Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen said illegal entry into Texas by the most recent Central American migrant caravan “will not be tolerated.” The secretary also called on Congress to stop its “inexcusable failure to fully fund a needed physical barrier.”
“Approximately 2,000 aliens have arrived in northern Mexico as part of a ‘caravan’ seeking to cross the border into Texas,” Secretary Nielsen said in a written statement. “Illegal entry will not be tolerated and we stand ready to prevent it.”
Monday night, Breitbart News’ Editor in Chief Brandon Darby and border journalist Ildefonso Ortiz reported that nearly 2,000 Central American migrants were headed to the Mexican border cities of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, and Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. The border region consisting of hundreds of miles of the Rio Grande River has zero miles of physical border barriers.
