Just file this under “Nice to Know.”
The president of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, testified before Congress yesterday. He said that border patrol agents are arresting an increasing number of people from Afghanistan and Pakistan at the border.
That’s nothing to worry about, though. What could go wrong with more people from those countries crossing our border illegally?
Judd also took issue with the Obama administration’s claim that “the border is more secure today than it’s ever been.”
“As a Border Patrol Agent, I will tell you the exact opposite,” he said.
There’s also this:
Judd pointed to statistics showing that in all of fiscal year 2015, Border Patrol arrested five people from Afghanistan, 57 from Pakistan and 1,327 from China.
But that number has surged this year, according to Judd.
“Already in the first five months of this fiscal year, the United States Border Patrol has arrested 18 from Afghanistan…79 from Pakistan and 619 from the Peoples Republic of China,” the union chief said.
Keep in mind: if you have a problem with that, you’re probably racist.
