Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar (TX) slammed Democrat President Joe Biden during a Fox News interview, saying that Biden has been listening to “activists” and not locals in how to combat the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border.
“The bottom line is I supported Joe Biden for president. He was the most centrist candidate running but the problem, in my opinion, is that he has surrounded himself, at least on the immigration issue, with people that have backgrounds in – I would call them immigration activists — and they’re giving their perspective and the problem is that’s only one perspective,” Cuellar said, adding “What about the perspective of the border communities?”
Cuellar later added, “What about the landowners? I got a call from this landowner two days ago. He was so frustrated. He texts me later saying ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, you know, letting out my frustration.’ I said, no, I wanna hear from you – they’re not listening to the border communities.”
Cuellar continued, “And most importantly, also, they’re not listening to the men and women in green and blue. Somebody has to have their back and when you have the political people that are giving advice to the administration, that is only one-sided.”
Cuellar’s comments come as recent numbers from Border Patrol reveal that Biden’s border crisis has continued to break records, with arrests of migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border reaching in the 2021 fiscal year, the highest annual number ever recorded.

Local TX developer accused of selling land to illegal immigrants creating entire town with ‘four cartels operating there’
Roughly 20 miles northeast of Downtown Houston, Texas, is an entire town where cartels are operating from due to a local developer selling land to border crossers without any paperwork. William ‘Trey’ Harris has been accused of “creating a sprawling illegal migrant town” by “allowing buyers to purchase land without the need to prove income or credit” reports The Daily Mail.
As a result of selling the plots at Colony Ridge without any documentation, an estimated 75,000 people, primarily illegal immigrants, have been able to buy homes and create a town which The Daily Mail reports has at least four separate cartels operating from. The settlement area is approximately 60 square miles in size, and has been developed by Harris through his company Terrano Houston, which uses Spanish language marketing.
Senior National Security Fellow Todd Bensman claimed Harris has been selling off plots direct to a borrowers for a few hundred dollars without conducting any background checks.

A statement on behalf of the company said: ‘The safety of our communities is our foremost goal, and all of our subdivision plots, roads and other infrastructure are built to code and approved by County engineering teams…Our developments have put the American Dream of home ownership within reach for tens of thousands of middle- and working-class Texas families.”
The statement continues: “In addition to these homes, we are also proud of our efforts to improve local infrastructure and bring businesses to the area, as well as our work with local public and charter schools to improve education for our residents’ children and our work with local law enforcement to enhance public safety.”
