On Tuesday, Chris Cabrera, a spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council, appeared on CNN to discuss the Trump administration enforcing America’s border laws.
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin tried to shame Cabrera over the situation with the immigrants at the border. The network was surprised to learn that there are people who are very informed that the immigration policy did not start under President Trump.
“There’s so much being thrown at people who don’t know as much about immigration certainly as you do as a border patrol agent, but there a couple of ways to come into this country if you’re an undocumented immigrant and you come out on the Rio Grande river, that’s illegal,” Baldwin said.
Cabrera countered, “Even if you’re a U.S. citizen, it’s illegal.”
Baldwin then asked specifically about delays for asylum seekers.
Cabrera said bluntly, “We’ve had this situation going on for four years now. I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or another. It started under one and is continuing under another. It hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed.”
He continued, “Right now we have this beacon of, ‘We’ll leave the light on for you and let you come illegally into the country.’ If you’ve seen some of the stuff we’ve seen, you’d understand how important it is to have a tough stance to divert people from coming here.”
Cabrera then bluntly told Baldwin some of the horrors he has seen.
“When you see a 12-year-old girl with a plan B pill, her parents put her on birth control because they know getting violated is part of the journey, that’s a terrible way to live. When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling alone with just her parents phone number written across her shirt. We had a 9-year-old boy have heat stroke in front of us and die with no family around. That’s because we’re allowing people to take advantage of this system.”
The retelling of the child horror stories elicited an audible gasp from Baldwin.
Cabrera went on to say that it’s up to Congress to change the law, but until then his agents will continue to enforce the laws on the books.
“Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in.” Cabrera said. “Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”
Excellent comments from Chris Cabrera. He is the kind of individual that we need in law enforcement! This policy is not one implemented under Trump, it was passed by Congress under the Clinton Administration and has been utilized since.
But, it disturbs me the most that liberals didn’t care about this matter under Obama. Because even tho he deported more than any other president, nobody cared until Trump vowed to do something about immigration. Then it was all hands on deck. Hypocrisy is mind-numbing.
It is well-known that the Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers.
And now, they blame federal laws, for separating mothers and children. Okay. Who brought those children across the border illegally in the first place?
