Border Patrol Union Issues Scathing Message To Biden Prior To Texas Visit

Mocobizscene – Border Patrol union president Brandon Judd criticized President Joe Biden’s efforts as “too little, too late” ahead of his visit to Texas on Thursday.

On Thursday, President Biden will travel to Texas to meet with U.S. Border Patrol and local law enforcement in Brownsville. The purpose of the visit is to discuss the urgent need to pass the Senate’s bipartisan border security measures. A White House official confirmed Biden’s travel plans on Monday.

Tensions are still high between the federal and state units in Texas following a recent victory for the Biden administration over Governor Greg Abbott. In late January, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of temporarily removing razor wire along the southern border while the issue is being litigated. This decision has angered Republicans who stand by Abbott and his efforts to combat illegal immigration in the state. Furthermore, tensions have escalated as the federal government has expressed concerns over the environmental and humanitarian implications of these measures.

Texas Governor Abbott, who has been vocal in his criticism of President Biden’s handling of immigration, remains determined to continue the fight. He firmly asserts that this battle is far from over and emphasizes Texas’ right to self-defense. In light of the ongoing influx of individuals attempting to cross into the U.S. unlawfully from Mexico, Texas has taken measures to secure the area by utilizing razor wire as a barrier between the Rio Grande River and Shelby Park, a bustling 47-acre zone in Eagle Pass.

Fox News National Correspondent Bill Melugin recently shared Judd’s statement on X, formerly Twitter, where Judd criticized President Biden’s upcoming visit to the border. According to Judd, the visit comes “too little, too late” and is simply an attempt by Biden to “save his presidency.”

“In a disappointing turn of events, President Biden’s visit to the border comes three years into his term and after consistently denying the existence of a crisis. Whether it was his own statements or those made by WH Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre, Biden has repeatedly claimed that he has taken all necessary measures to secure the border. However, if this were indeed true, there would be no need for him to visit the border now. Even if he were to implement effective policies at this late stage, it would only be an attempt to salvage his Presidency,” Judd expressed in the statement.

In January 2023, President Biden made his first visit to the Texas border. During his trip, he traveled to the Bridge of Americas border crossing near El Paso, Texas, where he was accompanied by border patrol staff. This recent visit is not the president’s initial encounter with the border region.

Judd, on the other hand, criticizes Biden’s actions regarding the border, arguing that the purpose of the visit is purely political. He emphasizes the need to prioritize safety and security instead.

According to Judd, it is important for Americans to be cautious of self-serving actions when time is running out. He believes that if re-elected, Biden may return to his open border policies. Judd argues that Biden’s current visit to the border is solely a self-preservation move. He emphasizes that border security should never be a political issue, but rather a matter of ensuring the safety and security of the nation and its people.

Judd’s remarks follow President Biden’s indication that he is receptive to significant alterations. Biden has called on Congress to support a bipartisan agreement reached in the Senate, which combines border enforcement provisions with assistance to Ukraine in its ongoing conflict with Russia.

The bipartisan border security bill was struck down by the GOP-led House earlier this month. Conservative hardliners argued that the bill does not effectively address the issue of illegal immigration into the U.S. In order to advance the bill to the House, at least 60 “yes” votes were required. However, House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Louisiana Republican, had already declared the legislation as “dead on arrival.”

Immigration ranks as one of the key concerns leading up to the 2024 presidential election. Recent polls indicate skepticism towards President Biden’s approach to the issue, prompting Republican frontrunner Donald Trump to pledge more stringent measures.

Critics and skeptics are pointing out that President Biden’s upcoming visit to the border in Texas coincides with former President Trump’s visit, raising eyebrows and prompting claims that Biden is merely following in Trump’s footsteps. Trump’s campaign team asserts that this move by Biden underscores the magnitude of the border issue and its effect on his administration.

On Thursday, it is anticipated that Trump will be approximately 300 miles away in Eagle Pass.

In response to the request for comment, Steven Cheung, spokesperson for Trump’s campaign, directed Newsweek to a statement by Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s Campaign Press Secretary, via email.

“Crooked Joe Biden had ample opportunity to address and resolve the crisis he himself created at the border over the course of three years,” Leavitt emphasized. “Now, in a desperate move, Biden’s advisors are sending him to the border on the same day as President Trump’s widely publicized trip. But this isn’t a genuine attempt to solve the problem; it’s a political tactic because they are well aware of Biden’s significant decline in popularity. His last-minute and insincere effort to follow President Trump’s footsteps won’t be enough to deceive the American people. They know that Biden bears sole responsibility for the most severe immigration crisis in our history, as well as the subsequent Biden Migrant Crime Crisis that has affected communities throughout our nation.”
