Biden reportedly angry, ‘dropping f-bombs’ over migrant crisis but fmr border patrol head doesn’t buy it

A new book on the Biden administration paints a picture of a president so frustrated by the crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico that he’s stomping around the West Wing “dropping F-bombs,” but a former head of the U.S. Border Patrol isn’t buying it.

Rodney Scott joined Fox News’s John Roberts on Friday, and he painted a very different picture of Joe Biden and his administration, one in which “optics” are more important than “the real problem.”

“This administration talks about wanting a more humane border, they have done the absolute opposite,” Scott said.

“This endless flow of humans handed to the cartels allows them to shape the border, to bring in fentanyl, heroin, cocaine every day, and it’s at the expense of the lives of these migrants, not to talk about the sexual abuse and everything else that takes place,” he continued. “Most of the morgues along the southwest border were overflowing and no one wants to talk about that. It’s a humanitarian crisis, a national security crisis, and the administration might be frustrated, but refused to do anything about it. It appears they are frustrated with the optics and not the real problem.”

Roberts cited a new book by documentary filmmaker Chris Whipple titled “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” in which the author claims, “President Biden has lost it over the border crisis.”

“He writes… ‘Meanwhile, illegal immigrants kept arriving and Biden was furious. Aides had rarely seen him so angry. From all over the West Wing, you could hear the president cursing, dropping F-bombs. He’d always apologize when women were present,'” Roberts said.

“The president apparently is upset at the lack of solutions,” Roberts continued. “But if memory serves me correctly, Rodney, he’s the one who took off all the protections that were in place that were keeping people from crossing the border.”

“Yeah. That frustration sure doesn’t play out into action,” Scott replied. “The reason we’re talking so much about Title 42 today is because this administration took the playbook that career government employees with years of experience put together to help secure the border, and then he threw that out.”

Title 42, a Trump-era policy that restricted the number of migrants who could seek asylum during the pandemic, is set to expire, and experts say the border crisis will certainly worsen when it does, crashing systems that are already overwhelmed.

“Every single initiative that we had in place to secure the border, to slow down the flow of illegal immigration, because that is what the cartels use to mask their other criminal activity, this administration threw it out,” he said.

“Just pull that playbook back out,” he continued. “Re-reinvest in the remain in Mexico program. Reinvest in building some barriers that make every single Border Patrol agent more effective, and probably just as importantly, reinvest some pressure on Mexico to enforce their own laws and to bring some transparency to some of the challenges we have down there. And all of a sudden, this crisis starts slowing down.”

“But they won’t do any of that,” he predicted.
