Top news right now: The Border Patrol’s union has condemned the Biden administration’s announcement of a “targeted enforcement operation” in El Paso, Texas as a “sad joke” and a “pandering PR stunt” that will aid dangerous illegal immigrants. The DHS press release specified that immigration agents will “process individuals for vetting and placement into Title 42 expulsion or Title 8 removal proceedings,” during a severe migrant surge on the El Paso and Juárez border. The Border Patrol union and Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin also argues that this essentially gives “evaders/gotaways a heads-up that [DHS agents] are coming,” endangering law enforcement and rendering the operation useless. The crisis has only worsened since Biden announced the end of Title 42, with overwhelming migrant encounters and long lines at the border city of Tijuana.
“The only thing Biden handles is an ice cream cone.”
