Border Agents, Cops, Uninvited from Biden Event

Officials in the Biden administration decided to uninvite almost all of the Border Patrol agents and other law enforcement officers who responded to the Robb Elementary School shooting from a meeting with the President in Uvalde, Texas. Even though the event was scheduled to occur in a large open-space facility, lack of space was cited as the reason for the disinvites, prompting some to speculate that Biden merely wanted a quick photo op.

A few days after the horrific shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, law enforcement who responded to the attack received an invitation to meet with President Biden during his planned visit to the city. Many had already accepted the invite and were scheduled to attend the private address from the President. However, almost all were later informed the invitations were rescinded, and they were no longer invited.

The meeting and private address to the law enforcement officers who responded to the shooting is just one part of President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to Uvalde to address the victims’ families of the tragedy.

What doesn’t add up to many is that the meeting location is outside and can accommodate hundreds, yet more than 90% of the Border Patrol agents who were invited are now being told time and space are limited and they cannot attend:

More than 80 Border Patrol agents, including several members of the Border Patrol’s BORTAC special response team involved in the response to the school shooting, received the invitation. Late Saturday evening, the Border Patrol was notified the President could only meet with 7 of the more than 80 agents who responded to the shooting.

The response to the shooting was a combined effort from the BORTAC tactical unit, Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol, and other first responders. BORTAC unit members killed the shooter after entering the classroom, while others assisted with removing students and teachers from the building. One BORTAC agent sustained a gunshot wound to the head and required stitches. First responders and good Samaritans also provided emergency medical attention to the survivors of the brutal attack.

A senior Customs and Border Protection source told Breitbart Texas that deciding which officers will be allowed to attend on such short notice will be difficult and that agents who responded to the shooting will feel “left out” and their contribution to the effort rendered unimportant if they are told to stay away from the event:

“These agents are still traumatized by the incident; the venue is large, and they are not going to buy this excuse,” the source told Breitbart Texas… “It appears now as if this planned meeting was nothing more than a photo opportunity with the law enforcement community,” the source says.

The shooting left 19 children and two adults dead. Hospitals treated fourteen children and at least one adult in Uvalde and San Antonio. The shooter, Salvador Ramos, 18, was killed by the BORTAC unit and died at the scene.
