It’s not unusual for congressmen in border districts to raise the roof over unchecked illegal immigration but this time it’s drastically different. Democrat lawmaker Henry Cuellar isn’t drinking the Kool-Aid. He actually dared to blow the whistle on national TV that the Imperial Palace is covering up the numbers.
A Whistle-blowing Democrat
Everything about this story turns the normal narrative upside down. When a democrat blows the whistle it’s supposed to make trouble for deplorable nationalists, not the Imperial Palace. Representative Henry Cuellar won’t be eating anything that doesn’t come out of a can he opened with his own can-opener for a while. He’s afraid he might end up suicided.
He dared to accuse Imperial Leader Joe Biden of “purposely withholding” statistics detailing the number of illegals being released into the heartland of America.
The border district Democrat has had enough. When Faux news interviewed Cuellar about a recent statement from former acting ICE director Tom Homan, the Blue Dog congressman shocked liberals right out of their chairs by agreeing wholeheartedly.
The Biden regime is “facilitating illegal entry.” That’s what you call it when you don’t actually detain anyone. As far as Covid testing, don’t get him started.
“These are things that I’ve been talking about for a while. Is Border Patrol checking the the folks coming in? No.” Cuellar is upset that the local communities are expected to pick up the slack, and there isn’t much slack.
“Look what happened in 2019. This is where Greyhound dropped people off all over the place.” He admits that the Democrat party can’t blame Trump for this one. “people are gonna be dropped all over the United States, with not being tested as they get on those Greyhound buses or airplanes.”
Coming to Laredo
When asked about the big team that the Imperial Palace is sending down to “assess the situation,” Cuellar not only is aware of it, he invited them long ago. “I’ve been asking them to come down.” A few of them have taken him up on it but not many. “They have not called too many people down here.”
The Democrat lawmaker “learned from local folks that they are in Donna, Texas, and then they’re going to come to Laredo, my hometown.”
Before they head on over to inspect the facilites at Carrizo Springs, Cuellar is “gonna have a lot of tough questions to the (DHS) secretary,” even if he is a Democrat. The DHS chief is also scheduled for a grilling in front of the committee Cuellar sits on, Homeland Appropriations.
“They’re not taking the time to talk to local folks. The problem is they’re listening to immigration activists, which is okay. But they got to listen to the local communities.”
In February alone, we let in 100,000 individuals. The Palace wants to downplay the “crisis” as a “challenge.” Even the Democrat side of the aisle is beginning to get upset.
“Yeah, look, we can play with words. Is that a challenge? Or is it a crisis? Let’s look at the numbers.” He doesn’t care “what we call it, but I can tell you this, those numbers of people that are being released, they’re purposely withholding that information. They’ve been told not to withhold that information.” He’s seen it all before. “Don’t let the local community know what you’re doing, where they’re striving to bring people in from the valley, process them and Laredo, release them at a bus station.”
