Liberal policies are trash. Literally. Townhall Media reporter Julio Rosas tweeted a video of the astounding amount of trash being left behind by migrants as they cross the border. As one social media user noted, where is the outrage from the left’s environmental warriors.
Rosas tweeted out the video, explaining in the caption “A Border Patrol source in the Yuma Sector, which is one of the hardest-hit sectors, sent me this video of the trash people leave behind after illegally crossing the U.S. – Mexico border.”

The Yuma Sector has become a very popular area for migrants to be able to cross the border easier due to the Colorado River having easier points to cross, lowering the risk of drowning and because the border wall stops just before the Cocopah Reservation, reports Towmhall.
Generally along with exorbitant amounts of trash, wet and worn down clothing and shoes are also left behind after migrants swim and travel hundreds of miles to cross the border.
To add some perspective to the increasing border crisis, Border Patrol agents encountered over 28,000 immigrants in December of 2020 at the Yuma Sector. One year earlier in December of 2020, a significantly less amount of 1,208 illegal immigrants were encountered at the same location. In 2019, less than 800 people were encountered, according to the Washington Examiner.

Border Crisis by the numbers: in January agents seize 500lbs drugs and 70 criminals with outstanding warrants
The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.
Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.
The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.
There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
