The Border is a hot topic ever since South Americans decided to mass migrate here. That would be fine if they all intended to come here legally. But many of these migrants have no intention of following our laws, in fact, they are attacking our Border agents. Since The Caravan’s arrival, Border agents have been assaulted 300% more often.
Agents were attacked as recently as New Year’s Eve in another attempt to illegally get over the wall.
“More than a dozen migrants were apprehended after 150 migrants tried to climb the border fence in San Diego, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
According to the agency, 45 migrants turned back due to CBP’s increased presence at the border before another group of migrants started throwing rocks at agents.”
“These incursions are organized they are bringing people down there for the express purpose of provoking a confrontation,” said Border Patrol agent Joshua Wilson.
“Wilson is also the executive vice president of the local Border Patrol agent union in San Diego and says the incidents are indicative of why they need more border wall funding.
“Having that barrier helps prevent many assaults on agents and that’s something the public really needs to understand,” said Wilson, “It’s not just a border security measure it’s a measure for agents safety as well.”
“Multiple published reports have indicated that migrants are arriving at the border in poor health and some are carrying multiple infectious diseases. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security has warned there are as many as 500 criminals in the caravan.”
Yet the Democrats don’t seem to understand the need for a Border Wall. They think they are sticking it to Trump when in actuality they are hurting American Citizens. And they are making it harder to defend our country.
