(The Post Millennial) – A Texas county that has witnessed more than 30,000 migrants cross this month alone is suing President Biden for his “failure to enforce the law.” According to Fox News, Val Verde County announced Tuesday night that it is joining neighbouring counties to push the Biden administration to take action.
“We’ve talked about immigration reform for as long as I can remember. Both parties have had control of Washington at one point or another over the last 20 years, and we have failed to do anything about it other than create the mess that we have today,” Val Verde County Commissioner Beau Nettleton said. “It is inexcusable,” he continued.
Nettleton calls on other counties to join Val Verde in seeking a resolution to the poor US immigration policies, currently causing the most significant influx of migrants at the southern border in more than twenty years. For context, the US Customs and Border Protection have reported more than 1.5 million illegal bordering crossings during the fiscal year of 2021.
“I don’t have the answer as to whether a lawsuit solves this problem, but it draws attention to this problem,” Nettleton said. “They took the same oath of office that I did, which was to uphold the constitution…they need to comply with that oath and do their job and stop this mess.”
“I am all for people coming into this country legally – that’s what built this country,” Nettleton continued. “This is not a legal process, this is not the right way to do it.”
