After the Biden regime scapegoated Border Patrol agents for doing their job protecting the Texas border last week, Mexican drug cartels have reportedly ordered their smugglers to provoke more confrontations with agents so Democrats and their allies in the media can misconstrue their actions as excessive force, and more agents can be “forced off the line.”
Last week, the entire Democrat-media complex falsely accused Border Patrol agents of whipping Haitian illegal immigrants who were attempting to cross the Rio Grande River into Del Rio, Texas.
These claims were quickly debunked by Border Patrol officials and the photographer who took the pictures. The agents on horseback were using long reins to control their horses, twirling them to move their horses forward, not to whip migrants.
Photographer Paul Ratje said he and his colleagues never saw them whipping anyone, but nonetheless, activists and elected Democrats—including Joe Biden—eagerly fueled the racially charged lie to deflect blame for border crisis.
“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it’s outrageous,” Biden said, making a whipping motion with his arm. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences,” he said on Friday.
FOX News correspondent Lara Logan reported on Twitter Monday that according to law enforcement sources in the Rio Grand Valley, two vicious drug trafficking syndicates—the Gulf Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG)—have determined that U.S. Border Patrol agents are “unprotected under the Biden administration.”
“Agents advised there will be no support from Chief Ortiz at the top, they are on their own & to expect things to get much worse,” Logan tweeted. Raul L. Ortiz became the 25th Chief of the United States Border Patrol on August 15, 2021.
Intel assessment from Gulf Cartel/CJNG is that agents are unprotected under Biden Administration. Confirmed by official guidance – agents advised there will be no support from Chief Ortiz at the top, they are on their own & to expect things to get much worse.

The award-winning journalist also reported last week that she has been hearing alarming assessments from bioweapons specialists and intelligence agents, who say the border crisis is leading to a spike in COVID cases wherever the migrants are sent.
“They know also that everywhere that there’s been a mass migration of illegal immigrants, there’s been a spike in COVID cases in this country,” Logan told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Tuesday.
“Bioweapons specialists and intel agents say that is typical of how you disburse a virus, if you did something like a virus bomb or a virus attack in your own country or another country. Those are questions that we don’t get a chance to ask,” she added.
“They know also that everywhere that there’s been a mass migration of illegal immigrants, there’s been a spike in COVID cases in this country,” she said.
The Biden regime in July reversed its decision to end a Trump administration border public health policy that helped keep the border secure and new COVID cases out of the country.
“A spike in coronavirus infections in Mexico and along the southern U.S. border has shelved Biden administration plans to phase out the controversial public health law used to return more than 1 million migrants to Mexico,” The Washington Post reported on July 28th.
“The delay points to President Biden’s deepening predicament at the border, where the migration surge he has described as seasonal is growing larger this summer while coronavirus caseloads rise,” the Post added.
Border Patrol agents reacted to Joe Biden’s threat against those who were just doing their job with stunned outrage.
“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” one agent told Fox News. “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”
The agent asked, “Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?”
Another said: “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”
Brandon Judd, head of the National Border Patrol Council, wondered how there could possibly be a fair investigation after Biden had already publicly condemned the agents.
“Now that the president of the United States has already said they did wrong, how is an investigator supposed to do a true and honest investigation?” he told Fox News. “Because if that investigator finds they did nothing wrong — and they didn’t do anything wrong — but if that investigator finds they didn’t do anything wrong, how is that investigator’s job going to go?
Judd said since Biden made his “completely and totally outrageous” comments, his phone has “blown up” with calls from incensed agents.
Former acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan told Fox News agents have been “condemned, careers ruined and reputations irreparably harmed, without any due process — all to distract from the out of control catastrophic crisis at our southern border.”
“How will they get a fair impartial inquiry now when everyone in the chain of command all the way up to the president of the United States has already concluded they are already guilty of some form of atrocity?” Morgan, also a former Border Patrol chief, told Fox News in an interview.
“For the president to say that, he has become emotionally unhinged and caved to the woke cancel culture,” he said. “The agents feel betrayed, stabbed in the back, demoralized.”
“This year’s ongoing immigration crisis has single-handedly done more to hurt the morale of the Border Patrol workforce than any other year in its history, and it didn’t have to happen like this,” National Border Patrol Council Vice President Jon Anfinsen told Fox News.
National Border Patrol Council president Brandon Judd told Fox News host Sean Hannity last week that hundreds of Border Patrol agents are off the job every day from contracting COVID from infected illegal immigrants. Judd said that if Joe Biden were not “president,” he would arrest him for “aiding and abetting.”
