On Tuesday, President Biden promised to secure the southern border, but some Border Patrol agents who have actually worked at the border found his rhetoric ridiculous, with one saying bluntly to Fox News, “F***ing pandering 101, full of s***.”
Folks, if we are to advance liberty and justice, we need to secure our border and fix the immigration system. And as you might guess, I think we can do both. At our border, we’ve installed new technology like cutting-edge scanners to better detect drug smuggling.
We’ve set up joint patrols with Mexico and Guatemala to catch more human traffickers. We’re putting in place dedicated immigration judges in significant larger number so families fleeing persecution and violence can have their cases heard faster and those who don’t legitimately here can be sent back.
One Border Patrol agent reacted, “Immigration judges usually tend to follow the tendencies or intentions of their appointing administration, that means I and many other agents have little faith in them to actually follow immigration law. The vast majority of these illegal aliens have no legitimate claims to asylum but administration-picked and taxpayer-funded lawyers will argue otherwise. Unemployment, inability to buy groceries, domestic violence, bad schools and bad weather are not legitimate claims, period.”
Biden added, “We’re screening, we’re securing commitments and supporting partners in South and Central America to host more refugees and secure their own borders. We can do all this while keeping lit the torch of liberty that has led the generation of immigrants to this land — my forebears and many of yours.”
Former acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf tweeted, “That mention of border and immigration security was lip service. Nothing more. No vision, no strategy. Just a wish list and another hollow push for immigration reform legislation. I think the President may have forgotten he has authority to fix the crisis NOW.”

One Border Patrol agent told Fox News Digital, “Very few people within CBP believe this administration will actually secure the border, they just do not believe in it. All of their actions, comments and practices are solely about pushing in as many illegal aliens as possible, not just those from the Americas but from around the world.”
Another agent echoed, “I laughed.”
A third agent acknowledged refusing to even watch Biden’s speech: “Figured it would be all lies and smoke … We’re losing so many agents, they’re fed up.”
A fourth agent: “We all know he doesn’t care about secure borders.”
In a New York Post editorial titled, “Biden Sets Yet Another Record At The Southern Non-Border,” the Post’s editors noted:
A Customs and Border Protection reports 178,840 illegal migrants apprehended, beating the worst previous December by over 100,000.
Biden breaks records every month, with apprehensions on track to reach 2 million in his first full year. You can see why they keep coming: The Border Patrol estimates that hundreds of thousands more pass through without interception, while the administration releases most of those it does catch, even quietly resettling migrants all across the country.
