Cause in 2014 – not too many years ago – of the adult man crossing illegally into this country roughly 1% had a child with.
Today roughly 50% of the adult man crossing into the Rio Grande Sector have a child with them.
The reason for that – the fault of that is the US Congress because we have told the traffickers the human traffickers, we’ve told the drug traffickers, if you bring a child – that child is essentially a get out of jail free card.
Let me first of all start by thanking all of the good men and women at border patrol and ICE, CBP who risked their lives you all have an incredibly difficult job. It’s an incredibly important job and an awful lot of times it’s a thankless job.
And I want you to know on behalf of 28 million Texans we’re saying thank you.
We appreciate your standing up for this country.
We are seeing an absolute humanitarian crisis on the border.
This is unconscionable, what is happening.
The last month in the month of May over a hundred and forty-four thousand people were apprehended in one month in a single month.
This is a crisis.
And unfortunately this is a man-made crisis.
The responsibility for this crisis lies directly on the United States Congress – on loopholes that Congress has put into law, that are encouraging far too many people to make this arduous journey.
Today a group of reporters walked one mile in the blazing sun with water with medical assistance if we needed it.
Now imagine doing that if you were a four-year-old child.
Imagine doing that if you were a woman eight months pregnant.
Our policies the loopholes that Congress has put in place is encouraging people to risk their lives and even more tragically it’s putting children’s in harm’s way.
Earlier today I visited the central processing center here in the valley visited the McAllen, [Texas] Headquarters.
One of the more disturbing figures that I heard from the Chief is it 2014 – not too many years ago of the adult man crossing illegally into this country roughly 1% had a child with – today roughly 50% of the adult men crossing into the Rio Grande sector have a child with them.
The reason for that – the fault of that is the US Congress because we have told the traffickers the human traffickers we’ve told the drug traffickers if you bring a child – that child is essentially again out of jail free card.
It is an incentive from the United States Congress – go and find a small child and take that arduous journey – risk that child’s life and I’ll tell you far too many of those children face physical abuse, they face sexual abuse, they face neglect, and a growing problem we’re saying as fraudulent family units.
Groups that present as a family unit that tell the Border Patrol they’re their one happy family.
There was recently a pilot program done in the Rio Grande Valley using rapid DNA, to test family units that said they were family units. It found roughly 30% of those family units were fraudulent.
In other words the adults weren’t related to the kids – we’re hearing more and more reports of horrific things like children being rented, to those crossing illegally.
You know, this is a political environment where a lot of politicians like to talk about their enormous compassion, their enormous virtue – let me tell you!
Nobody who is compassionate – nobody who is virtuous – nobody who gives a damn about human beings would want even a single day to perpetuate these loopholes and put more children in harms way.
We ought to be angry. We ought to be angry at politicians that wash their hands of this problem!

You know every time I come down to the valley – every time I come down to the border I try to visit with border patrol agents – I try to visit with law enforcement local leaders.
What I’m hearing in South Texas, and all along the border – ‘this is a crisis that is overwhelming our ability to deal with it.’ ‘It’s overwhelming our infrastructure.’ ‘It’s overwhelming our healthcare system.’ ‘It’s overwhelming just here in the Rio Grande Valley.’
Chief told me, that on average, one women a day, they’re talking to the hospital to deliver a baby. On average, one a day.
Imagine, being eight – nine months pregnant making that journey.
I visited with too many South Texas Ranchers and Farmers, that have found the bodies of people abandoned – children, pregnant women abandoned to die.
It is time to end this crisis, and the only way we’ll end this crisis is for Congress to stop the political posturing and solve the problem – close the loopholes. So that children are not subject to exploitation as they are right now.
