Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, whose district lies on the Mexican border, says he repeatedly warned the Biden White House what was coming. But he was ignored. And now people are suffering.
Cuellar is at least being honest, putting his constituents ahead of the inevitable retribution he will face from the White House for speaking out.
But the Biden administration didn’t need this warning. What has happened was completely predictable.
Donald Trump put in place tough measures — disincentives to try to come into the United States —which, though tough on people in the short term, avoided much pain over the long term.
When Biden removed Trump’s disincentives and instead provided incentives, like telling people he will change immigration laws and make it easier to enter the country and for illegal immigrants to become citizens, people behaved rationally and head straight to the border.
Here are some scenes of the disaster Biden created.
