Even though Deputy Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol puts on a good face when he is asked about the border, it turns out that he has a bit of a temper behind closed doors.
During the #WhipGate controversy, Chief Ortiz was not really happy with Joe Biden, and for good reason.
Biden all but publicly hung the border agents when it turned out, they did absolutely nothing wrong.
If you remember the incident, border agents were slammed by Biden for allegedly whipping Haitian migrants that were trying to cross the border illegally.
The outrage occurred over a photo from an off angle that made it look like the agents were using the reins to hit migrants.
Biden, at the time, stated, "To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped — it's outrageous.
"I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now, and there will be consequences. There will be consequences."
As it turned out, they were split reins and they were nowhere near the immigrants, but no apology ever came from the White House.
Ortiz was clearly frustrated over the negative coverage for his agents.
In one email, his frustration was coming through, as Ortiz wrote, "This horse business is awfully negative but there are great efforts occurring and we aren't highlighting any of them. Everyday we are providing lifesaving efforts to migrants under the bridge."
"Our agents are being assaulted and we aren't saying a word."
He further stated, "The bus contractors and pilots are dealing with Haitians escaping or trying to overrun drivers and we stay quiet. Agents and pro staff are working 14 hour days in difficult conditions, nothing said.
"We have to change the narrative or these stories will be only story."
According to Brandon Judd, the head of the National Border Patrol Council, this was nothing more than a political hit job from the very beginning for Joe Biden to gain favor with liberal voters.
He stated, "They knew the evidence would ultimately come to light to show the agents not only did nothing wrong but actually carried out their duties lawfully and in accordance to orders from an Executive Branch Department they control. They obviously didn't care.
"They knew by the time all evidence came to light, the damage would be done and the political points they desperately wanted would be scored."
And to this day, Joe Biden has never apologized to those agents.
