LIVE NOW– Border Patrol agent: "Just this morning, over 280 illegal immigs at the border turned themselves in to us. We lost count at 280"

Cabrera also said the Border Pratrol’s apprehension success rate is a whole lot lower than what’s being reported. “The number out there before has been that the border is secure, that we’re at 80 percent or 90 percent success rate in apprehensions when in actuality we’re lucky to get into the 30s. The Border Patrol, historically, has been good at hiding the true number of people that get away.”
The Daily Mail has also noted that known gang members are among the estimated 47,000 children that have illegally crossed into the U.S. since the beginning of 2014.
Cabrera also said the federal government is keeping border agents “in the dark,” and has been ignoring the concerns of agents on the ground. “For the last month we’ve been warning them that we were getting overrun and nobody seems to take note up on the DHS level. The Border Patrol has done a lot to intimidate agents from speaking out.”
