Border Chief Makes Dems Eat Crow On Crisis Debate
Democrats love to defend their shaky stance against borders that would stop the overflowing hoards of migrating illegals. Most Democrats have blasted President Trump for calling the need for a wall, a ‘crisis’ while ignoring the real economic and safety impact those crossing illegally have.
This week, they received a cold dose of reality from someone who would know better than anyone the type of crisis America faces at the border. When asked if it’s really a security crisis or just a humanitarian crisis she swiftly responded that it’s both. You know they heated the taste of that crow!
United States Border Patrol Cheif, Carla Provost: “There is an ongoing debate about whether this constitutes a border security crisis or a humanitarian crisis. Let me be clear: it is both.”
Speaking in front of the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday on Capitol Hill, Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost explained how agents are being diverted from their mission of border security in order to care for thousands of unaccompanied children and families illegally crossing the southern border into the United States.
“Each day nearly 25 percent of my agents are diverted away from our border security mission to transport, care for and process family members and unaccompanied minors,” Provost said. “As more migrants arrive with medical needs, agents are transporting and escorting an average of 55 people a day to medical facilities. We are committed to addressing this humanitarian need, but we know when agents are occupied narcotics smugglers, criminal aliens, gang members and others use the opportunity to violate our borders and our laws.”
According to Town Hall, President Trump ordered an additional 1,000 U.S. National Guard troops, this week, to be stationed at the border. Like the already deployed 5,000 troops, they will back Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement in an administrative and logistical capacity.
