Florida Gov. DeSantis blasts Biden's 'disastrous' border on Fox & Friends as pics show kids crossing Rio Grande

FLORIDA Governor Ron DeSantis has blasted Joe Biden's border policies as shocking pictures emerged showing traumatized migrant children trying to cross the Rio Grande.

The Sun exclusively obtained disturbing footage and video showing the tearful children wading through the river in a last-ditch effort to enter the United States in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

In the heartwrenching images, Texas Rangers could be seen helping asylum seekers ashore and leading them to safety a day after two Yemenis men on the FBI's Terror Watch List were booked for illegally entering the country.

Florida's Republican governor has now placed the blame firmly at Biden's feet as the overwhelming surge of people flood the US border, triggering a major crisis.

Speaking to Fox & Friends, DeSantis raged: "This is a Biden-caused disaster and because he rejected the policies that president Trump had put in that were working, you now have this serious situation at the border.

"Absolutely it makes our country more vulnerable to that type of infiltration [like the two terrorists arrested] but it's more than just that: they basically stopped enforcing immigration law.

"So in Florida, we had agreements with ICE that if someone was a convicted criminal here illegally, ICE would pick 'em up when they were done with their prison sentence and return them to their home country."

However, DeSantis claimed Biden will not deal with these "convicted criminal aliens," who are being released "in communities across the country."

Later on the show, Texas Governor Greg Abbott also voiced his concerns about Biden's policies and blasted his "open border policy," claiming it was "helping terrorists get across the border."

"What we do not know are the terrorists that were able to slip through," Abbott warned.

A series of incidents stemming from the suge includes Border Patrol agents taking six Mexican men into custody after four of them tried to swim to American while two others were picked up north of the border.

Additionally, US Customs and Border Patrol confirmed that five human smuggling events resulted in the arrest of 86 illegal aliens on Monday in a release.

Last Wednesday,  McAllen Border Patrol Station agents responded to a call for assistance from the Mission Police Department, who alerted them to a possible human smuggling stash house.

The statement read: "Agents and officers arrived on scene and discovered 13 illegal aliens being harbored in a trailer home.

"The subjects were identified as nationals of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Border Patrol took custody of all subjects."

As border crossings reach a 15-year high, Biden thanked the "courageous" newly naturalized citizens for coming to the USA on Monday.

"You all have one thing in common — courage. The courage it takes to sacrifice and make this journey," he gushed.

"The courage to leave your homes, your lives, your loved ones, and come to a nation that is more than just a place but rather an idea.

"You have earned a new title equal to that of an American president, the title I’m most proud of — citizen."

As the humanitarian crisis continues, a poll was released by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research that found 40 per cent of Americans disapprove of his handling of the surge at the southern border.
