Texas Dem: Harris wrong on border security; ‘we get thousands’ along the border every day:
Rep. Henry Cuellar said Saturday he disagreed with Vice President Kamala Harris‘s assessment that the southern border is secure, citing his border district’s experience with the influx of migrants into the United States.
The Texas Democrat cited the thousands of people that come across the border per day, as well as more than four million people reported as crossing the border in the past two years.
“The border is not secure, with all due respect to the VP,” Mr. Cuellar told CNN. “We get thousands of people along the border, at least 6 to 8 thousand people a day.”
The congressman added: “You’re talking about almost 4 plus, maybe 4.4. million individuals in two years. Iff you call that secure, I don’t know what secure is.” --->READ MORE HERE

Texas Dem says Biden needs to show ‘repercussions’ for illegal border crossings with deportations:
A moderate House Democrat who represents a district along Texas’ border with Mexico said Sunday that the Biden administration is failing to stem the influx of illegal crossings because of a lack of deportations and resources.
Rep. Henry Cuellar suggested the administration publicize deportations via photos and videos to dissuade immigrants from making dangerous journeys from Central or South America to the southern border.
“One of the things that this administration is not doing is showing people going and landing in the countries in Honduras and El Salvador to show that there’s repercussions,” Mr. Cuellar said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “When was the last time you saw a picture or video of people going back? You only see people coming in, and you’ve got to have words along with actual enforcement.”
The criticism from Mr. Cuellar, who has been one of the administration‘s biggest Democratic critics on immigration, comes in the wake of Vice President Kamala Harris claiming the “border is secure.”
It also comes amid Republican governors sending migrants who entered the country illegally to northern cities run by Democrats. --->READ MORE HERE
