Eagle Pass, Texas – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) along with U.S. Senators Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) and Katie Britt (R-Ala.) witnessed firsthand human smugglers leading illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexico border.
“President Joe Biden has created a humanitarian and national security crisis at our southern border,” said Senators Blackburn, Hyde-Smith and Britt. “In Eagle Pass, we witnessed dozens of illegal immigrants cross into the United States. Over 1,000 immigrants were detained in the Del Rio Sector alone on Sunday evening. Local, state and federal law enforcement made it clear to us that to get the situation under control, they need President Biden to do his job and enforce the immigration laws on the books.”
