Jen Psaki, White House press secretary, and Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of the Department Homeland Security, made outlandish and irrational claims about being horrified by images that show Border Patrol agents on horseback using authorized equipment and techniques to deter and prevent a large group of people from illegally entering the United States in Del Rio, Texas. The shameless hypocrisy demonstrated by Psaki and Mayorkas in criticizing the agents in the field who were left to deal with this unstable situation without any sensible strategic plan by the Administration is far more horrific.
It’s not surprising representatives of the Administration were quick to make ignorant and derogatory comments about the events considering the Administration’s disdain for law enforcement and underlying desire to defund the police. Nevertheless, instead of fake outrage, Psaki and Mayorkas should be horrified by the fact that agents have been forced to deal with the deplorable situation for days due to the Biden Administration prematurely dismantling effective measures that deterred people from illegally entering the country.
The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) will not sit by idly while members of the Administration attempt to shift the blame to agents for the indefensible conditions the Administration facilitated in Del Rio, Texas. The Administration is solely responsible for the mishandling of this issue since day one and should be the primary focus of any investigation into the events occurring there.
