During an appearance on Mobile, AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MS) discussed his recent trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, which he described as “an invasion” that was overwhelming the Border Patrol.
 
“Just got back in from the border yesterday,” he said. “We went to El Paso, so we were right there on the United States-Mexican boundary. I can tell — you hear from the administration, they’re saying our borders are closed, right? They’re not. We basically have open borders. We have an invasion at our southern border, unlike any that I have seen. The Border Patrol — they’re telling is ever since we repealed the migrant protection protocol, and if we repeal Title 42, they’re not going to be able to handle the influx.”
 
“Every night, hundreds of single young men are trying to run around the fence, go through the fence, jump the fence, overwhelming our Border Patrol,” Palazzo continued. “Then you have the hundreds, if not thousands, of just unaccompanied minors showing up. And you know we do not send home an unaccompanied minor. They go straight into the CBP program, and then they’re going to be released to either not-for-profits or to a sponsor family somewhere in the United States. ”
 
The Mississippi Republican lawmaker blamed President Joe Biden and warned the entire country could be facing the same problems as the states along the border have faced for decades....

Mr Farage, who following the successful Brexit campaign has worked to uncover the growing boat migrant crisis in the English Channel, said: “What I’m looking at here, in particular, are those that don’t get caught, those that finish up directly going into the drug trade and other criminal actions.
 
“I’ve covered this issue before back in the United Kingdom; I’ve covered the boats coming into the United Kingdom, the lack of coverage from mainstream media.”
