Host Trey Gowdy invited McCaul to discuss the federal court ruling to “enforce and implement” the Migrant Protection Protocols otherwise known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy. This policy meant that migrants had to be sent back to Mexico to have their immigration cases heard. They were not allowed to be released in the United States.
Despite ongoing border issues, the Biden administration tried several times to repeal the policy. McCaul is the head of the Foreign Affairs Committee. He stated that the current border crisis was a self-inflicted injury. “
“It is out of control. McCaul stated that it was a self-inflicted injury. On day one, President Biden ended the Remain in Mexico policy and the Migrant Protection Protocols. This was a good move. “
” This caravan is a collection of tens to thousands of migrants, people who are not border-locked and threaten the border patrol by threatening to invade their territory. This state has been home to me all of my adult life. As you all know, I served as a federal prosecutor and chaired Homeland Security. This is the worst that I’ve ever seen. McCaul said, “It is only going to get worse Trey,” and that it would not end soon.
McCaul also lamented that President Joe Biden likely did not realize the full consequences on rolling back previous migrant policies and simply dismantled laws “because it had [Donald] Trump’s name on it. “
” I believe it was the plan. You can see that the traffickers began to realize the law was going to be changed when they returned to the campaign. They began moving the children up to the border. It became a problem and a self-fulfilling prophecy. McCaul stated that they didn’t realize the implications of rescinding it on Day One, simply because Trump was on it.
However, McCaul also noted that many Hispanic citizens around the border do not agree with these Democrat policies and instead call for “law and order.” This isn’t resonating back home. They are looking for law and order. It’s also interesting to note that I found in the border of my state the Hispanic population wanting security. They are in search of law and order. They hold conservative beliefs. They have conservative values.
On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is ready to re-instate the Remain in Mexico policy by mid-November. This came despite the Biden administration’s continued efforts to roll back the protocols.
