Dear Border Patrol Agents: Don’t listen to the left. We support and appreciate you.



Dear Border Patrol Agents Dont listen to the left We support and appreciate you

Law enforcement officers and military personnel have gone from heroes in the eyes of a vast majority of Americans to being viewed as the “bad guys” by a large portion of the population, most notably those on the far left. In recent decades, those who protect us from threats at home and abroad have had sentiment towards them shift. As part of recruiting or indoctrinating progressives, the left often instills negative feelings towards these brave men and women as a way of reversing the script, turning culprits into victims.

As Isaiah noted, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Today, border patrol agents are scrutinized, vilified, and attacked by Democrats and leftist journalists trying to score points with a growing number of open-borders-loving socialists. They accuse border patrol of being evil for defending our sovereignty and protecting American citizens. It’s no wonder morale is low among those who put their lives in danger on our behalf.

Rep. Biggs says Border Patrol morale taking hit as Congress continually ‘castigates’ agents

Some lawmakers’ continued criticism of the Border Patrol and its activities is taking a toll on agents’ morale, according to Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.

There are likely some problematic agents in the force, but the large majority do their jobs efficiently and compassionately, Biggs told Neil Cavuto on “Your World.”

“They’re working hard,” he said.

“I think they’re being unfairly castigated by the other side.

“You’ve got almost 17,000 agents and working personnel in the border patrol. Quite frankly, I’d be surprised if you didn’t have a few bad eggs in that large of a number.”

Biggs is correct. There are “bad eggs” among border patrol agents. There are bad eggs among every sufficiently large group of people. That’s the state of the human condition; we are inherently bad, and while societal norms, adherence to moral personal philosophies, and religious teachings give us the ability to fight our selfish and evil nature, we all succumb to it to some extent. Some succumb to it more than others, which is why the bad eggs are always present when enough humans are involved.

That fact does not mean we abandon entire institutions, as Ilhan Omar or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want. We should always strive for better. But border patrol isn’t among the groups that desperately need to improve morally. They have several missions as part of their accepted responsibilities, and the vast majority of them perform these missions despite the blowback they’ve been getting recently.

It’s important that we remember this. As patriots, we must fight the extreme negative feedback flung on border patrol agents daily. They must know that we appreciate and support their efforts, that we often wish we could help them more, and that we do not believe the lies spread by leftists bent on the demise of their very profession. America needs our border patrol agents just as we need our police. Just as we need our military defenders. These men and women put their lives on the line to make sure we can sleep in our cozy beds at night without fear.

The next time you see a border patrol agent, commend them. Show them your appreciation and tell them they are heroes because they are. We need them to know the lies and accusations do not put a dent on the truth.
