A Del Rio, Texas, resident urged the Biden administration to mitigate the border disaster, arguing taxpayers are those to bear the burden of funding the administration’s “wide open” borders. Bea Vallejo joined “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to debate the matter saying, “We just don’t have the money.” 

“We have too many refugees coming into the state of Texas,” Vallejo said. “We’re running out of our funds because we’re being taxed on everything. The prices on everything are going up, and Biden is just sitting there doing nothing.”

Around 30,000 Haitian migrants had been encountered on the border in current weeks, with round 15,000 who had been tenting underneath a bridge in Del Rio. 


Many officers and residents in border cities have been overwhelmed by the shortage of sources as migrants have been dispersed elsewhere for processing. 

Thousands of migrants have been despatched throughout Texas to cities like Laredo, that are experiencing a extreme pressure on Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) processing capability.

“We need for him to take control of this. We’ve got immigration laws on the books and we want him to take them and use them.”

“How many people can we afford to keep in the United States?” Vallejo questioned. “We’re being taxed and then we have to we have to supply stuff for them? No, it’s just not fair on us.”

Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbott introduced over the weekend the Texas National Guard is “gearing up” to seal its southern border as reviews declare one other migrant caravan is headed towards the United States. 

“That border is wide open,” Vallejo said. “Nobody was stopping anything.” 

The Biden administration has come underneath hearth in current months for its dealing with of the disaster on the southern border, as encounters have topped 200,000 for each July and August.
