He also criticized the Secretary of the Department of Home Security Alejandro Mayorkas' interview on Sunday, where he put the blame for the situation at the border on the former administration due to the partial abolition of the infrastructure for the temporary accommodation of illegal immigrants.
One of those measures would provide green cards and eventual citizenship to young undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S.as children, and legal status for migrant agricultural workers.
Sen. Chris Murphy on Friday said he "fought back tears" during a visit to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facility in Texas holding hundreds of migrant children from Mexico, Central America, and beyond.
Further, the Biden administration continues to rapidly send back most single adults and families whom federal agents stop at the border under a public health order issued by Trump at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday said he planned to visit the border with Mexico "at some point" and his administration was working to ensure that potential migrants applied for asylum in their home countries.
"The only way to end the Biden Border Crisis is for them to admit their total failure and adopt the profoundly effective, proven Trump policies", the statement read. "I haven't seen a plan".
The number of unaccompanied migrant children in United States custody surpassed 15,000 as of Saturday.

The senator said the children looked "exhausted" yet "hopeful". He said the US was working to address the issue with Mexico and Central American countries where the asylum seekers are coming from.
More than 500 of the roughly 4,500 unaccompanied children being held in sparse border patrol facilities as of Thursday have been there for more than 10 days, above the legal three-day limit, according to USA government data shared with Reuters. "There's no other way to claim it than a Biden border crisis". "They come every year around this time, when the weather pattern changes".

Avon and Somerset Police has said it will now be carrying out a "significant investigation to identify all those responsible". Bristol's mayor Marvin Rees said he had "major concerns" about the bill, but condemned the violence .
Trump's lax approach and lack of credibility also contributed to poor adherence to public safety rules among the American public. Biden has said that there will be enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May.
Matt Hancock urged the British public to take the vaccine even after countries including France , Spain and Germany suspended it. So far, the rate of blood clots among AstraZeneca vaccine recipients appears to be comparable to that of the general population.
