A Texas Republican predicted the surge of migrants at the southern border is going to get worse.

On Sunday, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said he believes 1 million migrants will try to enter the country by this summer. McCaul added the current administration is responsible for creating the surge at the border.

Many critics have reported poor conditions of migrant facilities being run by the Biden administration.

“It’s gonna get worse, it’s gonna get a lot worse. Springtime, summer, more and more come over. The messages coming back that ‘hey we got a new president, come on in. We’re open for business to the traffickers,’ and guess what, they’re right here,” McCaul stated. “I predict a million people trying to get into this country by the summertime.”

Despite the Biden administration advising migrants not to come to the U.S. right now, McCaul said their change in tune is coming too late.
