NBC Reporter at Border: We Knew This Would Happen Because Mexico Isn’t Enforcing Immigration Laws

via NBC News

NBC News correspondent Guad Venegas reported on the significant influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in Eagle Pass, Texas.

He highlighted the unprecedented size of the migrant crowds, which have surpassed anything he has seen before, and noted similar situations in other border areas.

Venegas expressed concern about the strain on resources and the potential humanitarian crisis, citing examples of overwhelmed hospitals and first responders. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

He emphasized the challenges faced by customs and border protection in processing asylum seekers amidst the surge in numbers.

“Two things to keep in mind. One is that we saw large groups in Mexico, about a month to two months ago, making their way to the U.S.”

“A lot of us knew this would happen because immigration isn’t enforcing the laws inside of Mexico. So that’s one thing.”

“Another thing is these crowds here in Eagle Pass have never been this large during my reporting. This is the most people I’ve ever seen in Eagle Pass, and other reporters, colleagues working other parts of the border in Arizona, in Jacumba near San Diego tell me the same thing.”

“We have these conversations and the conversation is always, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen this number of migrants arriving.’ And we know from the reports coming from the government with these numbers.”

“So we have the number of apprehensions, the numbers of encounters, everything spiking, so we don’t know what this will mean moving forward, we just know that the numbers are much larger as the resources are spread thin.”

“I’ll give you an example of what can happen when we have these surges. Yesterday we saw maybe four to five of these migrants carried out on stretchers by some of the first responders that are part of Border Patrol.”

“They then got taken to a medical tent and then the Congressman, when U.S. congressman visited this area – Tony Gonzalez – said that the hospitals are also overwhelmed.”

“So, if someone calls 911 and needs to go to the hospital, that hospital might be overwhelmed because they’re helping a lot of these migrants.”

“So you have that humanitarian crisis happening as well. That’s aside from everything that customs and border protection has to do to process the migrants that are here seeking asylum.”
