A Texas Democrat who has been critical of Biden administration policies at the U.S.-Mexico border lashed out this week, accusing the administration of posting misleading photos from a migrant processing facility. U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar accused the Department of Homeland Security of trying to create the impression the facility in Donna, Texas, was emptying out, when in fact the migrant youths who had been located there were simply moved to a nearby location. “All they’re doing is, they’re moving kids from one tent to the other tent and saying, ‘Oh, they’re not in the Border Patrol (custody),’” Cuellar said, according to Border Report. The youths were relocated to nearby tents operated by the Department of Health and Human Services, the congressman told the outlet. “But they’re right next door,” Cuellar added about the migrants. “They’re just next door in HHS.”
Former U.S. Attorney Special Assistant, Chuck Smith joined “Fort Wayne’s Morning News” to discuss the issue.
