Contrary to official figures, border agents informed him that the actual number of migrants entering the country far exceeds reported statistics.

He said “We hear this number, six million people have come across under the current administration. I talked to experts down there that say that number is a myth, that it’s closer to 13 to 14 million that have come across.”

He said that he felt it was “incredibly narcissistic” to think these people are coming across our southern border “just because they’re in the neighborhood,” he said.

“They’re coming in here with an agenda.”

Are They Spying?

He argued, “I’ll promise you, they are expected to do certain things. Are they spying? Are they sending seeds back from farming to China? Are they getting plans in the industries they’re working in? Who knows what they’re doing, and we need to know.”

A significant revelation from Dr. Phil’s trip was the contrasting treatment of migrants by state and federal law enforcement agencies.

He said, “If they run into a brown uniformed border guard with the Texas Department of Public Safety, they get arrested, they get put in jail and they get returned. But if they run into a green uniformed federal agent, they get money and a court date, seven to ten years down the road and they get released into the country.”

Impact of Treatment Disparities

The disparity in treatment has meant that if migrants “see a brown uniform they hide. If they see a green uniform, they run towards it.”
