Democratic Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano called out his party’s top two politicians on Saturday as his town continued to experience the devastating effects of being overrun by illegal aliens on the border.
The town of about 35,000 people has seen an explosion of migrants who have illegally entered the U.S., most of whom are from Haiti, by walking across the Rio Grande River. The numbers surged from several hundred a week ago to approximately 15,000 by Saturday.
Lozano called out Vice President Kamala Harris, who attended a college football game on Saturday where she conducted the opening coin toss, writing: “The VP is able to visit the fun events across the country, while American communities continue to grapple with failed immigration reform.”
“Where is the visit to Del Rio, TX?” Lozano asked, he later added: “We need you to visit Del Rio, Texas.”
Lozano also responded to an unrelated tweet from Harris, where Harris wrote: “The U.S. is falling behind, on a global scale, on investing in childcare. We invest fewer public dollars in early childhood education and care relative to GDP than almost all other developed countries. With our Build Back Better Agenda, @POTUS and I are determined to change that.”
