“You got to know how to use Title 8 — that is, you detain eight people, don’t let them in and then you deport people, and you show videos,” Cuellar said.
“All we do is see people coming in, but we don’t see any messages of people or videos of people going back.”
Cuellar said illegals “feel that they can get to the border, go to New York, go somewhere else and wait five years, maybe give a wrong address,” and fall into citizenship.
“There’s a resentment … growing among Hispanics and Democrats, because they followed the law and now we’re seeing people just jump the line and end up in New York and other places,” he said.
“My district is about 80 percent Hispanic Democratic, and guess what? When I go to church or when I go to the store, what are people telling me?” Cuellar said.
“‘Henry, you got to secure the border. We got to do something.’”
