Texas Sheriff Blasts Biden for Forcing National Guard to Pick Up Trash at Border
Jackson County Sheriff says move is 'embarrassing'
Jackson County Sheriff Andy Louderback slammed Joe Biden for his open border policies, which cumulated in Texas National Guard troops being forced to pick up trash at the southern border.
Louderback told Fox News:
“How embarrassing, to highlight the Biden policies and the current administration, on our National Guard, our Texas National Guard, picking up garbage."
“We find these places littered completely with trash."
"And on the border, it’s an incredible amount of tonage of clothing and trash and water bottles, backpacks, you know, just the entire scene is just littered with things.”
Louderback said it was “incomprehensible” that the southern border “is in the shape that it is in now.”
“Maybe if we could get the president or the vice president down there, they maybe could see for themselves and would have to admit what they caused down there, what they caused here in Texas,” he added.
The sheriff's remarks come as Biden's border crisis spirals out of control as thousands of migrants flood into the US.
The Biden administration has now forced the National Guard to pick up trash.
Louderback said the Texas National Guard has way important issues to deal with, like human trafficking rather than picking up trash.
“This is a major travel route, the number one human trafficking here in the United States, a tremendous hub for human trafficking and narcotics,” Louderback said.
Indeed, President Donald Trump's former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Biden is giving a "green light" to child and sex trafficking.
"Facilitating the criminal cartels making millions of dollars, facilitating the sexual assault, which 31% of women who make this trip get sexually assaulted. Children are going to die," Tom Homan said.
Texas had the second-highest number of reported cases of human trafficking in the United States, according to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
Border Patrol encountered over 172,000 migrants in March alone, according to Customs and Border Protection data.
In March, Biden's approval rating on immigration plummeted as his administration fails to handle the spiraling crisis at the border adequately.
A new NPR/Marist poll published on Tuesday shows that just a third of Americans say they approve of Biden's handling of the issue of immigration and border security.
A massive 53 percent of those polled say they disapprove of his performance.
