During today's trip, Secretary Johnson made this statement: "This is my fourth visit to South Texas since I took office six months ago, and my second dedicated to addressing the recent surge in illegal border crossings here. I met with our personnel and also spoke again with many children who took the long journey from Central America to find a parent or a better life in the United States. Their stories are a vivid reminder that the issue we face is as much a humanitarian one as it is a matter of border security. With the recent surge in interagency resources to deal with the situation, our people are moving the increased numbers of children, families and adults through the process in a safe and humane manner. Our personnel are doing a professional and heroic job. We are adding even more resources to handle the increased numbers. Still, we must stem this new tide of illegal migration. We are building additional detention capacity for adults who are apprehended crossing our border illegally with their children, and will increase the number of expedited removals from among this population, consistent with our laws. Additionally, the Vice President had very productive meetings today with officials from the governments of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador on this issue. We are sending the message, in Spanish and English, to parents about the dangers of entrusting your child to a criminal smuggling organization to bring them on the long journey to the U S We are doing a number of things to address this situation. We are exploring every lawful option to stem the tide and, with the combined efforts of multiple components of our government, the support of Congress, and our partnerships with our allies in Mexico and Central America. I believe we will."
