意味. ロン・ジョンソン, R-Wisc。, ジェームズ・ランクフォード, R-オクラホマ。, ランドポール, R-Ky., ジョシュホーリー, R-Mo。, とリックスコット, R-Fla。, センに促した. ゲイリー・ピーターズ, D-me。, 国土安全保障に関する上院委員会の委員長, and ranking member Sen. ロブ・ポートマン, D-オハイオ, to hear from Scott, who retired in June after 30 years in Border Patrol when the Biden administration forced him out.
“月曜日に, we received a copy of a letter that the former Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, Rodney Scott, sent to you both as well as Senate Majority Leader Schumer and Minority Leader McConnell,” the senators wrote. “This letter, which was dated thirteen days ago, is a scathing first-hand account of this administration’s failure to address the crisis at the border.”
The letter went on to note how Scott alleged in his Sept. 11 missive that the Biden administration’s team at the Department of Homeland Security “is laser-focused on expediting the flow of migrants into the U.S. and downplaying the significant vulnerability this creates for terrorists, narcotics smugglers, human traffickers, and even hostile nations to gain access to our homeland.”
Scott also said he “witnessed a lack of any meaningful effort to secure our borders. Contrary to the current rhetoric, this is not simply another illegal immigration surge. This is a national security threat.”
Explaining how Scott is willing to testify under oath about what he has seen along the border, the senators attached his five-page letter.
“Given this Committee’s hearing on Tuesday on the threats to the homeland, we respectfully request that you allow Mr. Scott to provide his testimony in front of this Committee as soon as possible to ensure the completeness of the record on this very important topic,” 彼らは付け加えた.
Scott wrote in part that he is “sickened by the avoidable and rapid disintegration of what was arguably the most effective border security in our Nation’s history.” He blamed the deteriorating conditions on inexperienced political appointees who allegedly ignore the advice of seasoned professionals and provide false information to Congress.
“In my professional assessment, アメリカ. Border Control is rapidly losing the situational awareness required to know who or what is entering our Homeland,” Scott warned. “The ability of USBP to detect and interdict those that want to evade apprehension is being degraded daily.”
