Rancher Tim Ward is a long-time Texan whose life has drastically changed since Trump-era border policies were stripped by the current administration.
In the "last eight to nine months it’s just been an invasion of our area," Ward said.
The fourth-generation Kinney County resident described his experience with illegal immigration over the years. In the past "a light amount" of migrants moved across the border town. However, the quantity has skyrocketed since Biden took office.
"They [illegal immigrants] come well-equipped, they come with new clothing and they come with a desire to get what they can get from us," Ward told the "Mornings with Maria" host.
After pointing them in the direction of the San Antonio town, the migrants demanded a ride from Ward. He declined, but the migrants proceeded to approach Ward’s vehicle. After Ward lightly put his hand on the pistol located on the dashboard of his car, the migrants backed down and left his property.
Although the rancher is not afraid for his life, he carries his pistol everywhere he goes.
Running into migrants crossing the U.S. border is an everyday occurrence for Ward.
"They ‘re here on a daily basis," he said. "We see the debris, they leave the footprints, we see the fences cut and so we know they’re here," he further explained.
Illegal border crossings spiked significantly this year. Recently, the Fox Flight Team captured more than $100 million worth of unused border materials going to waste after the admin terminated border wall contracts amid record-breaking border crossings.
"I know he [Biden] would be doing something if this was happening in Delaware," Ward said. "I feel like he has abandoned us. He has no care for the people of this state, of this area, and we’re extremely disappointed in him," he said.
Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have not yet traveled to the U.S. southern border to observe the migrant crisis, known to some as a "humanitarian crisis."
Ward told FOX Business’ Baritromo that Biden should be "ashamed" of himself for his lack of guidance on the matter.
"To think that he has been trusted with the highest office of this land and a state, that he would abandon his citizens for just political favoritism is a very serious, critical error his part," Ward said.
