There are so many people trying to cross the border in Texas that one town is being overwhelmed by the bodies of people who have drowned in the process.
This news comes as members of the Biden administration still try to insist that the border is secure.
It looks like the border is actually wide open.
The Blaze reports:
Mortuaries in small Texas border town ‘overwhelmed’ with migrant drownings
Mortuaries and funeral homes in the small Texas border town of Eagle Pass reported being “overwhelmed” by the spike in migrant drownings. As a result, the town’s fire department requested additional refrigerators to store the bodies temporarily.
Eagle Pass Fire Department Chief Manuel Mello III told Fox News, “There are so many bodies being recovered that the morticians are asking for assistance.” He stated that the town is experiencing more drownings than ever before.
Mello joined the fire department 25 years ago and noted an increase in drownings over the years. He said the department would recover approximately 12 bodies per year when he started.
According to Mello, Eagle Pass now recovers a body from the Rio Grande river daily. The Fire Department Chief stated, “It’s very traumatic for my personnel.” He told Fox News that the mental health of his workers is suffering.
Referring to his staff, Mello stated, “These are young gentlemen, young women that are seeing more than any normal person would see in a lifetime. I mean, if you think about it, it’s almost like a warzone.”
According to Customs and Border Protection, 13 migrants died attempting to cross the river two weeks ago.
This is not normal.
Where are all the Dems screaming & faux crying about "Concentration camps! Kids in cages! Babies ripped from parents!"? The political fakery was obvious then & more so now. Texas border town requests refrigerators to store migrant bodies after drowningshttps://t.co/jL5b5MBhFb

This is Biden’s fault and the media is ignoring it.
