George P. Bush to Newsmax: ‘Hypocrisy,’ ‘No Sense of Urgency’ on Border Crisis

As the number of illegal migrants streaming across the open southern border approaches 2 million, Texas attorney general candidate George P. Bush lamented the Biden administration’s “hypocrisy” in the time of COVID and the lack of “urgency.”

“This is the largest surge that we’ve seen,” Bush told Newsmax’s “American Agenda” on Monday. “With over 200,000 [monthly] apprehensions on average — and hundreds of thousands that have gotten away, this calendar year —  that number will approach 2 million illegals that enter our country, most of whom are transiting through the Texas-Mexican border.”

Bush, a Texas land commissioner, and grandson of the late President George H.W. Bush, and nephew to former President George W.
