Under the Biden administration the scene at the southern border is growing more desperate for both agents, and the states who share a border with Mexico. Recent months have shown massive amounts of drugs being seized, and governors desperately trying to protect their citizens.
Washington Examiner reports. Reports indicate that Border Patrol agents in El Paso used force to evict Venezuelans from the United States and return them to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
The El Paso Times captured video on Monday afternoon of federal law enforcement officials walking back a large group of noncitizens who had illegally crossed the border and approached agents outside a station under the international bridge. A photojournalist for the El Paso Times, Omar Ornelas claimed on Twitter that he had witnessed agents fire “rubber bullets” at one person in an effort to push the group back across the canal and into Mexico. Video shared by Ornelas did not show the events that precipitated the incident, which federal authorities told the Washington Examiner came after an assault on an agent.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman said an illegal immigrant struck an agent with a flagpole, prompting agents to take action. Agents responded with pepper balls – not rubber bullets, according to the spokesman.
Videos like that just go to show how important border security is for America.
Western Journal reports. Arizona GOP Gov. Doug Ducey did not heed the Biden administration’s demand to remove the shipping containers the state is using to fill in U.S.-Mexico border wall gaps. In fact, the state began filling in more gaps this week.
On his first day in office, President Joe Biden issued an executive order ending construction on the wall the Trump administration was building on the nation’s southern border, leaving many gaps.
Last week, Ducey’s office said the governor did not plan to immediately comply with the Biden administration’s demand to remove shipping containers the state placed on federal and tribal lands to fill some of those gaps in the Yuma Sector, near the Arizona-California state line.
Rather than comply, Ducey filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and other federal officials last Friday
In a press release Governor Ducey stated “Our border communities are overwhelmed by illegal activity as a result of the Biden administration’s failure to secure the southern border. Arizona is taking action to protest on behalf of our citizens. With this lawsuit, we’re pushing back against efforts by federal bureaucrats to reverse the progress we’ve made,” he continued. “Arizona is taking action to protest on behalf of our citizens.

It’s a shame what our country has come to. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have failed us. They promised to fix the border crisis, but all they’ve done is make it worse.
Illegal immigrants are flooding across the border, and our Border Patrol agents are under attack. In El Paso, a group of Venezuelans was caught on video attacking agents with flagpoles. This is just one example of the type of violence our agents are facing on a daily basis. Yet the Biden/Harris administration remains silent, instead they choose to attack governors who are attempting to do their jobs of securing the border.
It’s time for Biden and Harris to finally do something about this crisis. We need to secure our borders and protect our citizens. That means building a wall and enforcing our immigration laws. Anything less is simply unacceptable.
