Border Patrol Chief Says Border Crisis a Result of Biden’s ‘No Consequences’ Policy For Illegal Migrants
In sworn testimony, the Border Patrol leader blamed President Joe Biden for record surges in illegals crossing the southern border. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz claimed the president’s immigration policies have no consequences for people illegally entering the U.S.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody sued the Department of Homeland Security and other border agencies, claiming the Biden administration is ignoring federal immigration law. Ortiz’s testimony was given during July depositions for the discovery portion of Florida’s lawsuit.
Fox News further reported:
Ortiz, who has more than 31 years of experience in law enforcement, told attorneys representing Florida that he believes migration will increase at an exponential rate at the southern border because there are no “consequences” in place to curb the tide of migrants flooding into the U.S.
“In my experience, we have seen increases when there are no consequences,” said Ortiz during deposition.
