A call for help

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

Having come to the USA, the legal way, this administration is an insult to all of us and to all US Citizens and tax payers!
Sounds like it's catch and release in the Rio Grande Valley again. This is madness!
Never depend on a single income to get financial freedom. I can teach you how you can earn from $5,000 to $6,000 weekly,without sending money to me or anyone.If you are interested. Ask Me How or message me directly on WhatsApp +12136300298
Border Patrol... you all need to watch the entrance door in the intersection of South Shary Rd and South Conway in Granjeno. Right next to the Yunkyard Bar, better known as Cabrera's Bar, there is extremely high activity in that entrance.
