President Biden admitted to a reporter Tuesday that the border is out of control following reports from the Texas border. This comes after pictures of migrant encampments along the southern border went viral this week.
As Biden walked with his team around the United Nations Assembly, a reporter shouted out at him.
“Mr. President, what’s your reaction to the images coming from the southern border?” the reporter asked.
“Get it under control,” Biden responded without stopping.
Then, the reporter followed up. “Get it under control or you have it under control?” the reporter asked.
“We will get it under control,” Biden said.
As a result of the ongoing border crisis, Texas Governor Greg Abbott held press conference Tuesday to discuss it. A surge of more than 16,000 migrants arrived at the Del Rio International Bridge this past week alone.
According to Abbott, the chaos was caused by the current White House. “The Biden Administration’s failure to enforce immigration laws and halt illegal crossings on a federal dam poses life-threatening risks to Texans and the migrants themselves,” Abbott said at the presser. “Texans ― and all Americans ― demand and deserve a secure southern border and the protection of our nation’s sovereignty.”
In August, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 208,887 migrants at the southern border.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.
Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”
“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.
“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.
Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”
Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”
“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”
In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”
Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
