Elected representatives in the Texas county of Val Verde intend to sue the Biden administration over the more than 30,000 mostly Haitian illegal immigrants the federal government has allowed to overrun their cities and towns. The forthcoming lawsuit will be a joint endeavor with other cities in the southern border regions of the state.
Officials in the county voted unanimously Tuesday in a bid to force the hand of lawmakers and spur them into action over the indefensible border influx.
The city of Del Rio, Texas operates under the auspices of the county of Val Verde and has seen thousands of Haitians effectively dispersed into the United States in an attempt to improve the optics of the squalor at the city’s port of entry.
The encampment of the more than 30,000 mostly Haitian migrants residing in teepees and lean-to’s under the concrete bridge in Del Rio was mysteriously cleared out last Friday under the cover of darkness. It was then swept with bulldozers in what can only be described as an effort to erase it from the memory of the American public.
Even mainstream media had to eat a little crow for dinner after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas unjustifiably slammed the Biden administration’s own border agents in their handling of the ordeal.
Val Verde County Commissioner Beau Nettleton, who is spearheading the lawsuit, wouldn’t abide the false narrative and slammed back on officials in Washington for “vilifying law enforcement” and “making heroes out of criminals” — adding that it was “inexcusable and a disgrace to our country.”
He said he was “sick and tired” of the ongoing immigration crisis.
“We’ve talked about immigration reform for as long as I can remember. Both parties have had control of Washington at one point or another over the last 20 years, and we have failed to do anything about it other than create the mess that we have today,” he said during a meeting where the lawsuit action was decided.
“It’s time that we get together with other counties and cities along the border and stand up and do something,” he said.
Nettleton expressed, for all, his frustration with the insurmountable odds the citizens of Val Verde and other counties have been forced to try and overcome; a hand dealt to them by a federal government that seemingly favors illegal immigrants over American citizens.
“Fifty percent of the population of this city was sitting underneath our International Bridge — how is a town of this size, with our tax base, supposed to deal with that problem,” he said of the Del Rio bridge encampment. “It is a complete failure of everything that is going on in Washington, for not just the last couple of years, but for many, many years.”
He added, “I am for people coming into this country legally. This is not a legal process. This is not the way to do it.”
The Val Verde commissioners agreed to unite with other counties along the border to file a joint lawsuit that challenges Biden’s immigration policies, or lack thereof.
At this time, it is not immediately clear when the county would be filing the lawsuit.
