Border Patrol union president: Harris isn’t going to border because ‘people will expect her to fix it’

Despite it being almost a month since President Joe Biden announced that Vice President Kamala Harris would be overseeing immigration issues on the southern border, Harris still hasn’t made the trip.

According to Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, Harris’ absence from the border is no accident.

“Putting politics ahead of the country”

Judd told Fox News Live on Sunday that if Harris travels to the southern border, “people are going to expect her to fix the problem, so she avoids it.”

“That’s disgusting,” Judd told Fox News host Griff Jenkins, adding that the vice president is “putting politics ahead of what’s best for this country.”

Judd went on to describe the challenges that Border Patrol agents are facing given the massive influx of illegal migrants who are coming across the border everyday.

According to Judd, the Biden administration is incentivizing more people to come by simply turning loose those who come across illegally, a policy known as “catch and release.”

“As long as we continue to release people into the United States after they violate our laws, with no consequences, people are going to continue to come. That’s the simple fact,” he said.

Judd: We want to welcome people legally

Jenkins agreed with Judd’s assessment, citing Border Patrol sources who have told him that it’s “at a point they haven’t even seen in their 20-year career.”

Judd made clear that he isn’t opposed to all immigration, but that the laws of the land must be followed. “We have the biggest open arms,” he said. “We want to accept people into this country but we want to do it legally, not illegally.”

He also condemned the people who he said are exploiting the crisis for political and financial gain.

“The left wants to excuse illegal immigration, they want to excuse the cartels abusing these children — taking these children and sexually abusing them, physically abusing them, mentally abusing them — they want to excuse this and they continue, by policy, they continue to perpetuate this situation and it’s gaining cartels ground and it’s making them billions of dollars every year off of human misery,” Judd said.

Judd is far from alone in his criticism of Harris, as her reluctance to visit the border has been a point of contention among many Republicans. Last month, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) slammed Harris after she laughed when asked by a reporter if she had any plans to visit the border. “It is no laughing matter, and I wish the vice president and president would come to the border,” he said.

  1. I don’t think VP Harris has the brain
    Power to fix the border crisis,
    She’s not capable of handling this or any other presidential responsibilities!
    For sure she’ll never become a respected President,not even in title!!

  2. This is precisely why no one should have voted for this administration! They not only don’t know what to do with our country as far as diplomacy goes, they aren’t even interested in learning! This bunch of lunatics needs to be indicted for malficense in office!
    What’s it going to take before these nuts give our country away?!? there seems t be no one at the wheel!

      1. It’s really bad when the elected pres. and the vp neither have any idea what to do. Whomever is screwing up our country needs to be gone. Biden is lost, not his fault, should never have run, dementia has robbed him mentally. I’m sure pelosi, schumer, Obama, no telling who have made a mess.

  5. My thoughts EXACTLY, Sandy! Problem is these jerks were not VOTED into their positions, they stole their postions! We have almost the full four years to hold out breath hoping China Joe doesn’t start a war with Iran, Russia or sell us to China! S-C-A-R-Y. . . at best!

  6. This whole issue looks like a smoke screen to cover up still the real agenda, what that is who knows!
    First it’s Trump out of office then it’s this admin. A real preup what’s coming !!

  7. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    Harris should have never been the V.P. of this country. She don’t know how to fix anything. She won’t go to the border because she is so scared that the people of this country will want her to fix the crisis at the border and she won’t know how to do anything to fix anything at the border. She should be fired or what is called impeached from the office she holds.

  8. They have people who tell her how to fix how to fix and she.tells us how they will.fix but that is beneath her status to help forget me not Joe out. No one tells Kamala.what to do as VP. She wants to be Prez.

  9. It would be nice if both President of the USA and his leaders were truthful and do the right thing. It isn’t going to happen since already we are in trouble with our leaders. It would be honorable and right thing to do is to be honest, thoughtful and smart to have leaders who truly want our country to be honest and think of all that we should be doing. We need to be more diligent in our economical duties so we don’t bankrupt our country which I see that is happening now. To be like the fanatics is ruining our leadership and I am scared that we are going down the drain so to speak with all that is happening due to poor thinking..

  10. MANY POSITIONS IN POWER TODAY ARE BECAUSE SOROS SPONSORED THEM. NOT QUALIFIED AT ALL

Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

  13. Since there is not one person making the mess at the Border the Ho has not a clue how to handle the problem. Her tried and true method of sleeping with a man to get what she wants won’t work in this case so she is totally helpless and immensely clueless on what will fix the Border problem. As for her career going up in flames that will only happen if she gets An STD that won’t go away or AIDS. That is the only things that end a Ho’s career that I know of.

  14. KAMALA HARRIS CAN’T FIX A BROKEN FINGERNAIL…AND YOU EXPECT HER TO FIX THE ILLEGAL ALIEN BORDER SITUATION???

    YOU JUST DON’T GET IT…. THE DEM PLAN IS TO KEEP IT BROKEN….

  15. Kamala is a filthy joke on America! She is a smart mouth and a phoney and has always been represent what no woman want to be like!!

  16. She doesn’t have the qualifications to be VP. Let’s face it. She’s a do-nothing person! Can you imagine what it will be like if she replaces Biden? God help this nation when it happens.
