Border patrol chief says Biden punished him for offering 'feedback'

Rodney Scott - the former chief of the United States Border Patrol - claims that President Joe Biden punished him for providing feedback regarding the administration's southern border policies. 

Scott made the claim during a recent interview with the Fox News Channel.

He says that the situation got to a point at which Biden tried to reassign him.

Scott, however, decided to resign, and now Scott is revealing all of the details about the situation.

Biden's "photo-op"

Scott appeared on Fox News to discuss the trip that Biden made to the U.S.-Mexico border this past week. In fact, both Biden and former President Donald Trump made separate trips to view, firsthand, the crisis.

Biden was heavily criticized for the trip - and not just for his open border policies.

Fox News, separately, reported:

Biden will visit Brownsville, Texas, which ranks as the 29th-most trafficked town by illegal border-crossers, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Former President Trump, meanwhile, is set to hold a competing visit to the border, though he will arrive at Eagle Pass, Texas, one of the most heavily-trafficked towns in the country.

It is for this reason that Scott referred to Biden's visit as merely a "photo op."

"[I]t's for the cameras... I hate to get political, but I believe the reason that the Biden administration is down there is if he got that briefing in the White House, there'd be no cameras. There'd be no show," Scott said.

"I can tell you from my experience"

Scott went on to detail his decision to retire from Border Patrol. He had been the chief in 2021, under the Trump administration.

"I hope [agents are] free to speak openly. But I can tell you, from my experience in the Biden administration, that was not the norm. If they speak freely, they'll probably be out of a job. That is exactly what happened to me," Scott said.

He continued, "I was following orders to a certain extent. But I gave feedback, and I told them where I thought things were going to go wrong – And they did not listen to any of the advice we gave them whatsoever."

Scott went on to reveal that the situation reached a point at which the Biden administration decided to "reassign" him, and it was at this point that Scott decided to simply retire.

As the 2024 general election shapes up, it is looking more and more as though the southern border crisis is a significant losing issue for Biden, and Scott's testimony is not going to help matters for the president.
