‘Fox & Friends” reporter Lawrence Jones described what is going on at the U.S. border involving the danger the cartels pose to the National Guard while bluntly telling the Biden administration to “get down here and do your job.”
The Texas Department of Public Safety is reporting that suspected cartel members were taunting Texas National Guard troops and firing shots across the border at them in Roma, Texas this week, according to Fox News. Lawrence Jones was on the ground with Texas officials getting a firsthand look at what was transpiring there.
“It was rough out there when it comes to what these National Guardsmen are dealing with as well the troopers on the ground,” Jones stated. “We can’t confirm they are part of the cartel, we just know the cartel works with these people.”
“They were taunting… this was about a week ago when they were taunting the National Guardsmen. Yesterday, around noon, they fired off two shots at the National Guard. So, the governor has the Texas Rangers investigating the situation,” he reported.
“When I talk to my sources, they put it very simply. During the Trump administration, they were going on the offense. Really going after the cartel. They made some headway. Of course, the drugs were still pouring in, but the cartels were in a defensive posture. Since Biden has been in office, they’ve gotten a little bold. They’re firing shots,” Jones noted.

“Now, technically you would think that America, the United States would go on the offense when that happens. They’re not. And so Texas is left to investigate,” Jones remarked while stating that the investigation stops at the border and does not continue into Mexico where the shots were fired from.
“We got our guys being shot at now and Biden and Kamala are nowhere to be found on this issue,” he asserted.
Jones pointed out the cartels own the border currently because it’s not just drugs they are smuggling, it’s human trafficking as well. He claims the cartels are winning this fight.
After asking where the money is going to keep coming from to continue this fight and pointing out that Texas is footing the entire bill, Jones turned directly to the Biden administration over the issue.
He contended that Biden doesn’t want Texas to succeed at stopping illegal aliens from coming over the border.
“They don’t want Texas to be able to conduct these arrests at the border. They say this is a federal issue. You’re right, it is a federal issue. So, get down here and do your job,” Jones angrily stated.
“Earlier this week we had some footage when I was on a ride-along with the Texas Department of Public Safety Special Operations Unit. You may have seen 60 illegals that were captured on private property. So, the guy calls Texas DPS and he says, look… come out here on the scene, arrest these guys. Border Patrol runs to go get these guys and they say, essentially, off the record, we’ve been getting a lot of flack from the administration because Texas is essentially making us look bad. They can just simply do their job,” he commented bluntly stating that the Border Patrol wants to do their job but the Biden administration won’t let them.
