Some border patrol officials questioned President Joe Biden’s Tuesday promise to secure the southern border with Mexico, saying he was “full of crap.”
“Guys, if we want to promote freedom and justice, we need to secure our borders and fix the immigration system. And as you can imagine, I think we can do both,” Biden said during his State of the Union address.
“We have installed new technologies at our border, such as state-of-the-art scanners, to better detect drug smuggling. We have set up joint patrols with Mexico and Guatemala to catch more traffickers. We are deploying dedicated immigration judges in significantly larger numbers so families fleeing persecution and violence can have their cases heard more quickly and those who are not here legally can be turned back,” he claimed.
Some Border Patrol agents responded to Biden’s comments in an interview FoxNews.
“Immigration judges usually tend to follow the tendencies or intentions of their appointing authority, which means that I and many other officials have little confidence in them actually following immigration law,” one official said.
“The vast majority of these illegal aliens have no legitimate right to asylum, but government-selected and taxpayer-funded lawyers will argue otherwise. Unemployment, inability to buy groceries, domestic violence, bad schools and bad weather are not legitimate demands, period,” he continued.
Chad Wolf, former Secretary of Homeland Security, 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 an immigration reform law. I think the President may have forgotten that he has the authority to resolve the crisis NOW.”

Another agent said: “Very few people inside [Customs and Border Protection] believe that this government will actually secure the border, they just don’t believe in it.
“All of their actions, comments and practices are all about pushing in as many illegal immigrants as possible, not just from America but from around the world,” the agent continued.
“I laughed,” another agent said in response to Biden’s remarks.
“We all know he doesn’t care about safe borders,” added a fourth agent.
A Harvard/Harris poll last June found that a large majority of respondents – 80% – believe that illegal immigration has become a serious problem.
Respondents also believe the issue is important enough that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris need to pay more attention to it.
In addition, 68% said the government is sending out signals encouraging more illegal immigration.
Meanwhile, 55% of respondents said they believe former President Donald Trump’s border measures should have been reinstated or never changed.
