Border Patrol Agents Confronted Mayorkas In El Paso. Here’s What Was Said

Border Patrol agents confronted Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas during a recent visit to El Paso, Texas, according to an agent in the room during the meeting who spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The agent, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak, said a colleague confronted Mayorkas and accused him of making empty promises about helping with the surge in illegal immigration, falsely asserting that the border is “secure” and lambasting the force. Mayorkas made the visit to El Paso on Tuesday as the area is overwhelmed by a recent surge in illegal immigrants reaching its border with Mexico and as the expected end of Title 42, the public health expulsion order, threatens to make matters even worse.

The Washington Examiner first reported the confrontation, which occurred during a meeting with a limited group of senior and rank-and-file agents to discuss the rise in suicides in the agency, citing three government officials.

During the meeting, at least one agent asked Mayorkas why he hasn’t fulfilled their requests for additional border security equipment, and instead has chosen to publicly slander them, according to the agent in the room who spoke with the DCNF.
