Furious Border Patrol Agents Respond to Senate Funding Deal: ‘They Can Go F*ck Themselves’

Border Patrol agents have criticized the Senate’s $118 billion funding bill, which promises entry to 1.5 illegal aliens into the United States while sending the majority of funds to Ukraine ($60B+) and Israel ($14.1B) as previously by Daily Caller.

According to four Border Patrol agents speaking to the DCNF, if the bill is enacted, the practice of “catch and release” for illegal aliens will continue. This is because the bill permits the release of family units and single adults who demonstrate a credible fear of persecution upon returning to their home countries.

The Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2024 aims to boost staffing at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), increase bed capacity at ICE facilities, expel certain illegal aliens, and enhance fentanyl interdiction However, it’s important to clarify that less than 20% of the bill’s provisions are designated for border-related initiatives.

“Now that I’ve seen more of it, they can respectfully go f*ck themselves. The more I’m seeing the more it just puts what they’ve been doing in writing. You want to shut this down, it’s really easy. Team up [the Department of Defense] with DHS and let us enforce like we were supposed to,” one agent told the Caller, adding “I feel like we are the only nation in the world that is this dumb about the border. Maybe it’s because we haven’t.”

“Catch and release is absolutely happening,” said Andrew “Art” Arthur, who serves as a resident fellow in law and policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, in a statement to the Caller.

In recent years, Border Patrol has recorded high levels of illegal immigration. Agents recorded more than 2.2 million encounters of migrants crossing the southern border illegally in fiscal year 2022, a new record, more than 2 million in fiscal year 2023 and more than 629,000 between October and January, according to federal data.

“It’s a load of bullshit,” a second agent told the DCNF. “We don’t need a border bill, we need to enforce the laws on the books.”

“Unaccompanied minors and families released, that’s unacceptable. They need to be removed,” the second agent added.

Two more agents told the caller that the bill is ‘bullsh*t’ for various reasons, including the release of families and certain single adults with ‘credible fear’ claims.

“Another loophole that aliens are going to abuse,” said a fourth agent.
