The mayhem continues at the southern border in Texas and the Biden administration doesn’t seem to have the answer to our immigration problems. In fact, the situation is only getting worse every day as illegal aliens and human smugglers try to venture into American territory.

Our law enforcers are being strained by the pressure brought by this chaos and there seems to be no end in sight to this madness.
