Border Patrol Chief: Agents Are Being Diverted Away From Combatting Drug Cartels to Care for Kids and Families

Speaking in front of the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday on Capitol Hill, Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost explained how agents are being diverted from their mission of border security in order to care for thousands of unaccompanied children and families illegally crossing the southern border into the United States.

"Each day nearly 25 percent of my agents are diverted away from our border security mission to transport, care for and process family members and unaccompanied minors," Provost said. "As more migrants arrive with medical needs, agents are transporting and escorting an average of 55 people a day to medical facilities. We are committed to addressing this humanitarian need, but we know when agents are occupied narcotics smugglers, criminal aliens, gang members and others use the opportunity to violate our borders and our laws."

This week President Trump ordered an additional 1,000 U.S. National Guard troops to be stationed at the border. Like the already deployed 5,000 troops, they will back Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement in an administrative and logistical capacity.
