Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas blasted the Biden administration over the border crisis during a Friday afternoon appearance on Fox News.

“They’re just not on the same page when they say the border’s closed. It’s not closed. Last year we had 1.7 million individuals that came in. I think at the end of this fiscal year, we’ll probably have maybe 2.3 million,” Cuellar told Fox News host Neil Cavuto. “That is almost 4 million individuals in just two years. Then if you count the 400, 500,000 get-aways, you’re talking about 4.5 million individuals. You have to have repercussions. If you don’t have repercussions … this is where my friend Tony Gonzales and myself are on the same page. There has to be repercussions at the border. Otherwise, they’ll keep coming.”

Just under 3.5 million migrants have crossed the southern border since January 2021, according to data from United States Customs and Border Protection.

The Biden administration asked some journalists with U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) to help process migrants in July.
