Watch: Appropriations Committee Member Says Immigration Crisis Is Worse Than We Thought

Last updated:

During a Fox News interview, Tuesday John Hoeven made frightening revelations about the full depth of the Biden border crisis. Hoeven, a Senate Appropriations Committee member says that the current influx is so out of control that the court dates being issued to the current immigrants being released are years away.  Hoeven adds that this issue isn’t just affecting illegals at the southern border. As Hoeven noted, the process has become such a mess that many immigrants are being processed through makeshift centers set up under a bridge:

“What is happening is in some cases they were being processed under the bridge. We saw hundreds and hundreds of children and mothers and they essentially didn’t go to the processing center,” said Hoeven, who toured the border with 17 other Republican senators hosted by the border patrol union.

“They were actually — they go into town and like I said, are given a bus ticket and off they go. They’re given a notice that they’re supposed to appear in court, but in many cases that’s not for three or four years,” the North Dakota lawmaker continued.

The problem only gets worse under Biden. According to Hoeven, the crisis is made worse by the long gap between entry and the decision on whether or not immigrants will be given asylum which is only bringing in more migrants:

“So think about it. They’re being sent into the interior of the country. They may have a contact, may be a family member — or maybe even the cartel because the cartels are operating in our country as well as on the border…Of course they don’t come back for that.”

Host Neil Cavuto noted, in that regard, that as the crisis continues, migrants from outside the so-called Central American “triangle countries” are attempting to enter the United States as well.

He said some migrants have come from as far as Eritrea, on the Red Sea in East Africa.

During his trip, Hoeven told Cavuto, he and the other lawmakers viewed things the Biden administration “wouldn’t [show]”, he claimed.

“We were in the Rio Grande Valley and saw the trails where minors were coming over the border illegally. They’re processed for 8 or 9 hours … and sent into McAllen. They’re turned over to NGO’s and they get on a bus and they go a off to wherever in the country.

“So once they’re here and they go into the country, that’s it. They’re here. That’s why they’re coming. They know that’s what’s going on.”

Hoeven was just one of the many Republican Senators that traveled to the border to asses the damage alongside Texas Senator Ted Cruz. The Senators have quickly become public enemy number one for Democrats and the mainstream media.
