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.”

Uvalde, Texas Mayor Don McLaughin joined Carlson to discuss the border crisis. His town is around 100 miles from the border with Mexico, as reported by the Daily Caller.

“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.”

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.”
