United States Border Patrol agent Hector Garza said the U.S. government is “completing the smuggling cycle” by bringing unaccompanied minors into the United States.
Indeed, since September, there have been at least 50,000 unaccompanied youths who have illegally crossed the Texas border.
And many of those children, it’s been reported, are literally walking up to U.S. border agents in the hopes that they will be rescued.
“Why would anyone want to hire a smuggler when the U.S. government is actually doing it for free,” Garza asked. “We apprehend unaccompanied minors, we process these illegals, and then release them to their family members in the US. We’re just completing that smuggling cycle.” Garza also noted that this administration is giving illegal immigrants from countries other than Mexico a “free pass.”
Garza also said that the added pressure of having to handle the recent influx of illegals is only compounded by the growing threat from the Mexican cartels. And as a result, Garza says “resources are running dry and morale is at a very low level,” but despite it all, “agents come to work every day, with their head held high.”
