CBS Whines Texas National Guard is Cracking Down on Illegal Migrants

News & Politics

Tuesday night’s CBS Evening News took to whining about how Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott was forced to send the Texas National Guard to the border to deal with the illegal migrant crisis that the Biden administration allowed to unfold and is apparently willing to let get even worse with the pending end to Title 42. 

After sending correspondent Omar Villafranca to the border, he reported back a big sob story about how the Texas National Guard has been sent to the border and is making it more difficult for illegals to flood across the border and into our country.

“A dramatic scene on Texas’ U.S/Mexico border,”  Villafranca observed before adding that “before sunrise, Texas National Guard troops arrived to put a razor wire fence alongside the banks of the Rio Grande. Texas Governor Greg Abbott sending 400 more National Guard troops to the El Paso border in an attempt to block the flow of migrants into the U.S.” 

He even complained that the National Guard is “getting on a bullhorn every once in a while and telling people you can’t be here. You being here on this side is illegal, you need to move on and they’re telling them to go to different points of entry. But what we found out when they’re going to other points of entry, Customs and Border Patrol is not letting anybody in.”

Attempting to turn illegal immigrants into sympathetic figures, Villafranca interviewed a woman from Venezuela who was attempting to sneak into the United States.

“27-year-old Yaneisy Martinez, and her three children wait to cross the border, they’ve been traveling for three months from Venezuela. They would give us the opportunity to come in, she says, only to put up a fence instead,” Villafranca bemoaned. 

“Her 3-year-old daughter is sick in her arms. She hopes to get to her brother in North Carolina. I asked her what did she want to tell President Biden and she said she want a chance to get inside.”

NORAH O’DONNELL: Let’s turn now to that looming crisis at the southern border. New tonight the Biden administration is asking the Supreme Court to end restrictions on migrants hoping to gain asylum here in the U.S. The Trump administration had put a place in rule during the pandemic that expelled migrants without allowing them to seek asylum. CBS’s Omar Villafranca is in El Paso where the Texas National Guard has now arrived. 

OMAR VILLAFRANCA: A dramatic scene on Texas’ U.S/Mexico border. Before sunrise, Texas National Guard troops arrived to put a razor wire fence alongside the banks of the Rio Grande. Texas Governor Greg Abbott sending 400 more National Guard troops to the El Paso border in an attempt to block the flow of migrants into the U.S. 

They’re getting on a bullhorn every once in a while and telling people you can’t be here. You being here on this side is illegal, you need to move on and they’re telling them to go to different points of entry. But what we found out when they’re going to other points of entry, Customs and Border Patrol is not letting anybody in.  

This was one of the border crossings a week ago. This is what it looks like tonight. A line of humvees, armed soldiers, and Texas State Troopers. Thousands of migrants have crossed this area in the last few days. Despite the uncertainty of ending Title 42, the city is putting plans in motion to house as many as ten thousand migrants. Even considering opening their convention centers and schools not currently in use. Meanwhile, in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, 27-year-old Yaneisy Martinez, and her three children wait to cross the border, they’ve been traveling for three months from Venezuela. 

They would give us the opportunity to come in, she says, only to put up a fence instead. 

Her 3-year-old daughter is sick in her arms. She hopes to get to her brother in North Carolina. I asked her what did she want to tell President Biden and she said she want a chance to get inside. Shelters in El Paso will be packed again tonight with hundreds of migrants. The White House has asked the Supreme Court that if they’re going to let Title 42 expire, at least wait till after Christmas. Norah?
