The mostly-Hispanic liberal communities along our nation's border are not big fans of President Joe Biden's new immigration policies.
Open borders are bad for everyone: especially those who live in South Texas during a winter storm.
The Democratic mayor of the Del Rio, Texas, Bruno Lozano, pleaded with President Joe Biden on Wednesday to halt the release of migrants into the area as the state faces extreme weather conditions and power shutoffs.
A YouTube account for the Del Rio government hosted a desperate video from Lozano “pleading” with Biden to stop “any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates into the City of Del Rio and surrounding areas.”
"After the extreme weather and emergency conditions in the area, the city does not have the resources available to house and accommodate these migrants within the community," a caption for the video reads.
As noted by The Wall Street Journal, migrants are not tested by Customs and Border Protection before they are released across the border, though it is protocol that they’ll be taken to a local hospital if the migrant is showing symptoms of COVID-19 or another illness. "Aid groups such as the one in Del Rio advise people to quarantine if they believe they may have [COVID]-19, but lack the resources to pay for hotels or other accommodations," the Journal added.
“I will have no choice but to use the extreme measure under the emergency declaration as the mayor of the city of Del Rio, Texas, to refuse the entry of migrants awaiting court dates into the city of Del Rio,” he told the president. “If you do send these individuals into our community, we will be forced to make a decision to leave them without resources under these dire circumstances.”
