NEVER SPOKE: Former Border Patrol Chief Says He Never Had One Convo With Biden, Harris [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.04.24

Former Chief of U.S. Border Patrol Raul Ortiz sat down with 60 Minutes over the weekend to discuss the crisis at the southern border. Ortiz made the shocking revelation that he never spoke to President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris during his time under this administration.

Fox News border correspondent Bill Melugin shared a clip of the interview on X:

Wow. Raul Ortiz, who served as the Chief of U.S. Border Patrol under Biden from August 2021 through May 2023, says he has never had a conversation with Biden or VP Kamala Harris. Think about how many high-profile events happened in that stretch. 15,000 Haitians under Del Rio bridge, false whipping narrative, end of Title 42, record-setting illegal crossings. And the White House allegedly doesn’t speak to the Chief overseeing 20,000 agents on the front lines? “That’s a problem,” Ortiz told 60 Minutes. 

“I’ve never had one conversation with the president or the vice president for that matter,” Ortiz says. “That’s a problem.”

“Do you believe the White House has sent mixed messages to migrants,” the reporter asks Ortiz.

“Most definitely,” he says.
