I guess I should salute you with a worthy adversary and all that. But the truth is, I really did he score podcast. So the other side will always tell you when you’re on the right track, they will always tell you what actions you are taking or what what advocacy or positions you are taking that threaten their power that threaten them. And such as the case with Beijing, Biden and the Democrats old a set of crises. That is the crises they created down to the southern border. As you all know, there’s a national security crisis, which is obvious. There’s a humanitarian crisis, which is obvious. And because of the waning impact of the China virus, the health, the public health crisis isn’t as obvious as it once was. But it’s still there. Because not only the China virus flung across that border, a lot of other diseases that had been eliminated on our soil are being brought in by illegal aliens from all over the globe, into the United States. So it’s a problem. And it’s a set of crises. That is completely avoidable. And by the way, this is being done to us on purpose. Now, there are several people behind this. And partnership with Beijing, Biden, the Democrats, you have the narco terrorists, who are selling their poison Chinese made poison coming into the United States. They are selling children, they are selling women into slavery. Of course, Democrats have no problem with that are doing nothing to stop it. As a matter of fact, as whistleblower testimony shows, as whistleblower testimony proves Beijing Biden’s regime, the Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez showing up nowhere to cry. They are part and parcel of all of this, allow me to remind you my countrymen of exactly what Beijing Biden the Democrat Party has made you a party to my goal is to inspire action to safeguard the lives of migrant children, including the staggering 85,000 that are missing. Today, children will work overnight shifts such slaughterhouses factories, restaurants, to pay their debts to smugglers and traffickers. Today, children will be sold for sex. Today, children will call a hotline to report they’re being abused, neglected and trafficked. And we don’t know if they’re going to get the help they need. For nearly a decade, unaccompanied children have been suffering in the shadows. And I have to confess I knew nothing about their suffering until 2021 When I volunteered to help the Biden administration with the crisis at the southern border. As part of Operation Artemus, I was deployed to the Pomona Fairplex emergency intake site in California to help HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement reunite children with sponsors in the United States. I thought I was going to help place children in loving homes. Instead, I discovered that children are being trafficked through a sophisticated network that begins with recruiting in home country smuggling to the US border and ends when o r r delivers a child to a sponsor. Some sponsors are criminals and traffickers and members of transnational criminal organizations. Some sponsors view children as commodities, and assets to be used for earning income. Now, listen, however, whether you’re a Democrat or whether you’re Republican, I really don’t give a damn. How many of you how many of you think it’s permissible for your taxpayer dollars to be used to instruct your government to deliver illegal alien children into the hands of known criminals? How many of you believe that’s an effective use of your taxpayer money? Now? Most Democrats will say yep, yep, love delivering those kids into sex slavery, love delivering those women into sex slavery. The rest of humanity finds that abhorrent. This is why we are witnessing an explosion of labor trafficking. Now, whether it’s intentional or not, it could be argued that the United States government has become the middleman in a large scale, multibillion dollar child trafficking operation that is run by bad actors seeking to profit off of the lives of children. And as the movie sound of freedom told us that the reason why child trafficking sex trafficking and women’s sex trafficking is such a booming business, is because when you sell a narcotic, you get, you know, one score, and then maybe because it’s bad stuff, you kill your customer, and illegal alien child can be sold again, and again and again, over over a decade or more. And that’s why this is such a such a booming industry. And what’s even sick, it’ll probably make you even sicker folks, is that there’s a market here in the United States, in particular in the state of Texas. It’s our shame. It is it and it is because of Democrats and Republicans who have looked the other way, folks before you just put this all at the feet of the Democrat Socialist Party. Consider this, the laws that these Narco terrorists, and these human traffickers are exploiting, were authored signed off on and signed into law by Republicans and Democrats. Consider that. And for all of the the bitching and moaning of the Republican Party, not not one illegal alien child has been saved for all the caterwauling of the Republicans. So just I think it’s a fair examination, to look at each individual politician and say, well, just how committed are you to stopping this, regardless of their political party? Now, there’s another aspect of all of this getting in the way of the narco terrorists getting in the way of the Democrats, what I believe is the Democrats voter registration driver, what I believe is the Republicans exploiting foreign nationals for cheap labor. That is this effort by the regime to keep the good times going, keep those Narco terrorists making billions and billions of dollars keep the money flowing into Communist China for all of their drugs. As you know that the state of Texas has deployed these these buoys these floating orange buoys which can’t miss are sitting right there in the middle of water. And from what I’m told, they are incredibly good deterrence. Nobody wants to brave the water to try to get over these things, because it’ll slow you down and you’ll get caught. Now, in an effort to stop this, by the way, this has gotten the ire of the Biden regime. They’re suing Texas to get those out of the water. Mexico has decided oh, oh, we don’t like it because it’s causing a backlog and it’s keeping some of these some of these folks in Mexico we don’t want them here. My Narco terrorist friends as AMLO Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, my, my cartel friends don’t want him here. Well, it can’t make can’t make any money off of sex slavery for children, if they’re stuck on this side of the border. So what has the Biden regime done? Well, according to the Texan dot news, the Texan dot news, the US Fish and Wildlife Service is contemplating declaring two species of mussels found in the Rio Grande as endangered. They are rare species and they’re going to call them endangered, and the buoys must come out. The buoys must come out to protect the mussels. Question. What are the millions upon millions of illegal aliens defecating and urinating and trekking through the Rio Grande? What are they doing to the survivability of these rare muscles? And and can we use the environmental damage from millions of illegal aliens being caused to the Rio Grande into these muscles? Can we use that predicate to stop the illegal immigration crisis? No, no, no, no, no, we can’t we can’t do that. but we can use it as a as a pretext to stop enforcing law, which is what the US Fish and Wildlife Service is planning on doing. It’s disgusting. It’s sick, it’s lawless. Just like the industries that are growing up out of the Democrats, open border policies. We talk about all of this and so much more. With the Texas border czar Mike banks coming up on the Salcedo storm podcast. And now a word from our sponsor. Does the state of the economy have your head spinning? Let American medical plans relieve one burden health insurance, American medical plan specializes and under 65 health insurance plans that have zero co pays and no deductibles you choose your doctors you choose your hospitals.

We bring you real news for real Texas with no paywalls ever go to Texas today folks I want to welcome in Mike banks he’s the Texas border is our banks has over three decades of federal law enforcement leadership experience with 23 years and border security operations and administration along the United States Mexico border Mr. Banks Welcome back. Boy Chris, thanks for having me back. pleasures all mine sir up Mexico. Good old jelly. Oh, Miko says that they they have spotted a body floating near the Texas Water barrier. Now, I suspect I know what’s happening here. I don’t trust Mexico because it’s run by socialists. Why don’t you tell me what’s really going on here? Well, sir, you know, there was two reported bodies floating in the river near the buoy barriers and by near one of those was 3.1 miles away. The second one was in the proximity of the buoy barriers, however, that drowning had been reported two days prior, and they were unable to locate the draft of the drowning victim. Several days later, the drowning victim resurfaced near the buoy barriers. I think it’s a it’s just another attempt by you know, Mexico, as well as these open border Biden policies to try to attack anything the state of Texas is doing that is successful. And, and so just to try to sit there and place the blame of a drowning on a buoy barrier, when it had nothing to do with the drowning. It’s just absurd. And you know, if you take a look at the buoys, since we put them in Chris, talk about effectiveness, we have either a soldier or a DPS Trooper assigned to do nothing but maintain visual over those GUI barriers. And you know how many attempts we’ve had to cross over those blue berries since we replaced them 00 They are effective. And so this is an attack on the effectiveness that Texas is having on determining repelling illegal immigration and trying to pull at the heartstrings. The fact is, those bullies repel that traffic, we direct that traffic to a port of entry. There are 29 ports of entry along the southwest border of the United States. Do you know how many drownings they’ve had at a port of entry? Zero. And so if we’re sticking with the number of zero, the inhumane inhumanity in this open border policy is is encouraging and enticing these migrants to put their lives at risk to cross that river. And then and then when one of them drowns to try to somehow place that blame back on the state of Texas. Is this absurd? It is absurd. You know, I gotta say, Where was Mexico, when he illegal aliens were cooked alive in the back of a truck trying to sneak illegally into this country? Where was Mexico when we’ve seen a meteoric rise in deaths of illegal aliens, children, women men, I think the last estimate I saw was 1,000% increase in deaths on the border because of Joe Biden’s and the Democrats open border policies. Where was the socialist Narco terrorists controlled government of Mexico then, sir, I agree they were absent. And you’re absolutely correct. Last year, 853 known deaths of migrants crossing illegally to get them the border, that number was up from 546, the year before, which was a record then of the highest number of deaths ever recorded since in recorded history. And they’re currently on pace to exceed the last year’s record of at 53. We’ve had 535 deaths along the southwest border, that’s the entire Southwest border, just this year alone, with just five in the last 24 hours. And that’s of course, from from from you know, from coast to coast. But we’re on record to break that again. And the fact is, you know, if you don’t have to be a mathematician, right, and you’re in the military towards the reason the Border Patrol, now with the state, Math has never been my strong suit. But when you entice and encourage massive amounts of people to illegally enter the country, and put themselves at risk, you’re going to see an increase in deaths. And so if the Mexican government and the United States government really care about humane humanity, and care about protecting people, right, they would do exactly what the state of Texas is doing. And that is securing the border in the dangerous areas and between the ports of entry and directing that traffic to a lawful port of entry where they can crawl safely. Now, I want you to dress by the way, folks, we’re talking to Mike banks, he’s the Texas borders are, can you address the press because their conduct in this incident has been a disgrace. As you know, the press is largely made up of Democrats. And as you know, Democrats believe in and endorse breaking the law. So what what you’re seeing from the press is that the narco terrorist, socialist government of Mexico says that these bodies are as these bodies in the river are have drowned as a result of these barriers. And the press runs with it irresponsibly saying, Hey, we believe the socialist more than we would believe the governor of the state of Texas, what is what does that say about the the integrity and the conduct of the press in your mind? You know, the fact is, is I’ve been in law enforcement, even the military law enforcement officer, and the fact is, facts matter. And that’s what the press is supposed to do. They’re supposed to report the facts, and let the people decide, right, you know, everyone’s got opinions, and we’re entitled to our own opinions, but we’re not entitled to our own set of facts. And it’s disheartening, I’m out there day in and day out, I spend every day on the border. If I’m not on the border, it’s a rarity. And I see you speak to the soldiers and these troops and these troopers on a daily basis. And they know the good work they’re doing, they’re proud of the mission they’re doing, that they see the effect they’re having, and to have someone come out and and try to cast aspersions upon what the soldiers and these troopers are doing to protect Texas and the rest of United States, as well as you know, have these migrants go to somewhere that is safe, that and let them go to that federal process. You know, it’s disheartening. it’s disheartening when you see it, because, you know, again, we’re all entitled to our own opinion, the facts are what matter, report the facts, if you don’t want the facts, call me, I’ll be happy to give them to you and lay them out for you. And do so with with 100 degree certainty and, you know, make an effort, make an effort to tell both sides of the story and let the American public make their decision based on the facts. Don’t get one sided, you know, opinions. Well, Mr. Banks, as you know, the lion’s share of the press these days are just an ographers for the Democrat agenda. They’re just propagandists for the Democrat agenda, which leads me to my next My next area of concern. The city of Houston now is the sex slave hub of Texas. Now, I can imagine a lot of folks in the press, a lot of folks in the Democrat party look at that as an article of pride. I think it’s disgusting. That the city of Houston now is the number one destination where women and children are bought and sold for sex. What is the governor and operation Loan start doing to stop that because we’re all alone in this endeavor, because the Democrats don’t want to lift a finger to stop it. Well, Chris, thank you for that question. And I think it’s important to know that everything we’re doing on Operation Lonestar is designed to attack exactly that is the just the smuggling of smuggling and human trafficking. You know, smuggling and trafficking are two separate things. Of course, they’re both illegal but trafficking it is. It is The we’re going to do everything in our power to take it to the cartels to prevent them from being allowed. I can tell you it’s very difficult because we’re not just fighting the cartels, like we’re fighting the federal government, you know, not the federal government, but the Feiglin ministration on a daily basis, because every time we do something that is effective, the Biden administration tries to counter that. You know, for example, with the lawsuit over the GUI barriers, you know, as I said earlier, zero, illegal smuggling, illegal trafficking across the barrier since they’ve been in place. So we got to put something in place that works. And then we have a fight. But I can tell you what, we’re going to fight this, we’re going to fight everything we can, you know, as the governor said, Texas has a constitutional right to defend itself. And we’re going to continue to fight and do everything we can to stop human smuggling and human trafficking. And if we have to go with a Supreme Court in order to do so we’re going to do so we’re going to continue defending Texas until such time the federal government steps up and does its job. Amen. And the last question I have for you, sir, as as you know, it is an all hands on deck for law breaking inside the Democrat regime, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has said you know what we’re going to do, we’re going to designate two rare species of freshwater mussels endangered because we’re going to claim that these floating buoy barriers, which, as you’ve demonstrated are effective at stopping illegal immigration, we’re going to say that they are a threat to these to these muscles. However, you know, sir, what millions of illegal aliens coming across that southern border, do they they defecate and they urinate inside the Rio Grande, the human incursion, the trash, the pollution that is going inside the Rio Grande? What do you make of the Democrats contention that human human beings millions of them doing all that stuff to the Rio Grande is good for the muscles? However, your floating barriers? Are? What’s going to destroy the muscles? Can you respond to their idiotic claims? Well, one thing I think it does, Chris is it lets us know how effective we’re being. Because if the blueberries weren’t effective, I don’t think we would have ever heard about these muscles. And like you said, millions of people trekking through the habitat of the muscles isn’t bad for the muscles. But a barrier floating over the mobile habitat somehow is now all of a sudden a problem. So I think it tells us that we’re being effective. And you know, and we appreciate that. But the fact is, that we really believe that the administration cares more about muscles than they do protecting Americans from, from human sex trafficking from fentanyl being smuggled across the border. Right? This focus on protecting Americans is focused on preventing death of human lives, no matter where they’re coming from. And so I think it’s a clear sign to me that they see the effectiveness and how it’s countering these open border policies. And they’re willing to do anything they can in order to push a false narrative forward to protect their open border policies, which is just absurd. The Texas borders are Mike bank, sir. Appreciate your efforts. Thank you for trying to stand in the gap and trying to protect Americans where the regime and the press don’t really care. Thank you, sir. Thank you, Chris.
