Video From Texas Congresswoman Shows Migrants in 'Profoundly Inadequate' Facility

Texas Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne and her team recorded on March 29 footage showing what she described as “profoundly inadequate” conditions inside a migrant facility in Donna, Texas.

Van Duyne said thousands of children were crammed in at the center as a “direct result” of what she called President Joe Biden’s “reckless actions.”

Van Duyne tweeted: “Border Patrol warned Biden what would happen if he chose to open the borders. They pleaded with him to stop a crisis before it started & he refused.”

Questioned regarding the situation at the US-Mexico border on March 25, Biden said officials were “sending back the vast majority of the families that are coming.”

Biden said that there was a seasonal variation to migrant movement: “There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March. That happens every year.”

NBC said the Donna center had a pandemic capacity of 250. However, 4,100 people were there on March 30. Over 3,400 of them were children, NBC said. Credit: Beth Van Duyne via Storyful
