The Democrat sheriff of Bexar County in Texas who claims to be criminally investigating Florida governor Ron DeSantis admitted Tuesday that assertions made by Biden officials that the border is secure are patently false.
As we highlighted yesterday, Javier Salazar announced that he has opened an investigation into DeSantis sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, prompting DeSantis and his office to respond that “Immigrants have been more than willing to leave Bexar County after being abandoned, homeless, and ‘left to fend for themselves.’ Florida gave them an opportunity to seek greener pastures in a sanctuary jurisdiction that offered greater resources for them, as we expected.”

DeSantis himself pointed out that no one seemed all that bothered when more than 50 migrants were found dead in a trailer in Bexar County itself.
One thing DeSantis and Salazar can agree on, however, is that calling the border ‘secure’ is an outright lie.
Appearing on CNN, Salazar commented “I don’t think that the border is as secure as the folks in D.C. might believe,” adding that “if the White House came down and got an eye on Texas and saw firsthand, which is what I’ve been asking them to do for a while, come down here and get an eye on the problem, I would beg to differ.”
“I don’t think that the border is as secure as what folks are maybe telling them,” the sheriff continued, adding “I think there’s some solutions to be had, but it’s going to start with somebody from D.C. making the trip down here and talking to us.”
