Leaked pics show overcrowded Border Patrol facilities in Texas
Breitbart Texas has obtained photos showing overcrowded and overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol processing centers in the Rio Grande Valley.
Cells meant to hold 20 are now housing 40 or more illegal aliens, more and more of whom are arriving from Central American countries, and many unaccompanied minors. See more photos at Breitbart.com or at the San Francisco Gate, which has published more than 40 photos.
As Twitchy reported earlier this week, there are so many illegal immigrants coming across the border in Texas, the Department of Homeland Security has begun bussing them to Arizona — a practice decried by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.
In a statement issued Friday, Gov. Brewer blasted the Obama administration:
I am disturbed and outraged that President Obama’s administration continues to implement this dangerous and inhumane policy, meanwhile neglecting to answer crucial questions our citizens demand and deserve. What I learned from federal officials today only raises more questions about this operation, and the few answers I did receive have only heightened my concerns. Citizens demand — and so should the media — the reason for this massive influx of illegal crossings and the cost to taxpayers for having to deal with the crisis created by the President.
Not only does the federal government have no plan to stop this disgraceful policy, it also has no plan to deal with the endless waves of illegal aliens once they are released here. If the Obama administration put half the effort into securing our border as it has invested to institute this operation, our state and nation would not be facing this situation. This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure — now apparently intentionally — while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable.
