Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst made comments in the media, including…
I saw this at Breitbart:
Dewhurst asserted that the media’s portrayal that the majority of the migrants entering the country are children is dishonest. “The media would have you believe that the whole crisis on the border is exclusively about unaccompanied children,” he said. “It is not just about unaccompanied children — unaccompanied children represent but a tiny fraction of the illegals who cross our border every day, according to the Border Patrol.”
There is a huge “criminal element” at the border that includes significant gang activity, according to Dewhurst.
“We’ve seen estimates that at least a quarter of those apprehended have criminal records,” he added.
There are many mixed reports floating around. I have read that there aren’t as many children as claimed. I have read the opposite. I have read that many are fleeing their own countries because of violence. I have read the opposite.
One this is obvious: Mexican authorities are trying to make sure that they get to the US border and then get across into las provincias pérdidas.
I would like to have the facts.
I think we all agree that when people are in distress for food, water, clothing, shelter, they need some immediate attention. That doesn’t mean that we have to be entirely blind to who they are after they have received immediate attention.
Who is coming across? Why? Are there others, slinking in along with the central Americans? Yemenis, perhaps?
