[Democratic U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar] has called on President Joe Biden to halt his administration’s open border policies, which Cuellar argues has burdened local law enforcement, endangered local communities, led to increased crime, drug and human trafficking, cartel and gang violence, and the spread of the coronavirus.
Last year, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol reported the greatest number of encounters of illegal immigrants in the agency’s recorded history after the Biden administration reversed a range of immigration policies. In addition to no longer enforcing immigration laws passed by Congress, the administration halted construction of the border wall, halted the Remain in Mexico program, reduced Title-42 expulsions, and introduced sweeping changes to arresting, detaining and deporting illegal immigrants.

(The Center Square) – The Laredo, Texas, home and campaign office of Democratic U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, a vocal critic of the president, was raided by the FBI on Wednesday.
More than a dozen federal agents were seen entering and leaving Cuellar’s Laredo residence removing bags, bins and at least one computer, The Monitor of McAllen first reported. Local news reports also show agents at his campaign office.
“The FBI was present in the vicinity of Windridge Drive and Estate Drive in Laredo conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity,” FBI spokesperson Rosanne Hughes said in a statement. “The FBI cannot provide further comment on an ongoing investigation.”
The congressman is fully cooperating, his office said.
“Congressman Cuellar will fully cooperate in any investigation. He is committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld,” his spokesperson said.
Cuellar has represented Texas’s 28th Congressional District since 2005. His district includes communities located along the border with Mexico, spanning as far south as Reynosa along the Rio Grande River, stretching northwest to Laredo and northeast to San Antonio.
Cuellar hasn’t been shy about criticizing the Biden administration or asking it for help. He’s called on President Joe Biden to halt his administration’s open border policies, which Cuellar argues has burdened local law enforcement, endangered local communities, led to increased crime, drug and human trafficking, cartel and gang violence, and the spread of the coronavirus.
