A Texas mayor opened up on Tucker Carlson Tonight about the reality of the situation at the Southern Border
, equating it to the “wild, wild West.”
“We all get so frustrated in our community when we hear them and we hear our leadership tell us, ‘Oh, the southern border is under control,'” he said.
T”he southern border is not under control. It’s a mad house,” the mayor said.
McLaughlin told Tucker about the crimes his state sees every day due to the surge of migrants at the border and tha lack of a response form the Biden administration.
“We have car chases on a daily basis. We have immigrants jumping off trains. We have them coming into our schools. It’s just non-stop,” McLaughlin said.
He told Tucker that Border Patrol is often too preoccupied with children to stop the adult males streaming in, who are the ones with criminal records.
There are illegal immigratns “running through people’s yards,” he said.
“This is something we’re having to deal with every day. And it’s getting worse and worse and worse.”

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42
Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.
In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.
Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.
Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.
One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.
“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
