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.

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.
“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”
In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.
“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”
“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
