A Fox News crew led by reporter Griff Jenkins encountered asylum seekers and illegal immigrants from time to time, crossing the Rio Grande from Tamaulipas, Mexico, into the state of Texas near Del Rio.
In the “Five,” Jenkins said about 70 people, most of them Venezuelans, had crossed the river while on the U.S. side in the water for the past hour.
An elderly woman told Jenkins that her son had been killed by “motorcycle gangs” of controversial leader Nicolas Maduro. The U.S. does not recognize Maduro as the president of an oil-rich country, but rather as opposition leader Juan Guaydo; After the disputed 2018 elections.
Shortly before the start of the Five, Jenkins finally persuaded a smuggler named Juan to talk to him. Juan, wearing a T-shirt and sitting in the middle of a shallow spot in the Rio Grandes; He watched the Mexican bank and told him he was not afraid of the Border Service or the Mexican police.
Juan also told Jenkins that President Biden could claim the border was “closed” – but in reality he was wrong.
“He said‘ no, no, it’s open, ’” the reporter recalled.
Geraldo Rivera, a starter in the Five, said Jenkins’ speech was an example of what Vice President Harris could see if he served as border king and visited the area.
“It’s no coincidence that you’ve faced a critical avalanche after your first trip to Guatemala, then Mexico, when you’ve done the right thing and seen the problem manifest itself,” he said. “He’s announcing his victory, but when the truth is so contradictory about what he’s really achieved, it seems like a gap.”
Host Jesse Watters agrees that usually illegal immigrants do not cross brutally in groups that appear in the middle of the day:
“I’ve never seen people like a lazy river during the day, I just turned myself into a border guard. It’s never happened before. Usually, you see border guards pull people out of cacti at night and come.” you know, I feel bad for the people I meet, but it’s something distracting, ”he said.
