The border crisis exacerbated by President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policy over the past three years has sparked consistent outrage among his Republican critics.

As the number of undocumented migrants illegally crossing the nation’s southern border continues to break new records, a growing number of Democrats and mainstream media personalities are beginning to acknowledge the grim reality.

One recent example involved NBC News correspondent Guad Venegas, who was visibly surprised to learn that the consistent complaints of conservatives were rooted in the truth. He visited the Texas border town of Eagle Pass on Thursday, where he met with local leaders and border agents who helped reveal the staggering scale of illegal immigration. 


“These crowds here in Eagle Pass have never been this large during my reporting,” Venegas said. “This is the most people I’ve ever seen in Eagle Pass, and other reporters, colleagues working other parts of the border in Arizona, in Jacumba near San Diego, tell me the same thing.”

He went on to reference conversations that have become commonplace — “Wow, I’ve never seen this number of migrants arriving” — between reporters covering the U.S.-Mexican border.

“We have the number of apprehensions, the numbers of encounters, everything spiking, so we don’t know what this will mean moving forward,” the correspondent acknowledged. “We just know that the numbers are much larger as the resources are spread thin.”

Venegas deferred to a Republican lawmaker with ample experience in the region, who elaborated on the woefully inadequate infrastructure in place to deal with the worsening crisis.

“When the U.S. congressman visited this area, Tony Gonzales said that the hospitals are also overwhelmed,” he said. “So if someone calls 911 and needs to go to the hospital, the hospital might be overwhelmed because they’re helping a lot of these migrants, so you have that humanitarian crisis happening as well.”


The Biden administration has portrayed the undocumented migrants as predominantly asylum seekers escaping hardships in their home countries, even some Democrats are insisting that the barrier for entry for such claims is absurdly low.

“You just can’t come and say: ‘Someone threatened me; I have got to come into your country,’” U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) asserted. “You have to show me proof, have proof that this type of threat to you and your family is basically untenable, and you cannot live in those conditions. That’s going to change things.”
