President Joe Biden’s former Border Security chief, Rodney Scott, stated on “Special Report” Tuesday that Border Patrol made it clear to the present administration in briefings that ending Trump’s insurance policies would trigger an unmitigable catastrophe on the border. 

“We made it very clear that if we dropped all of the initiatives that have been put in place over the last several years that we would get an influx of mass migration that we would not be able to control,” he stated. 

Scott additionally took photographs at Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas, saying that he is aware of “what needs to take place.”

“He clearly understands and knows how to control the border and what needs to take place,” Scott stated. “It was very clear there are people involved in this process that have been involved before, and they’re choosing not to take simple, commonsense steps to secure the border.”

At one level, the U.S. was paying $5 million per day, in accordance with Scott. 

He stated, “Many of those projects today are just still on hold, so we’re paying contractors. For a while, it was almost five million a day between DoD and DHS to not build the border wall,” Scott instructed host Bret Baier.

What is left of former President Donald Trump’s border wall are “stacks and stacks” of panels, “hundreds of miles of fiber optic cabling, cameras” which are simply “sitting there,” Scott stated.

Scott stated that one of many elementary variations he noticed between the Biden and Trump administrations was “actually trying to control the border” and likewise “acknowledging that border security is critical to Homeland Security.”


The messaging from Biden of a softer strategy to the border slowly chiseled away on the stronghold on the border because it precipitated a rise in encounters. 

Scott defined, “The result of that is the message goes out. And then instead of having a couple of hundred encounters a day, we quickly went up to about 6,000 encounters a day.

Before Scott retired he observed that Border Patrol caught people from 150 different countries coming through Mexico into the United States.”

Scott additionally stated that he was “outraged” that “all of sudden” due course of “went out the window” after brokers on horses have been criticized for the best way they handled migrants who illegally crossed the southern border into the United States. 

He stated, “Border security protects legal immigration, and those guys know it, and that’s what they’ve been doing. And all of a sudden, now due process applies to everybody else, but not them.”

“And then all of a sudden, our horse patrol doing what they’re supposed to do, which is prevent people from illegally entering our home, are now the villains.”
