The Border Patrol Has Been Asking for Barriers Along the Border by The Elephant's Child

Laredo Sector Border Control rescued a family from the Rio Grande River in an unsecured section of the border with Mexico. The woman and her 10-month-old child were stranded in the river when smugglers abandoned them, and left them overnight in the icy river. The Border Patrol took them to a local hospital for evaluation, but they needed no further treatment. During the last fiscal year Border Patrol officers rescued more than 4,300 migrants in distress. During the first two months of this fiscal year, the numbers jumped 75 percent over the same period last year.

The wife of a Border Patrol agent has invited Nancy Pelosi to visit the border to see for herself why walls are needed.

“We would like to show you around! You don’t need to bring any security detail. Our husbands/significant others are actually very good at their jobs, thank goodness!” Jill Demanski, the wife of a Texas-based Border Patrol agent wrote in a letter to Speaker Pelosi. She told Fox News she wrote the letter because she felt Pelosi needs to see this area of the border in person in order to make an informed decision about border security funding

She emphasized that elected representative should meet with the agents on the ground to get a more accurate understanding of the need for physical barriers. She said the border wall is not a Trump issue and that Border Patrol agents have been asking for  barriers along the border for years. Attacks on Border Patrol agents have been increasing in this fiscal year.

The Center for Immigration Studies has calculated that installing barriers in the areas where they are needed would pay for themselves in the reduced costs of crime, welfare, and schooling for illegal aliens. They scream that “No Human is Illegal”, but anyone entering the country without a visa is illegal, and an alien is merely someone who owes their allegiance to another country.

Some opinions are more important than other opinions, and not just because they agree or disagree. In this case you have the opinion of someone who spent a good portion of his life running another country, and winning elections, so his comments are certainly worth our attention. He did a pretty good job in Canada.
