Border Patrol Official: ‘Morale Is at a Very Low Level’

Morale is waning among Border Patrol agents stationed along the southern border. Hector Garza, the secretary and treasurer of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 in Laredo, Texas, told Sean Hannity his agents go into work every day with their heads held high. But they don’t leave that way.

“We are trained very well, however, at this point our resources are running dry and morale is at a very low level, but our agents continue to do the job as best as they can,” Garza said.

Garza said the federal government is actually completing the “smuggling cycle” by releasing the illegal immigrants to their family members inside the U.S.

“For the federal government to come out and say that our borders are more secure than ever, that is a very naïve statement,” he said.
