The White House Refuses To Let Border Patrol Agents Do Their Job


“The Biden administration is canceling contracts. They're taking away resources that Border Patrol agents need to do their job. The ranchers and the property owners are good people and are having to pay for damage to their crops, to their fences, to their property because you have the got-aways and those that are crossing — the criminal element — that are crossing the border. As we’re finding out the criminal element has seen an uptick in activity at the border because they know the Biden administration is not going to take them to court. They're not going to be tough on them.”


Biden’s Border Crisis Jeopardizes The Safety Of Women And Girls


“These ranchers go out every day, they have found dead bodies. They have property that has been destroyed. They know that it is drug smugglers, it is human traffickers that are trying to evade capture that are coming across their property. These guys want to help because they realize this is a humanitarian crisis. It is also a national security crisis. As you heard from one of the Texas Rangers this morning, individuals from 150 different countries have been apprehended at this southern border. We have had people on the terrorist watch list that have been apprehended this year at the southern border. And we know that these women and children are sexually abused as they make this journey, as they pay these high fees to the cartels. Then, they're being thrown into sex trafficking and human trafficking rings once they get to the U.S.”
