Army vet highly disturbed by scene in Del Rio after going to help: Was like ‘Naked and Afraid’ border edition

A U.S. Army veteran and business owner has pooled his resources to remedy some of the squalid conditions at the southern border and render aid to the city of Del Rio, Texas. John Rourke, who owns Blue Line Moving in Jupiter, Florida, organizes his moving and storage company each year to clean up one American city, a program called the Great American Cleanup.

Most recently, they did their work at the southern border and in Del Rio, witnessing first-hand the crisis that the Biden administration seemingly continues to ignore. On Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday, the host asked Rourke to describe what he and his team saw.

Rourke said he and his crew, including veterans and active-duty soldiers, traveled there in remembrance of 9/11. On their first day and within minutes of starting their work, they had gone from picking up trash to pulling three people out of the Rio Grande River.

“The next day on 9/11, I was underneath that bridge and I see Maxine Waters and Kamala Harris talking about what they’ve seen. Well, let me tell you what I saw. I saw people washing babies in the Rio Grande. I saw breastfeeding babies, sleeping in dirt, 107 degrees outside, red ants everywhere, real coyotes – the ones that have four legs – walking around.”

“It was like ‘Naked and Afraid’: Southern Border Edition.”

Rourke continued, “People are literally knocking down trees and setting up lean-to’s and teepees and sleeping under those. They come and go back and forth from Mexico just as me or you walk across the street. There’s nobody there to stop them.”

“We spoke to a ton of them. About 85 percent of the people underneath that bridge were Haitian”

That fact is disquieting as the Haitian contingent at the southern border continues to surface in conversation and news reports. But Democrats and their voice-boxes in the mainstream media focus on the non-story, fake news accounts of agents whipping the backs of Haitians, while they refuse to ask why there are so many, when it is known that most of them come up from Central American countries where they have already been living and working.

Rourke went on. “I asked them about Covid-19. I was there. I was asking them about whether or not they had been vaccinated. If there was a vaccine available, would they take it? [They] emphatically said no, they would not take it.”

“They feel like this is the opportunity now [with] the Biden administration to leave the country they’ve been living in, Central America, places like Chile, and come here now, and they told me to my face the reason why we’re here is because ‘Joe Biden is allowing us to come here.'”

Rourke said they told him, “‘He’s a very humble man, he has a big heart, he loves the Haitian people, and we love him.'”

“It was almost like I was at the biggest Biden rally I’ve ever been to,” he said.

It’s too bad they don’t know Joe like we know Joe. They might think differently had they read these remarks Biden made in 1994 concerning their homeland:

“If Haiti, a God awful thing to say, if Haiti just quietly sunk into the Caribbean or rose up 300 feet, it wouldn’t matter a whole lot in terms of our interest.”

Watch and listen here.

Commending Rourke on the good work he’s doing with his Great American Cleanup program, Tucker concluded, “And it’s up to you who lives in Jupiter, Florida which is nowhere near Del Rio, Texas, to clean up the mess the administration made – people who claim to care about the environment.”
