We live in a very dangerous time for our country. And unless something changes soon, we have no hope.
And one Texas mayor’s desperate cry for help has served as a warning to the nation.
In a stark cry for help that echoes the frustrations of communities along the entire southern border, Eagle Pass, Texas Mayor Rolando Salinas painted a grim picture on Tuesday’s episode of CNN’s OutFront.
His message: the unaddressed surge of illegal immigration is crippling his city, and the lack of consequences for lawbreakers is fueling the crisis.
“There are no consequences,” Salinas declared.
“That’s why you have thousands of people coming in through my city.”
He described a relentless influx, with 2,000 to 3,000 individuals streaming across the border daily, overwhelming Eagle Pass’ resources and jeopardizing the well-being of its citizens.
The mayor’s frustration stemmed from the perception that swift processing, rather than effective deterrence, is the current model.
“People know they’re processing them quick,” he asserted, echoing a growing concern that lax enforcement emboldens further surges.
“So, until we start deporting people in large amounts, this will continue to keep going.”
Salinas’s message transcended his immediate community.
He implored national leaders to acknowledge the devastating impact this crisis has on border towns like Eagle Pass.
“This is unacceptable,” he charged, highlighting the unfair and unethical burden placed on his city’s shoulders.
The strain on resources, from healthcare to education, threatens the very fabric of the community.
The mayor’s plea for consequences resonated with a deep-seated conservative principle: upholding the rule of law.
“If somebody breaks a law, there needs to be a consequence,” he stated unequivocally.
The current lack of deterrents, he argued, sends a dangerous message, inviting continued lawlessness and jeopardizing the safety of both migrants and the communities they enter.
Salinas’s call to action resonated beyond immigration policy.
His emphasis on national security, economic strain, and community safety aligned with broader conservative concerns about unchecked migration and its ripple effects.
He concluded with a stark ultimatum: “Until we start deporting these people, they’re going to keep coming and they’re going to keep affecting the economy, the safety of my community.”
The mayor’s voice, amplified by national media, serves as a powerful reminder of the human cost of unaddressed border security.
His plea for a decisive response transcends partisan lines, urging a reassessment of current policies and a commitment to uphold the rule of law, protect communities, and secure the integrity of our borders.
Unfortunately for America, our current administration has no care at all for the safety or well-being of Americans.
Instead, Joe Biden and the radical Left are doing everything they can to ensure the complete and total destruction of America.
We must fight back against this corrupt administration, and we must vote in leaders who will serve the needs of this country.
