Joe Biden has created a disaster on the southern border.
And the results of Biden’s policies are now starting to come to light at last.
Now, this top border chief made one shocking revelation under oath that left Biden fuming.
Joe Biden has created one of the biggest man-made disasters in American history on the country’s southern border with Mexico.
After spending the better part of 2020 promising amnesty and an open border to anyone who could reach it, Biden then spent 2021 stunned that his own policies and rhetoric created one of the largest migratory crises in American history.
But rather than do anything about it, he tried to delegate responsibility to the crisis to Kamala Harris, who then proceeded to use her newly-appointed authority to do exactly nothing to resolve the issue.
Instead of trying to solve the border crisis by enforcing American immigration law or setting up border defenses to prevent the flood of illegal immigrants from crossing the border with impunity, Biden and Harris instead condemned border agents for doing their job, suggested anyone who supported border security was racist, and continued to encourage migrants to cross the border illegally despite there being no accommodations to accept or process them.
And now, roughly two years after Biden’s comments sparked a firestorm on the southern border, a top Border Patrol agent made one shocking admission under oath as to the true scale of Biden’s disaster.
And the results left Biden fuming.
The Washington Examiner reports, “The nation’s top Border Patrol agent testified in a private legal deposition that the Biden administration’s decision to walk back Trump-era enforcement measures has caused the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border.”
“In my experience, we have seen increases when there are no consequences,” said Raul Ortiz in a July 29 deposition video published by Fox News.
The comments came at a time when Ortiz was chosen by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to head the U.S. Border Patrol at the onset of the Biden administration.
At the time, Ortiz flew under the radar and avoided media attention, despite the growing crisis at the border.
But now, he is finally speaking out as to the true scale of the disaster on the southern border, and Ortiz’s comments squarely pin the blame on Biden and his policies.
“Ortiz was called to speak to the cause of the border crisis as part of the discovery process in Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody’s lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security. Florida sued the Biden administration on the basis that its ending Trump administration policies triggered a mass migration event over the past 18 months,” adds the Washington Examiner.
“More than 3 million people have been encountered attempting to enter the United States from Mexico illegally since President Joe Biden took office. Ortiz said under oath that the present situation constituted a crisis and agreed with the attorney general’s statement that ‘unprecedented numbers’ of migrants have been encountered at the border this year.”
Ortiz’s comments come at a time when Biden himself is planning on visiting the southern border, a move that finally marks his admission of responsibility for the crisis he helped to create.
But there are so far little signs that Biden plans to use the visit to reverse course, with all indicators suggesting Biden plans on spinning the crisis into being a problem for Republicans, despite the fact that the party currently has no power in Washington, D.C. to do anything about the crisis.
