Biden’s crisis at the border is so much worse than anyone ever expected. Now we have video showing the extent of the carnage.
And this disturbing discovery at the southern border has Biden dead to rights.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott published a video on social media this week of President Joe Biden’s Border Patrol dismantling razor wire along the Rio Grande to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the nation.
“Texas installed razor wire in Eagle Pass to stop illegal crossings,” the governor wrote on X (formerly, Twitter).
“Today the Biden Admin CUT that wire, opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants.”
“I immediately deployed more Texas National Guard to repel illegal crossings & install more razor wire,” he added.

Texas Border Czar Mike Banks posted a video on Thursday showing Texas National Guard soldiers reinstalling razor wire that the Biden Administration had cut.
“Texas will continue to install more razor wire and fortify the border against illegal crossings,” Abbott said. “We will not back down.”

According to NewsNation, 4,000 illegal aliens assaulted the area on Wednesday, and the line stretched five miles into Mexico at one point.
Eagle Pass’s Democratic mayor, Rolando Salinas, declared a municipal catastrophe in order to provide additional resources to deal with the crisis.
“There has been a situation the last couple of days where we have gotten an influx of immigrants crossing through Eagle Pass. And it has taken a toll on our local resources,” said Salinas.
“I’ve been getting a lot of calls from our constituents, and they get worried — they see a lot of a lot of people in our community.”
On Thursday, Salinas told CNN that the situation was “unacceptable” and that he had not heard from anyone in the Biden administration.
“I haven’t heard from anyone in the administration,” he said. “No one has bothered to call me.”

The Biden administration has yet to reveal official immigration totals for August, but rumors indicate that numbers are returning to their peak in May.
From Friday through Monday, an estimated 9,000 immigrants a day crossed the southern border. Over 9,700 individuals were reportedly apprehended or processed crossing the southern border illegally and through ports of entry on Monday alone.
NEW: Per CBP sources, in the last 24 hours, Border Patrol apprehended over 8,000 illegal immigrants, & when combined w/ CBP ports of entry, there were a staggering 9,700+ migrant encounters across the border in one day. Highest day on record was 10,000+ in May before T42 ended.

NEW: Past four days (Fri-Mon) total migrant encounters at the SW border (BP+OFO) exceeded 35k at an average of nearly 9,000 per day per CBP sources. Exact count: 35,573 encounters / 8,893 daily average… This does NOT include Known Gotaways @FoxNews

Because neither total includes emigrants, the true number of immigrants who entered the country is almost certainly larger. The daily crossing record was set in May, prior to the repeal of Title 42, at slightly more than 10,000 per day.
