Texas migrant numbers ‘out of control’

In Del Rio, Texas, the number of migrants waiting under the International Bridge doubled to over 8,000 in a single day. Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the “out of control” situation, sources confirm.

Video footage shows the staggering number of people waiting under the bridge. On Wednesday, the number totaled around 4,000, but it spiked to over 8,200 by Thursday morning.

According to law enforcement, the majority of the migrants are Haitian, and more are arriving by the minute.

The situation marks the latest in a series of border pandemonium during the Biden administration. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said over 208,000 migrant encounters occurred in August, marking a 317% increase from August 2020.

The White House previously assigned blame to the Trump administration for limiting legal pathways to asylum. Meanwhile, the GOP blames the Biden administration’s rollback of Trump-era immigration policies.

Desperately seeking Kamala: the absentee VP

Vice President Kamala Harris has been conspicuous by her absence lately, as President Biden faces mounting pressure over the botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the ongoing border crisis.

“If I’m Kamala Harris right now, I’m extremely offended because you have been used,” co-host of “The Five,” Will Cain, said. “They used you to pander to a voting base to get votes. They had a minority, they had a woman, and now that they don’t need her, they have shelved her because her approval rating is -19.”

The VP has not been easy to find. She took recent trips to Vietnam and Singapore amid the chaos in Afghanistan. Then, she appeared in Hawaii to visit Pearl Harbor. Press was barred from the event.

Some speculate that Harris is being kept out of sight by design. Her recent poll numbers show a 35% approval and a 54% disapproval, atypical for a VP this early in the administration’s run.

Harris has a hard time finding support, even among her supporters.

“I’d vote for her. But I don’t think she can win. And I wouldn’t vote for her in a primary,” Pennsylvania retiree Susan Giffen told the Los Angeles Times.
