U.S. Border Patrol Agent told Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered that they have "lost control of the border."

Hector Garza, speaking on his role as vice-president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), declared, “We’ve lost control of the border, as we are right now.”

Garza added that a new plan is needed to correct problems that have seen control of the border being 'lost.'

Garza’s warning came a few days after President Donald Trump reportedly planned to issue the Insurrection Act to remove illegal immigrants from the US.

Trump intends to invoke “tremendous powers” of the act to remove illegal immigrants from the US.

The NBPC vice-president stated that his organization’s president, Brandon Judd, would be discussing new plans with the White House and its impact on the border.

“As it is right now, we are having a very hard time at the border,” Garza explained.

Last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham unveiled a new bill to stop asylum claims from Central America at the US border and return unaccompanied minors to their home countries.

The effort to stop the migration crisis is a "nightmare for smugglers,” Graham said.

“This is a godsend to stop the humanitarian disaster," he added.

But even though Garza’s comments seems worrying, there does seem to solutions being used to prevent the crisis at the border.

Faulkner challenged Garza's stance in the interview:

“You said, ‘We’ve lost control of the border,'" he asked.

“That is different from what reporting I’ve seen. What do you mean when you say you’ve ‘lost control?'”

Garza responded:

“Our Border Patrol chief has mentioned that over 50 percent of our agents are not securing the border and they’re now actually processing, transporting, and carrying for some of these asylum seekers,” he explained.

“But I would challenge that percentage. I would put that percentage somewhere in the range of 75 percent.”

“What we’re seeing is that we’re not securing the border,” he emphasized.

“We’re not out there catching those drug dealers, or those drug smugglers, or human smugglers."

In February, Border Patrol officials at the Tucson Sector admitted that Mexican cartels were 'exploiting' outdated border barriers in Arizona to transport their human cargo.

Officials highlighted surveillance footage which showed 103 migrants trekking through an anti-vehicle post and rail fence on the border west of the Lukeville Port of Entry.
