Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-Texas) criticized the Biden administration over the influx of illegal immigrants at the southern border during a press briefing in McAllen, Texas on Tuesday.

"This refusal to accept responsibility is startling in light of a news report that suggests the Biden Administration was warned that reversing President Trump's successful immigration policies would lead to a surge at the border", they wrote. Facilities near the border are still overcrowded.

Data reviewed by CNN shows that up to 1.1 million single adults are expected through September, along with up to around 828,000 families and more than 200,000 unaccompanied children. There are more than 4,100 migrants there.

"So I fully expect our border patrol agents to encounter over a million people this year".

The Donna facility is only supposed to have 250 people because of COVID.

"Donna is a huge tent city that they built to handle this massive crisis, this massive surge of illegal immigration", Cruz stated.

In his turn, former President Trump said on Saturday that he will most likely visit the border in the coming weeks.

Despite a significant influx of illegal migrants crossing the United States border over the past two months, the Biden administration refuses to call the situation a "crisis", however, it has noted the increased workload on border services and the "overwhelming" number of arriving migrants, including unaccompanied children.

The March total edges out the highest month in 2019, during the most recent border crisis. But Trump went on a rant, talking about Iran, China, the border migrant crisis and Joe Biden.

Trump had strived hard to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, one of his key campaign promises in 2016.

Border Patrol has apprehended more than 150,000 illegal border crossers during the month of March-50,000 more than February-according to former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan.

According to the Associated Press, more than 17,000 migrant children were in USA custody as of Monday.
