SICKENING: Biden's Border Policies Result in 'Deadliest Mass Drowning Incident in the Rio Grande':
In a heated exchange a few days ago with Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted that migrants are not simply walking over the southern U.S. border.
Even though KJP is one of the dumbest and least effective press secretaries in American history, she was partially accurate in her assertion, to her credit. As it turns out, under President Joe Biden’s watch, migrants are also swimming over the border and, unfortunately, dying en masse as a result.
That was evidenced in a heartwrenching update from Fox News’ Bill Melugin, who, along with journalist Ali Bradley, reported that a group of 53 migrants attempting to cross the Rio Grande into the United States near Eagle Pass, Texas, were swept away by rising and dangerous waters on Thursday.
As of Saturday, Bradley confirmed that the lifeless bodies of nine migrants had been recovered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents, with another seven still missing. Thirty-seven migrants who were swept downriver by the fast-moving current have been rescued.
#BREAKING @CBP confirms to me that the bodies of 9 migrants have now been recovered— Search efforts continue to find the remaining 7 people after 53 attempted to cross the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass. 37 migrants were rescued according to the agency.

Melugin added to the report, saying CBP confirmed the latest numbers to Fox News. He also described the horrific situation as the “deadliest mass drowning incident in the Rio Grande in recent memory.” --->READ MORE HERE
Border Patrol pleads with migrants not to come to US after nine drownings:
Border Patrol officials are pleading with immigrants not to attempt the perilous journey to the US after nine migrants recently drowned trying to cross the Rio Grande, according to a report.
Chief Patrol Agent Jason Owens of the Del Rio Sector issued a “warning of extreme importance” on Saturday about rising waters and dangerous currents.
“The currents of the Rio Grande have become more dangerous due to recent and continuing rainfall and more rain is forecasted for the coming week,” Owens said​ in a statement reported by Fox News.
“Despite these adverse conditions, U.S. Border Patrol, Del Rio Sector continues to encounter more than 100+, 200+ attempting to cross the Rio Grande daily​,” it said.
Owens said at least nine people have died over the past several days trying to cross the border, and “in an effort to prevent further loss of life, we are asking everyone to please avoid crossing illegally.”
Officials in the US and Mexico continue to search for bodies along the Rio Grande after nine migrants died in the rain-swollen river last week. --->READ MORE HERE
