Neuhaus gets firsthand look at southern border migrant issue

Texas’s El Paso Together with ten other county leaders from throughout the nation, Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus and Albany County Executive Dan McCoy spent Wednesday in the El Paso region touring the southern border with Mexico.

US border patrol agents informed them that 34,000 migrants had crossed the border at the site they were inspecting since late October.

The way Neuhaus described what he saw was quite unsettling.

He told Mid-Hudson News that while the vast majority of them are people seeking a better life, they have also apprehended a number of criminals with criminal records, including murder and rape, as well as foreign nationals, about whom the US is particularly concerned: China and Russia.

The team was scheduled to enter Mexico on Thursday in order to examine the migrant situation from that side of the border.

Neuhaus said that the fact-finding trip was paid for by campaign funds, therefore there was no cost to the taxpayer.
