Border Patrol Union criticizes feds after 'warning' sent ahead of migrant 'enforcement operation' in Texas
The Border Patrol Union accused federal agencies of tipping off illegal immigrants by announcing a "targeted enforcement operation" in Texas hours before it was set to take place.

The Border Patrol Union criticized the Department of Homeland Security Monday night for announcing a "targeted enforcement operation" in Texas to remove or detain illegal immigrants - accusing the feds of tipping off migrants hours before the operation is supposed to take place.

Agents from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers are set to carry out the initiative on Tuesday in El Paso, where approximately 2,200 migrants are currently camped out or living on the streets a few blocks from major ports of entry that connect the city with Juarez, Mexico.

"Nothing like publicly announcing that dangerous people will be arrested, while warning them ahead of time exactly where to run and hide to avoid arrest," the Border Patrol Union tweeted late Monday evening.

The National Border Patrol Council, which represents approximately 18,000 Border Patrol agents and support personnel, went on to say the entire operation was a "sad joke" and "another pandering PR stunt."

"Serious law enforcement leaders don't behave this way," the union added.

The CBP said the operation will see agents "process individuals for vetting and placement into Title 42 expulsion or Title 8 removal proceedings, as applicable," adding that any individuals posing a national security risk will be transported to ICE for detention.

The Title 42 public health order, which has been used to expel hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants quickly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is set to expire on Thursday. It was initially issued in 2020 under then-President Donald Trump.

In March, nearly half of all migrant encounters ended in a Title 42 expulsion.

Fox News Digital previously reported on Monday that a border surge near El Paso has witnessed over 26,000 apprehensions and over 7,000 "gotaways" within just 72 hours, according to official statistics.

Despite the Biden administration repeatedly denying the ongoing migrant crisis, the White House announced last week 1,500 troops would be sent to the border to help support local border officials.

The White House has also mostly skipped out on visiting the southern border.

President Biden made a single visit in January 2023 after being in office for nearly two years. Vice President Kamala Harris, despite being named immigration czar, visited a CBP facility in El Paso in June 2021.

This was all intentional and it is a war against America and all its citizens.

Joe Biden has allowed millions into this country within two years. He got away with it. The world's worst immigration crisis will only get worse starting this week.

Reminiscent of the Oakland mayor tipping off illegals of impending ICE "raids".

Um-hum, that wonderful city by the bay, where your chances of being a victim of property crime are 1 in 17.

Biden’s embrace of open borders is an impeachable offense,

Article II, Section 1, Clause 8:

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

What is the time relationship between a President’s assumption of office and his taking the oath? Apparently, the former comes first, this answer appearing to be the assumption of the language of the clause. The Second Congress assumed that President George Washington took office on March 4, 1789, 1  although he did not take the oath until the following April 30.

That the oath the President is required to take might be considered to add anything to the powers of the President, because of his obligation to  preserve, protect and defend the Constitution,  might appear to be rather a fanciful idea. But in President Andrew Jackson’s message announcing his veto of the act renewing the Bank of the United States there is language which suggests that the President has the right to refuse to enforce both statutes and judicial decisions based on his own independent decision that they were unwarranted by the Constitution. 2  The idea next turned up in a message by President Abraham Lincoln justifying his suspension of the writ of habeas corpus without obtaining congressional authorization. 3  And counsel to President Andrew Johnson during his impeachment trial adverted to the theory, but only in passing. 4  Beyond these isolated instances, it does not appear to be seriously contended that the oath adds anything to the President’s powers.

Yep, we can count on the Department of Homeland Insecurity to routinely care for and put the needs of invading illegals ahead of US citizens and legal residents, and especially along our Southern borders.
