While many on the left continue to argue there is “no border crisis,” overcrowded detention centers and massive busts continue to tell the opposite story.
Most recently, in one of the largest busts of it’s kind, 1,036 migrants were apprehended.
El Paso happens to be 2020 candidate Beto’s home town.
Beto once advocated tearing down existing border barriers.
At least Beto is honest about his open border policy. Most Dems claim to support a secure border while simultaneously undermining it at every turn.
Should also note: El Paso mayor stated “The fence has worked.” Residents have “stated that they felt more secure with the fence.” https://t.co/YbDji8dCHa

Border Patrol agents apprehended 1,036 migrants who had crossed into the United States illegally near El Paso, Texas, early Wednesday, according to two U.S. officials and a document obtained by NBC News.
It’s the largest group of migrants ever encountered by the agency, surpassing the prior record, set last month, of 424.
President Donald Trump on Thursday teased an upcoming statement about the border, which he said would be his biggest, and a third U.S. official expects this apprehension to factor into it.
Customs and Border Protection has noticed groups crossing the border in ever larger numbers. Immigration advocates say it provides “safety in numbers” during the treacherous journey, though U.S. officials say it can overwhelm medical teams and border agents.
