Border Patrol agents slammed President Joe Biden for saying “there are more important things going on” than visiting the border, three agents and the Border Patrol union president, Brandon Judd, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Biden’s time in office has been marked by record illegal immigration, with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountering more than 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022 and another more than 230,000 in October at the southern border, which the president has yet to visit. Biden defended not visiting the border Tuesday, arguing “there are more important things going on. They’re going to invest billions of dollars in the new enterprise in the state,” in reference to a Taiwanese investment in the manufacturing of chips in Arizona.

Border Patrol agents dealing with the surge everyday told the DCNF that they aren’t pleased with Biden’s remarks and actions. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: ICE Is Massively Misreporting How Many Illegal Immigrants Are Being Released With GPS Trackers)

“MORE IMPORTANT THINGS? This is HIS disaster, he created this catastrophe. The border crisis is a total breach of National Security. Give me a fucking break…I can’t wait for this clown to be out of office,” one Border Patrol agent told the DCNF in a text message, adding “He’s straight up in denial.”

President Joe Biden reversed and stripped a number of border policies put in place by the Trump administration upon entering office that included ending the Migrant Protection Protocols, which forced certain illegal migrants to await court proceedings in Mexico.

Biden’s latest comments are “another example of how delusional he is,” a second Border Patrol agent said.

“It’s in their narrative to downplay the destabilization of the U.S. What could possibly be more important than criminals and terrorists infiltrating the country and tens of thousands of fentanyl overdoses, mostly being young adults,” the agent added.

Border Patrol agents apprehended 98 migrants in fiscal year 2022, compared to zero in fiscal year 2019. Federal border authorities also apprehended nearly 800 people affiliated with gangs between October 2021 and September 2022.

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told the DCNF that Biden was more concerned with his political goals than with securing the border.

“The President’s most fundamental job is the safety and security of the American people. He’s failing. With a record number of people and dangerous drugs flowing across our borders, the President owes it to this country to go to the border and develop a strategy of security. Unfortunately, President Biden’s record speaks for itself. He cares more about politics than American lives,” Judd said.

As the force grapples with the policy changes, morale is tanking and the agency is scrambling to address the issue. The rank-and-file agents are wondering if Biden cares about the issues they face each day.

“I’d ask Biden what’s more important than the worst immigration crisis in U.S. history. I’d also ask if 3 suicides in a matter of weeks is normal,” a third Border Patrol agent said, referring to the three suicides that recently occurred in a three-week period.

The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
