Border Patrol Agent: 'We Will Be on Duty, We Don’t Take 5 Weeks Off’
House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul has voiced concern that children are likely to die at the U.S. border as temperatures rise in August.
National Border Patrol Council Vice President Shawn Moran went “On The Record,” where he said this is a health crisis that agents see every year and prepare for with search-and-rescue teams.
Moran said it would be good if Mexico did something to disrupt the flow of people using its country to get into the U.S.
“But, you know, Border Patrol agents, we will be on duty. We don’t take five weeks off. We will be here doing our jobs, and that includes rescuing people, especially kids who probably don’t know survival skills and, you know, are going through a very difficult, difficult period trying to get into the U.S.,” he said.
Congress is going on recess in four days without a solution to the illegal immigration influx.
