Rep. Yvette Herrell to Newsmax: Biden Admin Created Border ‘Disaster’

Rep. Yvette Herrell, R-N.M., criticized the Biden administration on Newsmax for creating a ”disaster” on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Appearing Wednesday on “Stinchfield,” Herrell said: “We have not taken this [border situation] seriously as a nation. It did not have to be that way. And I think right now, [Vice President] Kamala Harris ought to come back to New Mexico, back to El Paso, Texas, and see the disaster that she’s actually created.”

According to Customs and Border Protection statistics, southwestern border encounters for August totaled 208,887. That number is down from July, which had 213,534 encounters.
