeared at Howard University on Saturday and led the coin toss at a college football event.
“VPs can visit fun events across the country, but the American community continues to work on failed immigration reforms. Where are the visits to Del Rio, Texas?” Democrat Rosano, Commented on Harris’s post Of her coin toss.
In response to another post by Harris, he also said: “The United States is lagging behind in investing in childcare on a global scale. Compared to GDP, public funding for early childhood education and care is less than in almost every other developed country. With our Build Back Better Agenda, @POTUS and I are determined to change that. “
“The United States has failed to defend its borders. Why aren’t you here? @POTUS,” writes Lozano.
