After the Texas governor asked President Biden for an emergency declaration over the migrant surge in the state, Texas Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick told “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday that the situation is a “total disaster” and the Biden administration is not telling the American people the truth.
MAYORKAS RUSHES TO TEXAS BORDER SECTOR OVERWHELMED BY MIGRANTS, ADMITTING ‘CHALLENGING SITUATION’
DAN PATRICK: They’re not telling anyone the truth.
