Rank-and-file Border Patrol agents have slammed the Senate's $118B Senate funding bill that would guarantee 1.5 million illegal migrants entry to the United States, while sending the majority of funds to Ukraine ($60B+) and Israel ($14.1B), the Daily Caller reports.
Four rank-and-file Border Patrol agents told the DCNF that the “catch and release” of illegal immigrants will continue if the bill is implemented, because it allows for the release of family units and single adults that show a credible fear of persecution should they return home.
The Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024 would add more personnel to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with more beds for ICE facilities, the expulsion of certain illegal migrants, and enhancing fentanyl interdiction. But let's not get it twisted - as less than 20% of the bill would actually go towards the border.
They call it a “border bill,” yet less than 20% is allocated to our border & there’s more money allocated to protecting Ukraine’s border than our own. Typical swamp protocol. pic.twitter.com/sOAn6jx8sm— Vivek Ramaswamy (@VivekGRamaswamy) February 6, 2024
