Over the weekend, the mayor of Uvalde—a Texas town near the Mexican border—appeared on Tucker Carlson Today to give a closeup analysis of the border crisis.

Mayor Don McLaughlin discussed how Biden’s border policy has resulted in virtually open borders, leading to a crime increase and endangering everyone from police to school children.

“We’re having to lock down our schools … about once a week, because almost every one of those cars has armed” occupants, he stated. McLaughlin blamed the Biden administration for its incompetence on the border crisis. He went on to debunk Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas’ claim that the border is “closed,” pointing out that Mayorkas’ statement that the “90 percent” turnaway rate for illegal aliens only counts Mexican nationals. 

Excluding Mexico, the Del Rio border sector near Uvalde has recorded illegal migrants hailing from 67 nations. 

McLaughlin proposed his own solution, suggesting to “shut the border down and make them come through the right way. There is a process to come through, and let’s do it the right way.”

It was not just federal Democrats abandoning him, McLaughlin added; Gov. Greg Abbott and both Texan senators, Cruz and Cornyn, have failed to answer calls to their offices. While he was able to speak to their aides, he was never able to reach those sworn to represent him. 

“I can’t get my own senators to call me back. As an elected official, I cannot get a call back,” he stated.

Carlson lobbed his own criticism toward the Texas governor. 

“Gov. Abbott strikes me as a total fraud,” said Carlson, challenging McLaughlin to prove him otherwise. “He could just say, ‘This is our state. It’s the state of Texas, and we’re not putting up with this crap, and we’re gonna seal our border because it’s our state.’
