A border state sheriff is slamming the Biden administration over its immigration policies, accusing the government of being complicit in the human trafficking and sexual abuse of migrants as the crisis at the Mexico-U.S. border intensifies.
Former Jackson County, Texas, Sheriff A.J. Louderback told Fox News Digital in an interview that Biden has caused “chaos” at the border due to the administration’s “zero enforcement policy” and expected rollback of Title 42.
The Biden administration has announced its plan to terminate Title 42 on May 23, a public health order that has been used since March 2020 to quickly expel a majority of migrants at the border due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Law enforcement in all the border states have been very concerned over the loss of Title 42 and what that actually means on top of the chaos that the Biden administration has caused since January 2021. When you take away Title 42, then you’ve multiplied every problem that you created in the first place. And so law enforcement is very concerned about the Title 42 issue,” Louderback told Fox News Digital.
The Texas sheriff, who serves as the current president of the Texas Sheriff’s Regional Alliance and on the National Sheriffs’ Association border security committee, said it’s “horrific” that the Biden administration is a “party to” abuse and human smuggling of migrants at the border, noting that Mexican cartels are being empowered and profiting off the trafficking of increased numbers of migrants.
