This Thursday a group of nearly 20 protesters gathered outside the Brownsville federal courthouse to express opposition against the current situation on the southern border.
Some of the protesters are even migrants themselves.
“My message to the Biden administration is to put back in place the policies that were working,” protester Mayra Flores said. “The remain in Mexico Policy— hire more immigration judges, more asylum officers to process these asylum seekers faster.”
Flores, a Republican candidate for Congress says she came to the U.S. legally, she fears for the children facing dangers while making their journey to the county.
“I am an immigrant myself,” she said. “I, actually, was born in Burgos, Tamaulipas. I was blessed to come to the United States at six years old and I know that not everyone has that blessing.I want every child to come to this country the way I did and have that experience, not be abused and raped.”
