Eagle Pass, Texas sheriff slams Biden admin for lack of federal help

September 25, 2023

President Joe Biden and his weak administration have dropped the ball in a major and dangerous way on the illegal immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border.

According to Breitbart, those who have to deal with the problem on a daily basis, such as Maverick County, TX Sheriff Tom Schmerber, are getting fed up with the lack of federal assistance.

The limited resources of small towns across Texas have been chewed up by a continued influx of illegal aliens that the Biden administration seems to not care about. Crime continues to rise, as a result.

The situation in Eagle Pass, Texas, is worsening by the day, as tens of thousands of illegals pour across the border into the small border town, overwhelming the entire community without much in the way of acknowledgment from the White House.

"I never thought I would see in Eagle Pass all kinds of immigrants coming through here, a lot of countries. And just like — they’re not afraid. They were just walking in line, crossing the river, walking in line, and being processed by the officers, immigration and troopers," Sheriff Schmerber said.

The concerned sheriff added, "We’re going to get more waves, and I am worried."

And he's not exaggerating. Fox News and very few others have been at the border covering the continued influx, while most of the Biden-friendly media pretends it's not happening or writes it off as a "right-wing conspiracy."

The videos don't lie.

NBC’s Top Story host Tom Llamas asked the sheriff, "Secretary Mayorkas is going to go to McAllen, TX with the president of Honduras. Does it bother you that they’re not coming here to Eagle Pass?"

"It does, because we’ve been here — this problem’s been here for two years now, and it’s getting worse. And I haven’t seen a higher official like the vice president, whoever it is, coming here to Eagle Pass. I know the vice president went to El Paso a long time ago, but never here. This is where they belong –."

The sheriff was asked if he's receiving any federal help to deal with the problem, which is draining resources of local law enforcement and first responders. He said the only help he's received as far as his department's operations has come from the state.

"Nothing. The only help we are getting is from the state, the governor. He helped us with, of course, grant money. And with that money, we hired a few more deputies and equipment that we needed. And we have a second grant this month…so we can get more equipment and troopers," Sheriff Schmerber said.

Only time will tell if the feds step in at some point, but sadly, it might already be too late.
