Quotes from the news wire:
And I think what is probably most striking from that video, which is if you can see in the background the DHS secretary is standing right there, he does not step up. He does not address any of these concerns from the Border Patrol agents. There's no vision, there's no leadership. He just stands to the side because he knows he cannot talk to these agents and defend what is going down on the border because of the policies of this administration.

So when you close down those pathways like the Biden administration did, they are essentially tying their hands what they can do with these folks and some would say — and I would argue — that's done by design because the only option they really want to do at the end of the day is to release them into the United States.
What those agreements were designed to do was to allow individuals in Central America to seek asylum, seek protection as close to their home country as possible, which is an international norm, anywhere else in the world you try to resettle refugees, and you try to resettle asylum seekers as close to their home countries in safe areas as possible so when conditions improve they can go back to their home country and begin their life.
This administration talks a lot about asylees and needing to protect individuals that are being persecuted, and I think of all the countries we see, at least in this hemisphere, except for maybe Venezuela, Cuba is probably the most oppressive government we have, so the question is why are they not allowing folks from Cuba to resettle in the U.S. like they are folks from Guatemala when the asylum claim from Cuba is likely greater.
In light of events of the past week and the evolving security landscape leading up to the inauguration and at the recommendation of Secret Service Director James Murray, I have instructed Secret Service to begin the National Special Security Event operations for the 2021 Inauguration effective Wednesday, January 13th instead of January 19th, our federal, state, and local partners will continue to coordinate their plans and position resources for this important event.

These billboards are important because we can no longer stand idly by while the public is being misled about the role ICE plays in keeping the public safe, the Trump campaign would be entirely unnecessary if local leaders would do their jobs and protect their communities by partnering with federal law enforcement.
The report that you reference was at the end of the day a very poorly written report, when I talked to career officials in IA, in the office that produced the report, they also had questions about it. They're hard at work on rewriting that report, putting it in some better context and I hope to see that report out soon.
As we approach the July 4th holiday, I have directed the deployment and pre-positioning of Rapid Deployment Teams across the country to respond to potential threats to facilities and property, while the Department respects every American's right to protest peacefully, violence and civil unrest will not be tolerated.
In today's environment, Americans need their sports. It's time to reopen the economy and it's time we get our professional athletes back to work.
