The border Patrol agent killed in high speed car chase with ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. So called president says he has more important things to do than take care of the border. WAKE up America. He is intentionally destroying America.

Border Patrol Agent killed during high speed chase with illegal immigrants days after Biden was in AZ but “had more important things to do ” rather than visit the border. Very dangerous situation and security issue created by the government Americans “voted” for. It’s just going to get worse. Thank you, Georgia. God help America.
Wesley Hunt tweeted,
Just one day after Joe Biden refused to visit our southern border because he had, “more important things to do,” we lose one of our best and bravest in the line of duty. Enough is enough! Securing our border must be priority #1 for the 118th Congress.
