To be a part of something that will leave such a legacy and make such an impact for generations to come is both gratifying and humbling.”
Media in Brownsville, Texas is reporting today that the number of people crossing America’s southern border illegally is on the rise to a point consistent with the surge two years ago.
Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. insisted this time, his agents are better prepared and border security isn’t in jeopardy. Others suggest that with the Obama Administration’s encouragement, more are coming, less are held and services to quickly relocate the invaders hide them until they can vote for Democrats.
