(LibertySociety.com) – In an exclusive interview with Newsmax, Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., discussed the situation at the southern border and whom he believes calls the shots, and it’s not the Biden administration. For years now, but especially within the last several months, many lawmakers have pointed out the way that cartels exploit migrants and traffic drugs and weapons into the United States during congressional hearings with officials from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Customs & Border Protection (CBP).
During the interview, Senator Tuberville held nothing back when expressing his outrage at the border crisis, stating, “The cartels are running it. They’re controlling it every day.” He also criticized DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, calling out his claims about having the situation under control, adding that he believes the active-duty troops that were sent by the Pentagon at the request of DHS and President Biden were only there to “get them in quicker.” Although the number of apprehensions has reportedly decreased since Title 42 was lifted, some critics still claim the Biden administration’s policies are skewing the numbers, with many people seeking entry into the country utilizing the CBP One app to obtain approval instead of having to be processed at the ports of entry.
Back in March 2023, Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, brought attention to the color-coded wristbands that are used by the various cartels to keep up with the amount of money each migrant owes them while leading them to their ultimate indentured servitude of labor or sex slavery to pay off their debt. He also questioned Mayorkas about the number of children who have met the same fate after being trafficked to the border, with Mayorkas indicating he did not know what the wristbands were and refusing to provide the number of children who have been exploited by the cartels. Senators Tuberville and Cruz are not alone in their pursuit of fixing the border crisis, but there has been no movement in Congress thus far.
