A Democratic mayor in Texas is begging President Joe Biden to stop flooding his border city with illegal immigrants during the weather crisis.

Del Rio, Texas mayor Bruno Lozano took to Youtube this week to plead with Biden to “please stop” and to “make a new plan” with migrants awaiting court dates. The situation, he said, is not only dangerous for his residents but for the migrants who are exposed to the deadly unexpected winter that settled into the region.

“I am pleading and requesting with you to please put a halt to any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates into the city of Del Rio and surrounding areas,” Lozano said in a Feb. 17 video.

He went on to say the city does not have resources to accommodate migrants.

“I will have no choice but to use the extreme measure under the Emergency Declaration as the mayor of the city of Del Rio, Texas to refuse the entry of migrants awaiting court dates,” he said.

The mayor tells Biden that if the migrants are allowed in, the city will be forced to leave them without resources during this difficult time in the face of a pandemic and the ongoing Texas winter storm that left millions without power and heating.

The New York Post reported the Biden administration is working to undo Trump-era policies, including a policy Friday that allowed 25 migrants to enter the United States and await court hearings — instead of staying in Mexico like previous rules called for.

The administration is looking to bring more migrants into the US to await their trials and be released in Texas and California in the coming week.

The Del Rio mayor says this is not possible for his town and is asking for power, water, and resources if Biden allows migrants in.

“We are completely and utterly spread thin with resources for our own community,” he said.

If Biden does go through with the plan, Lozano requests that he “provide the means and supplies necessary to accompany them safely under these extreme circumstances.”

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
