During a public briefing on border security with President Donald Trump, Texas Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz near the Rio Grande in McAllen, Texas, a border patrol officer stood up for the president in his push for a wall on the southern border.
Leftist politicians and the establishment media have tried to paint the wall as alarmist and unnecessary.
This border patrol agent who has seen the immigration crisis firsthand went after the media’s distortions by setting the record straight.
“So far this sector has apprehended folks from 41 different countries. Just yesterday we apprehended 133 people from countries other than Central America and Mexico,” he began. “That includes individuals from India, Pakistan, China, Romania, Ecuador, Nicaragua, on and on and on. And so, I know we keep talking about the family unit and unaccompanied children.”
In other words, it isn’t just helpless migrants escaping poverty who are coming across our border. It’s unknown people from all over the world, many of whom could be dangerous.
“That makes up about, typically about 60, 70 percent. We’ve seen a change over the last couple of weeks where that number’s less than 50 percent of the apprehensions we make here in South Texas.”
This means the number of individual males coming across the border has suddenly increased in recent weeks.
“So, South Texas continues to lead the country in apprehensions, as well as marijuana seizures between the ports of entry,” he continued. “So CBP and DHS are committed to both our border security mission, as well as our humanitarian mission.”
He then took a moment to thank the president and the members of Congress who took the time to see the border for themselves.
“Mr. President, Senators, we couldn’t do it without your support,” he said.
“We really appreciate you coming down here. It means an awful lot to the men and women of DHS, CBP, the border patrol, our local law enforcement. Thank you.”

Thank God for these border patrol agents who work hard every day to protect our nation while exposing the lies exposed the lies of the left and establishment media by sharing the facts.
His words emphasized the need for border wall funding now. Democrats must end the shutdown by giving the country the funding it needs to remain a safe and sovereign nation.
