Judd told Jenkins that the Biden administration’s "catch and release" system whereby migrants are freed into the U.S. after initially being detained in the border region simply hasn’t helped in any way.

Vice President Kamala Harris hasn’t visited the US.-Mexico border region since accepting a border-crisis assignment in late March from President Biden, and it’s not an accident according to the head of the Border Patrol agents.

“Because if she goes to the U.S. border, people are going to expect her to fix the problem, so she avoids it,” Brandon Judd, president of the 18,000-member National Border Patrol Council, said while on “Fox News Live.”

Judd told host Griff Jenkins, “That’s disgusting. Because that’s putting politics ahead of what’s best for this country. Going to the border to view the crisis firsthand is “what the president and the vice president are supposed to do.”

Judd also spoke about what Border Patrol personnel have described as a surge in the number of apprehensions of illegal immigrants in the border region while on the show. Jenkins said he was told agents apprehended more than 1,600 migrants over the last 24 hours.

“It’s really getting pretty much at a point they haven’t even seen in their 20-year career,” Jenkins said, referring to his Border Patrol sources.

Judd told Jenkins that the Biden administration’s “catch and release” system whereby migrants are freed into the U.S. after initially being detained in the border region simply hasn’t helped in any way.

“As long as we continue to release people into the United States after they violate our laws, with no consequences, people are going to continue to come. That’s the simple fact.” — Brandon Judd, president, National Border Patrol Council.

Judd noted that Latin Americans are attracted to the U.S. by their intentions to get jobs and an improved standard of living, but said they need to pursue entry into the U.S. in a lawful manner.

“We have the biggest open arms. We want to accept people into this country but we want to do it legally, not illegally,” he said.

He then accused both the right and left of attempting to politicize border issues but claimed the left was doing more harm, arguing the left’s approach was playing into the hands of the cartels that engage in trafficking of people, drugs, and weapons.

“The left wants to excuse illegal immigration, they want to excuse the cartels abusing these children, taking these children and sexually abusing them, physically abusing them, mentally abusing them, they want to excuse this and they continue, by policy, they continue to perpetuate this situation and it’s gaining cartels ground and it’s making them billions of dollars every year off of human misery.”

On March 24, Vice President Kamala Harris tweeted that she had been assigned by President Biden to lead the administration’s effort “to address the root causes of migration” in Mexico and the so-called “Northern Triangle” Central American countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.
