Hector Garza, a U.S. Border Patrol agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council, appeared on Fox News Channel and released some pretty terrifying information. While on air to discuss border security and the need for the U.S. to build the wall, Garza told Fox News Channel that eight out of ten illegal immigrants who are captured at the border are initially set free into the United States.
“Eight out of ten people that are caught entering our country illegally are not deported and are allowed to stay in the United States,” Garza explained. “Unfortunately for Border Patrol agents, we are trying to do our jobs as best we can with the very limited resources that we have.”
Garza expressed his frustration at the lack of resources the U.S. government provides border patrol agents with.
“We do not have enough vehicles for our agents to patrol with, we do not get the manpower that we need.”
