The confirmation of Chris Magnus as the Border Patrol boss was shocking to most conservatives.
We were sure his radical policies would have led to his disqualification, but the Senate approved him anyway.
The news was just as upsetting to our border agents, who are crushed regarding the news of their new boss.
The only Republican that voted for Magnus was Collins, but it was the lone vote Democrats needed to get him through.
If you watched any of his confirmation hearing, you saw how he was completely unable to call the situation at the border a crisis.
Border agents are already worried about the future of their department and the addition of Magnus is only contributing to their bad morale and stress.
One border agent told Fox News that Magnus “is pretty much hated, especially by those of us in the Tucson Sector since we know him.
“Somehow he has made a career off of hating law enforcement.
“He destroyed TPD [Tucson Police Department] and will do the same to CBP as a whole.
“Morale within Border Patrol is so low we expect absolutely nothing different than the elevation and appointments of people that are against a secure border.
“Magnus is just par for the course under this administration.”
Former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan added, “The confirmation of Chris Magnus completes the Biden Administration’s operational plan to destroy the most secure border we ever had under President Trump.
“The heroic men and women of the Border Patrol deserved better and the Democrats with help from Susan Collins showed their contempt for those that put their lives on the line to protect this great nation while we sleep.”
Agents already believed that Biden has started a war with their agency, and this appointment will do nothing to belay that feeling.
