After touring the border again in South Texas... the border remains open: @CBP is outmanned & outgunned by the Gulf Cartel while operating catch-&-release processing centers... leaving only a handful of agents actually on patrol! #EndBorderCrisisNow (1/x)
Of course, the criticisms leveled at @CBP are largely false... the centers are clean, with food, hygiene products, doctors, and children /family units are processed generally quickly... BECAUSE THEY ARE CAUGHT & RELEASED. #EndBorderCrisisNow (2/x)
Of almost 900,000 people apprehended on southern border since 10/1/2018 - ignoring hundreds of thousands of “got aways” - almost 600,000 have been or soon will be caught & released as family units or UAC’s (unaccompanied children). (3/x)

Just visited the @ICEgov facility run by GEO in Aurora, CO, where last night people who disrespect the USA stormed the facility & took down Old Glory and put up a flag from Mexico. Well - she flies again today. #EndBorderCrisisNow #OldGloryFlies (1/x)
I was given a full tour of the facility. 1200 in detention. 80% from current border surge, heavily from Texas & Arizona... which means interior enforcement is now being harmed. @HouseDemocrats know this and do not care. (2/x)
There are people from 57 countries. Mexico only 29%. 11% from area around India, folks from Middle East, Cuba, Africa, all over... almost all coming thru Mexico. They’ll be here about 55 days on average... #StateOfTheBorder (3/x)

Today, @HouseDemocrats introduced their border supplemental bill in response to the request from @realDonaldTrump & the pressure applied by the @freedomcaucus. We are still reviewing the text of the Senate & House versions. Initial observations: (1/x) #EndBorderCrisisNow
While we all desperately want $ for humanitarian relief, Senate GOP appears to be moving a supplemental that will very likely worsen the crisis, & the House Dems’ version is worse. Both will further incentivize traffickers, cartels, & perpetuate catch & release... (2/x)
The senate and house bills provide little to no funding for additional beds for adults or families. Beds are critical for proper screening, proper care, & proper enforcement to drive down the incentives for future flow. (3/x)
