Unaccompanied children, human trafficking, and drugs, are issues at the crux of the border crisis, and the Biden administration is doing little to address them.
Recently ousted U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott recently spoke out on the Biden administration’s unsustainable border policies. Having joined Border Patrol in 1992, Scott has seen a range of polices in action. In February 2020, Scott became chief under the Trump administration. While working in his role, Scott encountered the harsh realities the Biden administration does not seem to understand. Unaccompanied children, human trafficking, and drugs, are issues at the crux of the border crisis, and the Biden administration is doing little to address them.
Scott complimented the Trump administration’s efforts, finding that many issues previously resolved were made challenges again by the Biden administration. “We had an increase in adult males because the administration and the Democrat presidential candidates were signaling throughout the presidential campaign they weren’t going to deport anybody. They were going to offer free health care.” He said, “as soon as Biden blew up the agreements with Central America, the [Remain in Mexico] policy, that’s what sparked this. That’s the root cause.”
Scott added, “There has to be a consequence. If there is no consequence to illegal entry, then it’s never going to stop.”
