Mexican military crossing border confronted by CBP: Brandon Judd


GREGG: THANK YOU JENNIFER. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NEW CRACKDOWN ON ASYLUM SEEKERS TAKING FULL AFFECT, COMING UNDER AN IMMEDIATE LEGAL CHALLENGE FROM GROUPS LIKE THE ACLU . REQUIRING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO SEEK ASYLUM IN ONE OF COUNTRIES THEY ARE TRAVELING THROUGH.>>THIS IS BASIC INTERNATIONAL LAW, IF YOU LEAVE A COUNTRY, AND YOU SEEK ASYLUM, STANDARD IS, YOU SEEK ASYLUM IN THE FIRST COUNTRY YOU COME TO. GREGG: AS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CRACKS DOWN ON ASYLUM SEEKER, THE 45 DAY WINDOW GIVEN TO MEXICO BY PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NEARING ITS END, MEXICO HAS DETAINED AND DEPORTED MORE PEOPLE THAN BEFORE, MORE THAN 29,000 ILLEGALS LAST MONTH. DEPORTING CLOSE TO 22,000. AN EFFORT THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK NOTE OF TODAY.>>NO QUESTION ABOUT IT, DEMOCRATS ARE FIGHTING — PEOPLE COME THROUGH, BUT NOW WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH MEXICO, 21 THOUSAND SOLDIERS, THEY ARE HELPING THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY WERE HAVING A LOT OF CRIME, THE BORDERS WERE RUN BY THE CARTEL, MEXICO IS TAKING BACK ITS COUNTRY. I GIVE THE PRESIDENT’S TREMENDOUS AIM OF CREDIT FOR THAT. GREGG: JOINING ME TO TALK ABOUT BRANDON JUDD, I UNDERSTAND HAVE YOU A BIT OF BREAK NEWS FROM THE BORDER EL PASO SECTOR.>>YES, ABOUT 45 MINUTINGS AGO WE HAD A MEXICAN MILITARY INCURSION INTO UNITED STATES, SEVERAL MILITARY PERSONNEL FROM MEXICO ACROSSES RIO GRANDE RIVER TO OUR FENCE, ABOUT 200 YARDS NORTH INTO UNITED STATES, THEY WERE LOOKING AROUND, AN AGENT RESPONDED, WHEN THAT AGENT RESPONDED VAST MAJORITY OF THEM WENT BACK, ONE DID NOT MAKE IT BACK, AGENT TRIED TO TAKE THAT INDIVIDUAL TO CUSTODY, A MINOR SCUFFLE ENSUED WHERE THE MEXICAN MILITARY PRELIMINARYTH OFFICIAL WAS — OFFICIAL WAS ABLE TO GET AWAY MAKING IT BACK TO MEXICO. THIS OUTLINES THE DIFFICULTY WE ARE HAVING ON OUR BORDER, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN JUST AN INCURSION, JUST LOOKING AROUND, THAT POSSIBLE, THEY WERE NOT CARRYING WEAPON AS FAR AS I KNOW, UNLIKE THE OTHER COUPLE MONTHS AGO WHEN WE HAD MEXICAN MILITARY COME INTO UNITED STATES AND DISARM SOME OF YOUR NATIONAL GUARDSMEN, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN JUST THEM LOOK AROUND, BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN FOR NO COULD HAVE BEEN FOR NEFARIOUS POTENTIALS, WITH DRUG CARTELS USING MEXICAN MILITARY TO SCOPE OUT THE AREA TO CROSS DRUGS, WE JUST DON’T KNOW. GREGG: ALMOST A DAILY CRISIS,. THERE .HERE .I RE .I DO’ TO ASK YOU, ABOUT THE POR .I DO’ TO ASK YOU, ABOUT THE POT BORDER CITY, I SHOULD SAY OF DEL RIO, TEXAS. AS I UNDERSTAND, MIGRANTS TRYING EN MASSE TO RUSH THE BORDER AND TAKE IT BY FORCE TO CROSS INTO UNITED STATES?>>THEY WERE, THERE WAS SEVERAL HUNDRED INDIVIDUALS, THAT WERE UPSET THEY WERE NOT BEING PROCESS THROUGH PORT OF CENTURY QUICK ENOUGH, THEY WERE PLANNING TO RUSHING THE PORT OF ENTRY, THIS IS A GOOD CASE OF WHERE THE MEXICAN MILITARY STEPPED UP, DID A GREAT JOB IN HELPING US CONTROL THIS SITUATION. BUT OUR OFFICERS AT THE PORT THEY ALSO ACTED IMMEDIATELY AND QUICKLY, THEY QUICKLY SHUT DOWN THE PORT OF ENTRY, TO WHERE THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A THREAT EVEN IF THE INDIVIDUALS HAD RUSHED. THIS IS WHAT WE’RE FACING, THESE ARE WHEN WHAT OUR BORDER CONTROL AGENTS FACE ON A DAILY BASIS, WE DON’T KNOW GOOD FROM BAD, WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEPARATE THOSE INDIVIDUALS, HAVE YOU CERTAIN CONGRESSMEN CALLING FOR DECRIMINALIZATION OF PEOPLE WHO ENTER THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THEM INTO CUSTODY AND VERIFY WHO THEY ARE. YOU DECRIMINALIZE IT, YOU JUST OPEN BORDERS UP CARTE BLANCHE AND WE DON’T KNOW WHO CROSSING. THIS IS WHY PRESIDENT THIS IS WHE PRESIDENT THIS IS WHERERESIDENT THIS IS WHERE PSIDENT THIS IS WHERE PREDENT THIS IS WHERE PRESINT THIS IS WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DONE SUCH A GREAT JOB ON HIS OWN, CONGRESS REFUSES TO HELP HIM BUT HE CONTINUES TO LOOK FOR WAYS HE CAN GO ABOUT IT ON HIS OWN. BUT YOU HAVE THE ACLU THAT WILL FIGHT HIM ON IT, WHEN HE WINS HE WILL MAKE CONGRESS LOOK SILLY, HE SINGLE-HANDEDLY WILL BE ABLE TO CONTROL THIS ISSUE. GREGG: IF OBAMA DID THE SAME THING, THE ACLU WOULD NOTE THING, THE ACLU WOULD NOT BLINK OR FILE A LAWSUIT, THIS REFLECTIVE ACTION BY LIBERAL ACLU . I WANT TO ASK MORE ABOUT THIRD COUNTRY ASYLUM RULE THAT PRESIDENT HAS INSTITUTED. YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO APPLY IN THE COUNTRY YOU PASS THROUGH. NOT COMING TO UNITED STATES AND THEN APPLYING THREE WEEKS LATER YOU VANISH. AVERAGE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IS HERE 15 YEARS. IS THIS AN EFFECTIVE SOLUTION.>>IT WILL BE VERY, AS LONG AS WE CAN GET IT THROUGH THE COURT SYSTEM, THE PRESIDENT SECURED AN AGREEMENT WITH MEXICAN GOVERNMENT THAT ANY OF HIS PREDECESSORS WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE BUT THEY DID NOT HAVE THE POLITICAL WILL TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. PRESIDENT TRUMP DID. YOU HAVE SAFETY COUNTRY RULES, THIS WILL DESCROP NUMBER THIS WILL DROCROP NUMBER THIS WILL DROPROP NUMBER THIS WILL DROP TP NUMBER THIS WILL DROP THENUMBER THIS WILL DROP THE NMBER THIS WILL DROP THE NUMER THIS WILL DROP THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE CROSSING THE BORDER ILLEGALLY, HE IS DOING THIS SYSTEMATICALLY, AND SINGLE HANDEDLY CAUSING THAT DROP TO HAPPEN AT BORDER, WE APPLAUD HIM FOR THAT, WE HAVE TO HAVE THE HELP TO ABATE THIS CRISIS. GREGG: OTHER PROBLEM IS LAWLESS AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT. AND I POINT YOUR ATTENTION TO THE I.C.E. REPORT, INDIVIDUALS ARRESTED FOR SUSPECTED CRIMES, THEY WERE SERIOUS CRIMES, THEY WERE ALL THEN RELEASED BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES. POLICE CHIEFS AND SHERIFFS AND SO FORTH. AND THEY IGNORED THE DETAINER REQUESTS FROM I.C.E. NOW AS I READ THAT LAW, THOSE OFFICIALS WHO RELEASED THOSE PEOPLE ARE AIDING AND ABETTING THAT IS A FELONY, SHOULD NOT BE ENFORCED.>>WE HAVE TO HAVE U.S. ATTORNEY OFFICE LOOK AT THIS, WE HAVE TO HAVE U.S. ATTORNEY OFFICE ALSO LOOK AT WHEN THEY ARE SENDING OUT INFORMATION, AND LETTING THEM KNOW HOW THEY CAN AVOID I.C.E. PICKING THEM UP AND TAKING THEM INTO CUSTODY, LAWFULLY, WE HAVE TO HAVE TAKE A TOUGH LOOK AT THIS. BUT IT IS GOING TO BE DEPUTY BUT IT IS GOING TO BE -EPUTY BUT IT IS GOING TO BE –PUTY DEPARTMENT OF JUSTS THEY HAS TO STEP UP TO DO THEIR JOB. AND IF THEY DON’T WE’LL CONTINUE TO HAVE MURDERS AND RAPE HIRE IN U.S., LEFT SAID IT DOES NOT HAPPEN, BUT IN REALITY WE HAVE SEVERAL PEOPLE COMMITTING HEINOUS CRIME HERE’S IN UNITED STATES, THEY HAD NOT BE HERE, AND HAD THESE SANCTUARY CITIES COMPLY WITH I.C.E. DETAINERS, THOSE CRIMES WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN PLACE. GREGG: IF SOMEONE DIES AS A COULDN’T 87 AOULDN’T 87 ACOLDN’T 87 ACONSN’T 87 ACONSEQT 87 ACONSEQUE87 ACONSEQUENCE OF THEIR LETTING THIS ILLEGAL ALIEN GO, UNDER

AG Barr making major changes to immigration courts


MILLION CASES. JOINING ME NOW, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL VICE PRESIDENT. ART, GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN. HAVE WE FINALLY FOUND A WAY AROUND SOME OF THESE ASYLUM RULES THAT HAVE BEEN SUCH A LURE FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?>>WELL, I MEAN, THIS CERTAINLY IS SOMETHING HUGE THAT IS GOING TO HELP, AND I WILL ADD, NOT ONLY IS IT SOMETHING THAT HELPS STOP THESE ASYLUM CLAIMS, BUT PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT DETAINING THESE INDIVIDUALS LONGER, BUT WHAT IT IS GOING TO DO, IT IS GOING TO GIVE IMMIGRATION OFFICERS THE TIME TO TALK TO THESE PEOPLE AND DETERMINE WHO IS AN ACTUAL GUARDIAN OF THESE MINORS AND WHO IS NOT. DAVID: GREAT POINT.>>YOU HAVE GOT TO REMEMBER, THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION IS BRINGING THESE KIDS KNOWING HEY WITHIN 20 DAYS, WE WILL BE RELEASED, SO WHAT’S HAPPENING IS THEY ARE USING THESE MINORS AS PAWNS FOR THEIR CRIMINAL GAME. WE DON’T KNOW IF SOME OF THESE KIDS ARE ACTUALLY RELATED TO THESE INDIVIDUALS. THIS GIVES IMMIGRATION THE EXTRA TIME SO WE CAN FIGURE OUT IF THESE ARE LEGITIMATE NOT ONLY LEGITIMATE ASYLUM CLAIMS, BUT WE NEED TO SEE IF THEY ARE LEGITIMATELY FAMILY MEMBERS, AND THAT IS IMPORTANT. I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYBODY WOULD AGAINST IT. TO BE AGAINST SOMETHING LIKE THIS MEANS YOU REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT THESE CHILDREN. DAVID: IT IS EXTRAORDINARY THAT THE LEFT HAS KIDNAPPED THE WHOLE IDEA OF COMPASSION. THEY SAY, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE THE ONLY ONES WITH THE COMPASSION, YET, I THINK IT IS VERY UNCOMPASSIONATE — IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF COMPASSION TO ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE PUT IN THE HAND OF SMUGGLERS, SMUGGLERS WHO ARE NOT RELATED TO THEM.>>DEFINITELY, IT HAS CREATED A MAGNET TO ALLOW THESE INDIVIDUALS, ONE, TO BREAK OUR LAWS, TWO, TO MAKE FALSE CLAIMS TO ASYLUM AND DEFINITELY IT’S PUT KIDS AT RISK. THANK GOD THAT WE HAVE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, THAT ARE GOING FORWARD WITH THIS AND REALISTICALLY THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE CREDIT THEY DESERVE, BUT NOT ONLY ARE THEY STOPPING FALSE ASYLUM, THEY ARE SAVING A LOT OF KIDS’ LIVES AND THAT’S IMPORTANT. DAVID: LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS GETTING INVOLVED IN THIS. WE HAVE A TERRIFIC ATTORNEY GENERAL RIGHT NOW WHO IS OPERATING ON SO MANY FRONTS, BUT ONE OF THOSE FRONTS IS IMMIGRATION. HE WANTS TO APPOINT TOUGHER IMMIGRATION JUDGES. APPARENTLY THERE HAVE BEEN JUDGES THAT HAVE BEEN PERFECTLY OKAY WITH A MILLION CASES BACKLOGGED IN THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, BUT THERE ARE OTHER JUDGES WHO ARE MUCH TOUGHER, WANT TO SEE THAT CLEARED OUT. WILL THAT HELP?>>I MEAN, I DON’T SEE IT AS THEM APPOINTING TOUGHER JUDGES. I SEE IT AS THEY ARE APPOINTING JUDGES THAT WILL BE EFFICIENT AND GET THE JOB DONE, AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE DONE. THE AMOUNT OF BACKLOGGED CASES IS JUST RIDICULOUS. AND I THINK THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS HAVE EXPLOITED THAT, AND THEY’VE USED THAT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE, KNOWING FULLY WELL THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS WILL BE JUST CAUGHT AND LEASED IN THE COUNTRY — RELEASED IN THE COUNTRY. DAVID: OF COURSE THEY HAVE. BACK HOME AND WHAT INNOCENT U.S. CITIZENS ARE GOING THROUGH AS A RESULT OF SOME OF THIS CRISIS, NOT ONLY THOSE ON THE BORDER, BUT ONCE THE ILLEGALS SPREAD OUT AND DO NOT ACTUALLY GO BACK TO THE CORRIDORS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO AND SETTLE ELSEWHERE. A LOT OF THEM ARE CRIMINALS. NEW DATA FROM THE DOJ ON FEDERAL ARREST OVER ILLEGALS, OVER A 20 YEAR PERIOD, I WAS UNAWARE THAT 64% OF ALL FEDERAL ARRESTS WERE OF NON-U.S. CITIZENS. 64% WERE NON-U.S. CITIZENS.>>AND WHAT’S RIDICULOUS IS YOU HEAR INDIVIDUALS THAT THEY WANT TO MAKE UP FOR THAT, AND THEY SAY WELL, WE HAVE CRIMINALS IN THE UNITED STATES. I KNOW WE HAVE CRIMINALS HERE. BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN WE NEED TO START IMPORTING ANYMORE. WE’RE NOT AGAINST IMMIGRATION. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT. WE’RE VERY PRO-IMMIGRATION. BUT WE’RE PRO-LEGAL IMMIGRATION. THERE’S A RIGHT WAY TO DO THINGS, AND THERE’S A WRONG WAY TO DO THINGS. DAVID: YOU DON’T WANT CRIMINALS COMING IN, AND YOU WANT PEOPLE COMING IN WHO ARE GOING TO BE WORKING HARD AND WHO WE NEED. THAT’S ANOTHER REASON WHY WE’VE GOT TO GET TO A MERIT-BASED SYSTEM, A SYSTEM WHERE WE’RE ABLE TO DECIDE WHO COMES IN AND WE DO HAVE JOBS AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH PARTICULAR SKILLS, TRY TO MATCH THOSE PEOPLE WITH THOSE JOB NEEDS THAT WE HAVE.>>THE SIMPLEST WAY I HAVE EXPLAINED IT TO PEOPLE, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE AISLE, OR THE LEFT SIDE OF THE AISLE, WHEN YOU ARE AT HOME, YOU WANT INDIVIDUALS TO KNOCK ON YOUR DOOR, AND YOU WANT TO MAKE THE DECISION ON WHO YOU ALLOW IN YOUR HOME, AND WHO YOU DON’T, YOU WANT INDIVIDUALS BREAKING THROUGH YOUR WINDOWS OR COMING IN UNANNOUNCED. THAT’S WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. WE SHOULD HAVE IT AT OUR NATION’S BORDERS. DAVID: THAT’S A GOOD ANALYSIS. THE CBP WASN’T APPARENTLY COLLECTING DNA SAMPLES FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. THAT WAS A PROBLEM WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS WHO, WHO IS RELATED TO WHOM, WHETHER A PERSON HAS A BACKGROUND OR JUST GETTING THE DNA SAMPLES SO YOU CAN TRACK THAT PERSON IF THEY DO GET INVOLVED IN CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. IS THAT CHANGING NOW?>>THAT SHOULD BE CHANGING, AND HONESTLY, A LOT OF THESE CHANGES THAT ARE HAPPENING, YOU KNOW, I SOUND LIKE I’M CHEERLEADING, BUT THE HONEST TO GOODNESS TRUTH IS, WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT’S CARING ABOUT THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT’S CARING ABOUT AMERICAN CITIZENS AND MOVING FORWARD, I HOPE IT CONTINUES, BUT WE’RE VERY GRATEFUL RIGHT NOW. WE’RE IN A POSITION RIGHT NOW WHERE WE CAN’T TAKE A STEP BACK, AND AS I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES BEFORE, ILLEGAL IS NOT A RACE. STOP MAKING IT ABOUT RACE. DAVID: ABSOLUTELY.>>WE ALL NEED TO START BEHAVING LIKE AMERICANS. DAVID: ABSOLUTELY. WE’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THAT LATER IN THE PROGRAM, BUT TO PUT THIS IN A RACIAL CONTEXT IS ABSURD.

Appeals court sides with Trump administration on asylum rules


GRIFF: WELCOME BACK IT WAS A WIN FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AS THE NINTH CIRCUIT OF APPEALS FOR NOW WILL ALLOW THE PRESIDENT WANTS ASYLUM POLICY THAT LIMITS REQUESTS TO MOVE FORWARD. THE RULING, HOWEVER, MAKING IT SO BORDER OFFICIALS IN CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA WILL NOT BE ABLE TO APPLY THE NEW RULE AGAINST ASYLUM SEEKERS WHILE AGENTS IN TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO CAN. ACTING CBP COMMISSIONER MARK MORGAN JOINS YOU NOW TO REACT. GOOD MORNING, MARK. I WANT TO ASK YOU HOW WILL THIS IMPACT THINGS? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU IN THE OVERALL GOAL OF TRYING TO SECURE OUR BORDER?>>WELL, I THINK WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS JUST NOW COMPLICATED THESE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS ARE. SO, SOMETIMES WE GET ENJOINED NATIONALLY AND THEN IN THIS CASE WE WERE INITIALLY AND THEN WE HAVE A PARTIAL VICTORY WHERE WE CAN INSTITUTE THIS PARTIALLY. BUT, IN THOSE STATES, TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO WHERE WE CAN INSTITUTE THIS NOW, THIS WILL BE A GAME CHANGER. IT WILL ALLOW US TO ABSOLUTELY INSTITUTE AN INITIATIVE NOW WE TRULY BELIEVE WILL HELP STEM THE FLOW OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. GRIFF: COMMISSIONER, IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHAT TO ADD TO FURTHER HOPE YOU CONTROL THESE NUMBERS, WHAT WOULD YOU REQUEST? WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN?>>WELL, THE FIRST THING WE HAVE BEEN SAYING, GRIFF, YOU AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT A LONG TIME IS WE ARE DOING GREAT STUFF WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO AND THE GOVERNMENT OF GUATEMALA. THEY STEPPED UP IN UNPRECEDENTED WAYS TO LOOK AT THIS AS A REGIONAL CRISIS. IN SOME WAYS IT’S A GAME CHANGER RIGHT NOW. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT’S NOT A DURABLE, SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION. WE STILL NEED CONGRESS TO GET TOGETHER TO PASS MEANINGFUL LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS THE LOOPHOLES IN OUR SYSTEM. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY WE’RE GOING TO TRULY ADDRESS THIS CRISIS. GRIFF: WELL, SPEAKING OF ADDRESSING THINGS, COMMISSIONER I HAVE GOT TO ASK YOU. I TRAVEL A LOT. I DO NOT LIKE TRAVEL DELAYS THERE WERE INCIDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FROM JFK HERE ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE WEST COAST, YOUR SYSTEM CRASHED CAUSING HUGE LINES, FRUSTRATED PASSENGERS FOR CHAOS, FOR IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS WHO WERE UNABLE TO PROCESS PEOPLE. CAN YOU SEE HERE IN NEW YORK. YOU CAN SEE THE UPSET PASSENGERS. WHAT HAPPENED?>>SO, IT’S FRUSTRATING. AND WE ARE JUST AS FRUSTRATED THAT HAPPENED. WHAT WE CAN SAY IS WE HAVE NO INDICATION THERE WAS ANY INTENTIONAL HACKING OR ANY CRIMINAL ACTIVITY INVOLVED IN THIS. THIS IS STRAIGHTFORWARD COMPUTER GLITCH. ON THE GOOD SIDE WE HAD OUR TECHNICAL RESPONSE TEAM THAT GOT ON IT IMMEDIATELY. THEY RESTORED THE PROGRAMS. GOT THEM BACK ONLINE ACROSS THE BOARD. WE ARE STILL INVESTIGATING EXACTLY WHAT THE ROOT CAUSE IS. WE ARE FRUSTRATED TOO BUT WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO GET BETTER TO MAKE SURE THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. GRIFF: ONE MORE TOPIC, COMMISSIONER, I WANT TO GET. GOOGLE WEIGHING INTO POLITICS PRESSURING THE COMPANY TO NO LONGER WORK WITH ICE AND BORDER PATROL, YOUR REACTION, SIR?>>THAT KIND OF RHETORIC IS FRUSTRATING. IT’S ABSOLUTELY IRRESPONSIBLE. IT’S MISINFORMED. IT’S NOT FACTUAL AND A LOT OF THAT IS STRAIGHT OUT LIES. LET ME TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT THE TRUTH IS I JUST RETURNED FROM EL PASO WHERE I TOURED 175,000 SQUARE FOOT FACILITY TO HELP WITH OVERCROWDING. IT’S ONE OF SEVERAL ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST BORDER. WHAT THE TRUTH IS AND WHEN THEY WALK IN THERE, THEY ARE GOING TO SEE THAT THESE FAMILIES AND CHILDREN ARE RECEIVING THE HOT MEAL. THEY ARE GOING TO SEE CHILDREN SETTING IN FRONT OF FLAT SCREEN TVs WATCHING CARTOONS. THEY ARE GETTING MEDICAL ATTENTION. THAT’S THE TRUTH. THIS KIND OF RHETORIC IS IRRESPONSIBLE, RECKLESS AND IT’S A LIE. GRIFF: THANK YOU ACTING COMMISSIONER. I HAVE SEEN IT MYSELF. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
