The southern border crisis is a “manual failure of presidential leadership”
The migrant crisis on the southern border is an “academic failure of the presidential leadership,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Wednesday, lamenting the “nightmarish conditions” people have been drawn to ” misleading messages from Democrats and Failed Strategies. “
“America is watching a terrible spectacle unfold on our southern border,” said the Republican of Kentucky.
“An academic failure of the presidential leadership. Our citizens deserve better, as do the vulnerable people who have been lured into nightmarish conditions by the deceptive messages and failed policies of the Democrats, ”he added:

McConnell’s remarks coincide with reports of Haitian migrants being released inside the United States. The number could well be in the thousands. This goes against the remarks made on Monday by the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas. At a press conference in Del Rio, Texas, the official warned that illegal immigrants would be “returned.”
“If you come to the United States illegally you will be sent back, your trip will not be successful and you will endanger your life and that of your family,” he said. warned.
However, this does not appear to be the case.
As Breitbart News reported:
“At DHS, we are securing additional transportation to accelerate the pace and increase the capacity of return flights to Haiti and other destinations in the Western Hemisphere,” he said.
Despite these bold promises of dismissal, it seems that the number of Haitians dismissed is in the hundreds while those released are in the thousands.
Photos and videos show the sad state of affairs as illegal migrants build makeshift camps under the Del Rio International Bridge, which Breitbart Texas visited:
Breitbart Texas visited the camp on Friday afternoon. A constant stream of migrants, mostly Haitians, crossed the Rio Grande with supplies, cardboard, bedding and food. Despite the constant transfer of migrants from the camp to local detention centers as space opens up, the border patrol has not been able to reduce the camp’s population.
While the border patrol, Army National Guard troops and other law enforcement officials stood guard, migrants lined up for meals and drinking water in the hundreds. Many moved freely in the bush near the international bridge in search of materials to build shelters.
Several children in the camp sorted through piles of donated clothes while others ran between tents and cane structures. The camp is populated mostly by family units with children, but there are also several thousand single adult men and women.
Over the weekend, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it was “immediately implementing a new comprehensive strategy” to deal with the crisis at the Del Rio border. The plan involves an increase in the number of agents and agents, increased coordination between agencies and additional transport, as well as coordination between “countries of origin and transit” and other local and state partners. .
