A Homeland Security whistleblower is offering a glimpse into how officers facing the brunt of the illegal immigration crisis are faring — saying Biden policies “were implemented  irresponsibly” by people who are removed from the situation on the ground and “do not have any sense of realism.”

In an interview with Fox News‘ Sara Carter on “Hannity” Thursday evening, the unidentified DHS official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed increasing frustration at the federal government’s handling of the situation.

“People are just very burned out and there’s not a lot of optimism that it’s going to get better anytime soon,” the unnamed official, a male, told Carter.

The official went on to say that he was frustrated with President Biden’s border policies.

“I think the policies were implemented irresponsibly and I think they do not have any sense of realism,” the man explained.

“The people that implemented them, because they are not down here and haven’t been here, they don’t have significant law enforcement background. This is all something that until you have done this job, or you’ve actually had some feedback from people who have, you’re not well-equipped to handle the human capital involved in working this,” he continued.

The DHS official also alleged to Carter that unaccompanied minors were being moved across the US with the help of taxpayer dollars.

“My understanding is, they are going to several directions and oftentimes the NGOs are involved on some level, the government is involved,” he said.

A DHS spokesperson did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment on the report.

The Biden administration’s undoing of former President Donald Trump’s border policies has prompted a flood of Central American and Mexican illegal migrants at the US border, including thousands of unescorted children.

Central Americans looking for refuge from the Northern Triangle countries have taken these policy moves, as well as the overwhelmingly more welcoming tone from Democrats, as a sign that President Biden is inviting them to cross the border.

Insisting that the border was not facing a crisis, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in early March that the problems the agency faced should be blamed on the previous administration.

The data, however, overwhelmingly shows that migrants were flooding the border because they believed Biden would welcome them with open arms.

Late last month, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador blamed the new president for the crisis, arguing that the “expectations” he set left migrants with the perception that they would be let into the US.
