Can you confirm this information? Post is going viral? VERY IMPORTANT - it has come to my attention that effective today until further notice Border Patrol is not securing the border all the way from the valley to Sanderson. That’s right OPEN border. Word is out and crossings are obviously going to be even larger than before. Protect yourself and your families. I would not print something like this had I not heard it from reliable sources. This should have every citizen on the border outraged even the ones that VOTED for this. This is dangerous don’t take any chances. Washington is turning a blind eye to the Biden Border Crisis and it continues to get worse. God speed.
Thank You for Your Service. God Bless You 🙏🏻☝🏻

This is ridiculous to put all this work on these border patrol agents because there's no reason why these kids are staying in the these facilities they need to be sent back we are in a pandemic number one number two why should we have to pay for them to say and this facility with our hard-earned tax dollars and most of all what bothers me the most is that they think it's okay just to come to the border and like they're going to get in what about these children why should a and why is as Biden doing this they need to stay and kids are just been sending kids we have to pay they need to make it where they have funds to come to this country
