Texas Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales is accusing a top member of the Biden administration of trying to “bullsh*t” him about the national security concerns at the U.S.-Mexico border.

During an interview with the Washington Examiner, Gonzales spoke about a call he had with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, saying he felt like Mayorkas was not being upfront with him.

“We discussed a wide variety of things, but one of the things that I mentioned in particular, I was like, ‘Look, the migrant situation’s absolutely chaotic and terrible, but what keeps me up at night is another 9/11-type of event,’” Gonzales said.

“It was kind of like, dismissive a little bit, and that’s a problem, especially when you’re talking about national security. Like, there are no second chances. You have to get it right every single time, or it’s game over,” he added.

Mayorkas has taken action against horseback Border Patrol agents accused by left-leaning media figures and Democrats of using “whips” and reins to assail Haitian migrants trying to enter the U.S. illegally.

“Border Patrol agents seen on horseback confronting Haitian refugees have been removed from regular duty during an investigation into their actions, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told lawmakers Wednesday,” Newsmax reported Wednesday.

“Videos showed law enforcement officers on horseback using aggressive tactics when confronting migrants in Del Rio, Texas. Some agents appeared to be swinging long reins,” the outlet continued, though Homeland Security officials have said the agents were adhering to their training and attempting to keep the migrants away from horses so they did not get injured.

Still, Mayorkas, in testimony before the House Wednesday and the Senate on Tuesday decried the agents’ behavior, saying he was “horrified” by what he saw in the media, telling Democrats he shared their outrage while pledging to “pull no punches” in ensuring agents would be disciplined if found to have violated their training and enforcement rules.

“The individuals, during the pendency of the investigation, are not conducting law enforcement duties to interact with migrants, but rather are conducting administrative duties,” said Mayorkas, who didn’t say how many agents were being investigated.

“I want to assure you that we are addressing this with tremendous speed and tremendous force. The facts will drive the action we take,” the DHS chief said.

He added, “It will be completed in days – not weeks.”

But Republicans pushed back, with Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., the ranking member of the Homeland Security Committee, remarking that conditions along the U.S.-Mexico border are “absolutely out of control.”

“To me, it’s unbelievable what’s going on at the border,” Katko said.
