Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott, who was recently forced out of his position by President Biden gave a grim look into the truth behind who is crossing the U.S. border. Scott warned in a letter to the Senate that Biden’s immigration policies are not only destroying the country but also leaving the United State vulnerable to terrorist attacks.
The Daily Wire reports:
Scott said that starting on January 20, 2021, he witnessed “the unprecedented seismic shift in border security and immigration policy” that he says “created the current border crisis,” noting that what is happening at the border is a serious national security threat.
“The Biden administration’s team at DHS is laser-focused on expediting the flow of migrants into the U.S. and downplaying the significant vulnerability this creates for terrorists, narcotics smugglers, human traffickers, and even hostile nations to gain access to our homeland,” Scott wrote. “In my professional assessment, the U.S. Border Patrol is rapidly losing the situational awareness required to know who and what is entering our Homeland.”
“Low level, unsophisticated and uneducated smugglers are illegally crossing the border and increasingly evading apprehension daily,” Scott warned. “To think that well-resourced terrorist networks, criminal organization, and hostile nations are not doing the same is naive.”
“The experienced civil service staff within CBP, ICE and DHS have provided multiple options to reduce the illegal entries and reestablish some semblance of border security through proven programs and consequences, yet every recommendation has been summarily rejected,” Scott wrote. “Secretary Mayorkas is choosing to ignore the sound recommendations of career government leadership despite his own admissions that he agrees with them.”
For months President Biden’s border crisis has continued to spiral out of control. Recently, the administration has faced calls to respond to the more than 12,000 migrants camped under an overpass in Texas. Republican governors across the nation have also demanded a meeting with Biden to address the migrant crisis impacting border states.
