The Biden administration has insisted that there is no crisis at the southern border — video shows otherwise.
Congressman Tony Gonzalez (R-TX) shared video footage that he took recently of a severely overcrowded migrant processing facility in El Paso, Texas.
A reminder, DHS does not allow media into these Border Patrol facilities, so the only way we are able to see images like this are through leaks or members of Congress who visit and are willing to share photos/videos, like @RepTonyGonzales did in this case. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/7HJ55993pe

El Paso’s Mayor Oscar Leeser, a Democrat, (reluctantly) declared a state of emergency on Saturday because the influx of migrants is straining the city’s law enforcement so badly that the city is no longer able to keep residents safe.
“I said from the beginning that I would call it when I felt that either our asylum seekers or community were not safe,” Leeser said, according to KFOX14.
“That’s not the way we want to treat people and by calling a state of an emergency it gives us the ability today to be able to do what we couldn’t do until we called it,” Leeser added…
“We know the influx on Wednesday [December 21] will be incredible it will be huge. On Wednesday our numbers will go from 2,500 to 4,000, 5,000, maybe 6,000,” the mayor said.

Just last week, the New York Post reported that Mayor Leeser was refusing to declare a state of emergency because
El Paso’s mayor rejected renewed calls Monday to declare a local state of emergency despite thousands of migrants continuing to flood in and overwhelm the city…
…Leeser has ignored calls for months to declare a state of emergency, insisting he has been told by the Biden administration they will help the city out if it is patient. However, it has since become the number one border crossing in the country, seeing 53,000 people attempt to cross in October, and that number is only set to grow.

This turnaround is pretty huge and comes just days before Title 42 provisions are set to expire on December 21.
On Sunday, Rep. Tony Gonzales appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” and spoke about the declaration of a state of emergency in El Paso — something normally reserved for natural disasters — as necessary because they are currently experiencing “a hurricane of migrants” crossing the border and overwhelming the city.
Rep. Gonzalez explained that if the Biden admin doesn’t start taking the crisis at the border seriously, the alternative could be shutting down bridges and border crossing points.
"It is a very dire situation in El Paso," Republican Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales tells @margbrennan on the conditions migrants are facing after crossing the border.

El Paso, Texas has become the go-to destination for migrants illegally crossing the border, but the Biden administration continues to act as though this is all normal.
If Biden is “doing the work at the Border” the way that the White House Spokesmuppet claims… then why have border encounters steadily increased for his entire term in office?
Over the weekend, Fox News showed video of thousands of migrants waiting to cross the border into the already overwhelmed city of El Paso. This was what Rep. Gonzalez was referring to on his “Face the Nation” appearance.
The El Paso sector of the southern border has faced at least 139,000 migrant encounters since Oct. 1, a 255% increase over the same time last year, according to Customs and Border Protection sources. And over the weekend, there was a three-day average of 2,500 migrant encounters, according to Border Patrol.
The recent influx is a record for El Paso, according to El Paso Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino,
Shelters, churches and missions all over the city are at full capacity, forcing some migrants to sleep on the streets, in the airport or wherever they can protect themselves from the winter cold, an El Paso homeless shelter director told Fox News.

The Biden administration is the dog in this popular meme:
Not only is everything just “fine” — this is the Biden administration’s “humane” border policy.
Overcrowded facilities with people stacked like cordwood after women and girls raped are by cartel members on the dangerous journey and fentanyl smuggled into the country while border agents are dealing with human smuggling — this is all “humane” to Clueless Joe and Cacklin’ Kamala.
Come on, man! You know that “Running The Country Is As Easy As Riding A Bike.
