NOT GOOD: Customs and Border Patrol Chief: 50% of Border Patrol’s Time Not Spent on Border Security

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol acting commissioner John Sanders said during a press conference Wednesday that border patrol officers spend half their time taking care of migrants and children – not securing the border.
Sanders spoke with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) during a press conference Wednesday, in which Graham introduced legislation that would curb migrants’ ability to claim asylum in the United States and exhaust the border patrol’s ability to secure the southern border.
The acting chief of the CBP said that most of CBP patrol officers spend their time tending to the asylum seekers and migrants compared to apprehending illegals who cross the border.
“Over 50 percent of the time [of] the border patrol agents is not spent on border security, so it is absolutely a risk to national security, and I do want to get those boots back to the border so they can do what they signed up to do,” Sanders said.
Sanders then said that the media and Democrat politicians need to stop “demonizing” border patrol agents, who have spent significant time aiding migrants and asylum seekers.
