Border Patrol Chief: We Warned Biden Team to Not Remove Trump’s Policies.

Julio Rosas, Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott testified on Capitol Hill that not only is the U.S.-Mexico border not secure but it is not secure because of the policies the Biden administration removed once they took charge despite immigration officials’ warnings.

Scott, who served as chief of Border Patrol until he was forced to retire this year, said, “the border is clearly less secure today than it was in January of 2021.”

“The reason the border is less secure is directly related to policy decisions that are being made. Border security…it’s much broader and bigger than immigration. Immigration is a subcomponent. If we can’t control who and what is in our home, we have no security,” he said.

Scott noted by the time he left his position, Border Patrol agents had encountered over 150 different nationalities this fiscal year.

“Countless border security professionals briefed the transition team and briefed incoming administration personnel that if they rescinded the commonsense border initiatives that were put in place recently if they stopped building the border wall, we all predicted that there would be a mass migration. And again, the mass migration creates havoc on the border. The real issue at hand is that the border patrol agents are being distracted and being overwhelmed,” he continued.

Scott further warned due to Border Patrol agents being forced off the line in order to process large numbers of people who turn themselves in, it has resulted in many miles of the southern border being left unpatrolled. He said the worst example of that happening is when the influx of mostly Haitians crossed into Del Rio, Texas. More than two hundred miles of the Del Rio Sector did not have an agent dedicated to patrolling the area.

“So what that really meant was that the smugglers were transiting that border, all that open border, at will. And what were they bringing? They were bringing the fentanyl, the cocaine, and the heroin.”

Victory (Again) for GOP Against Dem Attempt at Federal Takeover of Elections

On Wednesday afternoon, Republican members of the United States Senate successfully filibustered the Democrats’ latest attempt to pass so-called “voting rights” legislation that would give the federal government control over America’s elections by reviving many portions of the also-defeated For the People Act.

The vote to move forward with the dubiously named Freedom to Vote Act fell short of the 60-vote threshold necessary to stop a filibuster with a final tally of 49-51 announced by Vice President Kamala Harris who presided over the Senate as the Biden legislative agenda took another loss, its second on election bills.

Back in June, Republican senators defeated Democrat attempts to pass the For the People Act — better known by conservatives as the Corrupt Politicians Act — when they prevented Schumer from getting the 60 votes necessary to move to debate on that iteration of Democrats’ attempted federal takeover of elections.

Senate Democrats and their leftist allies have exploited Republican opposition to their election bills as another alleged example of why the filibuster should be abolished, or at least gutted, a move that’s opposed by even President Biden, but one that continues to gain steam among Senate Democrats.

As the Senate voted on Wednesday, President Biden released a statement calling the Freedom to Vote Act an “urgent” matter because “Democracy — the very soul of America — is at stake.” He added that Republican opposition to the bill is “unconscionable,” a strange thing to say since Republicans had already blocked Democrat attempts to take control of elections away from states.
