The Democratic mayor of Laredo, Texas, lamented during a new interview that former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies were “working” and that President Biden has allowed the situation at the U.S. southern border to get out of control.
“We need to truly secure the border,” Mayor Pete Saenz told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview published Thursday. “It was working under Trump, call it whatever you want to call it, but it was working.”
“The border’s not secure and hasn’t been for a while,” he said. “We can’t continue this way, and I really haven’t seen any measures yet from Washington to remedy this.”
Saenz said his city’s public services are in desperate need of relief from the federal government after being overwhelmed with providing humanitarian aid, medical services and transportation for the thousands of migrants flooding into his city.
