Here are the main points:
GOP Senator’s report from the United States-Mexico border: what Biden does not want the US to know.
Biden plans to split the spending plan into two.
India on Thursday reported 59,074 new covid-19 infections, the highest single day since October 17 2020.

Senator James Lankford visited the United states-Mexico border including a processing area under a bridge in McAllen Texas where he says, documented immigrants are allowed and up and will be eventually released into the United States. Watch this compelling video.
“It’s about 11:40 and I am James Lankford want to be able to give you a quick update. I’m in McAllen, Texas. Literally write head to Texas Mexico border this is one of the underground processing areas that has been set up literally under the bridge. This is a bridge that moves from Mexico into the United States that far in down there the bright spot. That’s Mexico right down there. They’ll show up down that spot they’ll be able to walk through their picked up by border patrol here. They’re organized. They get their name their information. They’ll go through a very basic screening. We can have like 10 people together that all say their family and if they have one child, that’s five or six years old. All these folks will be released tonight into McAllen, Texas out with what’s called a notice to appear. It’s a piece of paperwork saying you’ve got to show up at a court hearing. Some of those Court hearings are three years later. So literally there into the country for the next three years and then there are buses here at the end and those buses will take them into the central part of McAllen, Texas and they’ll just be released at a bus station from there and they can go anywhere in the country. This is the problem. This is one of the areas that the media is not allowed to be able to come. This is the thing that Biden does not want you to see is that literally, people walk across the border, they check in here and they’re all released 100% of the people that are here tonight will be released. So this is absolutely an open border situation for anyone who wants to come in from any country in the world. No matter what your background is, no matter who you are, if you come through this spot right here, you’re going to be released. This is what open borders really looks like and this is why this is a problem”
