A disturbing video has widely circulated on Thursday depicting a long and massive line of Central American immigrants waiting for human smugglers’ rafts to transport them to the other side of the Grande Rio River.
The video was caught by former Border Security Operations Center manager Jaeson Jones and later shared by several lawmakers including Rep. Chip Roy who accused the Biden administration of giving a “false promise of amnesty” to hopeless migrants who are getting harmed to cross the border.
Other Republican senators blasted President Biden for the overwhelming surge in migrants’ numbers, with Sen. Ted Cruz calling it a “crisis of Joe Biden’s creation.”
“We have to recognize that words have consequences and actions have consequences,” Rep. Liz Cheney said.
“When Biden administration refuses to enforce our immigration laws when they refuse to build the wall when they pass legislation like the bill that we passed yesterday that includes money for illegal immigrants, this is what happens.”
