Note: This “Moore to the Point” commentary aired on NewsTalkSTL on Wednesday, June 29th. Below is audio.
Monday night we were horrified to hear that many migrants had been killed in an accident involving a tractor-trailer. It happened near San Antonio Texas. As of Tuesday afternoon, the death toll stood at 50, and over a dozen other people had been transported to the hospital for treatment of heat stroke, exhaustion, and dehydration.
This is the result of an out-of control border situation that was sparked by the reckless policies of the Biden Administration. Texas Governor Greg Abbott correctly pointed out this fact, noting that the deaths are “the fatal consequences of (Biden’s) failure to enforce the law .”
At Least 42 People Found Dead Inside Truck Carrying Migrants In Texas.
These deaths are at Biden.
They are the result of his dangerous open border policies.
They show the fatal consequences of his failure to enforce the law. https://t.co/8KG3iAwlEk

In response to Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre stated that the “fact of the matter” is that the border was closed .”
No matter what you do, it’s simply wrong. The border between the United States and Mexico has never been closed by any reasonable definition – however, it is much more open than it was two years ago.
Leaving aside their inability to tell the truth, the fact is The Biden Administration cannot seem to get out of its paper bag. It is unclear if this is a result of incompetence on the part of institutions or if it was intentional.
