Democrats moved to Act, the blame for the border crisis in “unprecedented” fashion, according to ICE Director Mark Morgan.

The Congress was slow to respond to the situation, including the problems in prisons, said he said on Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson tonight.”

“This is simply outrageous,” he said in response to Carlson to call Democrats “woke up to the fact that it is a crisis, but now it’s the President’s fault.”

“The experts, the people asked to do this every day risking their lives-we have been outside the Congress, you need to step up.

“The only dysfunctional thing in the Congress.”

Morgan also claimed the Congress could process at the end of “catch and release”, if you fit such a policy.

“If you want to pass meaningful legislation … that would end the catch and release,” he said.

“I’m promising the American people, the numbers would explode and the Congress refuses to do their job.”
