"Any good leader that was facing this kind of situation would have stood up Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), got emergency funding for ICE, put up shelters in their temporary buildings to accommodate all this, so proper processing could be done," he said.
"He did none of this. So he doesn't have a plan. His plan is obviously intentionally to just allow everybody into this country and try to track down that many millions of people years down the road," Wilmot continued.
"It's a false narrative that this administration is pushing to the American people," he added.
The words came as a video has gone viral of authorities releasing hundreds of migrants into Brownsville, Texas, ias Title 42 expires.
The footage captured by Breitbart Texas noted that buses arrived approximately every 30 minutes to drop off migrants at a station on the way to their final destination.

"The release of the migrants comes just hours before the Biden administration will end Title 42 removals — a move that is expected to cause a spike in irregular migration as thousands of migrants continue to make their way north through Mexico," Breitbart reported.
"In just the past three days, Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector apprehended more than 9,000 migrants in the past three days, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday. Nearly 3,000 were apprehended on Wednesday alone. These contributed to the nearly 31,000 migrants apprehended along the entire southwest border during the three-day period ending Wednesday," it added.
