On Wednesday, Fox News reporter Bill Melugin made damaging revelations about President Joe Biden’s callous approach toward the border problem.
Melugin tweeted, “An observation on deteriorating Border Patrol mood. A BP agent dies in the line of duty one day after the President claims the border is not really essential enough to visit; I haven’t seen any response from the White House about his death.”
Before flying to AZ to commemorate the CHIPS and Science Act on Tuesday, Biden was questioned why his trip to Arizona would not include a visit to the border, where a migrant crisis is still unfolding.
“More significant things are going on,” Biden responded.
One day later, a Border Patrol agent was killed when his ATV crashed while attempting to stop migrants in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, the core of the border crisis, early on Wednesday morning.
“A Border Agent posted to the McAllen Station monitoring the international border on an all-terrain vehicle was chasing a group of suspects who had illegally entered the country when he was involved in a crash close to Mission, Texas,” said Customs and Border Protection in a statement.
“He was discovered unconscious by other agents, who immediately began life-saving efforts and contacted EMS,” according to the statement.
The agent was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
The White House, on the other hand, did not issue a statement recognizing the Border Patrol agent’s tragic death, nor did White House Press Sec. Karine Jean-Pierre mention the tragedy during Wednesday’s news conference.
Not only are Border Patrol agents put in danger by illegal immigrants, but the organization is presently facing a suicide pandemic among agents on its front trenches of the problem.
What about the ‘whip’ allegations?
According to reports, the inquiry into the incident for which mounted Border Patrol agents was wrongly accused of “whipping” Haitian refugees is still ongoing.
In July, the CBP Office of Professional Responsibility issued a study that confirmed Border Patrol employees never “whipped” Haitian migrants.
The inquiry, however, revealed “failures at several levels of the agency, a lack of adequate standards and training, and unprofessional and unsafe actions by several individual officers,” according to CBP.
