Border Agents React To National Guard Stepping In!

While politicians debate whether Nation Guard members are needed along the border, some Border Agents have already made up their mind.

Border Agents are saying they appreciate the National Guard being there, and any help they can get.

As the debate plays out over whether National Guard troops are needed at the border, some border agents say they are grateful for any help they could get – particularly the air support.

“Over the last few years, our attrition has been outpacing our hiring,” said Acting U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost, “so this is a good stop-gap measure, having the guard here.”

But that move has not come without controversy.

The union boss of the Border Patrol on Thursday said President Trump’s decision to send National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border was "a colossal waste of resources."

"We have seen no benefit," said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the Los Angeles Times reported.

But some agents at the border say they do need the help.


The Rio Grande Valley is the busiest sector of the border, accounting for 15,000 arrests a year, which is 38% of all apprehensions nationwide. One patrol agent said they are averaging 500 arrests per day.

Do you think more help is needed along the border? Is sending National Guardsmen to help the right thing to do?
