Democrat Rep. Cuellar: Harris’s border trip didn’t change anything
UPDATED 12:51 PM PT – Friday, September 24, 2021
Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar (Texas) warned Kamala Harris’s trip to the southern border did not change anything. During an interview on Thursday, Cuellar said the surge of illegal immigration on the southern border won’t let up anytime soon.
Earlier this week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said there were roughly 8,000 Haitian migrants still camped in the Del Rio sector.
“Failures to enforce laws that exist in the United States leads to chaos and chaos leads to inhumanity,” he expressed. “The Biden administration is a man-made disaster of inhumanity of epic proportions. It must end. It must immediately.”
As Biden continues to create chaos, Texas has taken the lead on securing the border, not just for border communities, but for communities across Texas & the U.S.
We will continue surging state resources to save lives & keep Texans safe.

Cuellar was then asked about Harris’s performance as border czar.
Reporter: “In the wake of Vice President Harris’s trip to Latin America, what do you think the impact has been? Has anything changed?”
Cuellar: “With all do respect, no. We’ve been providing assistance to Central America since 2014,” We’re focusing right now what’s happening in the Del Rio sector, but down in the lower Rio Grande Valley, we’ve still got people from Central America coming.”
Cuellar went on to add since day one, he has warned members of the Biden administration people were getting the impression that the border was open.
