Rep. Michele Bachmann, after a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, writes that she saw someone smuggled across the Rio Grande, “in broad daylight,” and that the illegal-immigration situation is worse than she’d imagined.
In a newsletter report on her trip, she says:
“I knew that the border crisis was serious, but nothing could have prepared me for just how bad this situation truly is.”
She blames the problems on the Obama administration.
While the popular media narrative has been to focus on the children who came here alone, it is only a small fraction of the growing problem along the southern border.
My heart breaks for the unaccompanied children, but officials told us that 80 percent of the people entering the country illegally are not women and children—they are males over the age of 14.
She says she took cell phone video of an apparent human smuggling operation; her video is included in a post on Breitbart.com.
