Border Patrol Union Responds to NYT Op-Ed Call to Shame Agents

A human rights professor from London says U.S. Border Patrol agents should be outed publicly and shamed for mistreating illegal aliens.

In her op-ed piece for The New York Times over the weekend, she goes on to say that Border Patrol and other federal agents must be pressured into ending the "mass atrocity" taking place in the U.S.

“For them we're an easy target. They can shame us and try to make us feel bad, but at the end of the day the folks that should be the object of concern would be Congress. They alone have the ability to fix this problem,” says Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council.

Cabrera says the left has really taken advantage of the recent photo of a father and daughter drowned in the Rio Grande.

“We just had three young children under the age of three and a young mother found dead in the brush trying to make their way here, yet for some reason nobody is talking about that,” he says.

Cabrera says their blood lies solely on the hands of Congress, adding that Border Patrol was not built to provide care for thousands of migrants and their children, but that's the job they've been given and they're doing the best they can.

“These facilities were built under the Obama administration and no one had a problem with it, and now all of a sudden with a different administration it's a concentration camp, that's just silly,” he says.
