The news came on the same day Melugin tweeted regarding a large number of illegal immigrants entering the nation through Del Rio.

“A large majority of the migrants, including single adult men, have been let into the United States and taken into custody,” he wrote. “At least 200+ have been taken away in buses. More still coming, more still waiting.”

According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrolmore than one million illegal immigrants have crossed the nation’s southern border in Fiscal Year 2021, which runs from Oct. 1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021. That’s more than the number of people who crossed in all of Fiscal Year 2020.

Texas Democratic Sen. Ted Cruz blasted the Biden administration’s handling of the immigration crisis in a tweet last week, arguing for the government to continue Title 42 protections to keep illegal immigrants out of the nation to fight against COVID-19.

“By ending Title 42 protections, the Biden administration would be putting politics ahead of public safety and public health,” Cruz tweeted.

“That’s not right.”

BY ENDING TITLE 42 PROTECTIONS, THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION WOULD BE PUTTING POLITICS AHEAD OF PUBLIC SAFETY AND PUBLIC HEALTH.

THAT’S NOT RIGHT.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott also tweeted about the current immigration surge.

“For the past month, Border Patrol agents are encountering an average of 6,000 migrants each day,” he wrote.

The numbers continue to concern lawmakers in both parties, leading to increased calls for the Biden administration to make changes to curb illegal immigration numbers.
