Watch: Border Patrol Agent Calls for Hiring Babysitters to Watch Migrant Children
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd is calling for the hiring of “babysitters” to take care of migrant children after revealing that border agents have been forced to look after illegal immigrant minors while in custody.
Judd spoke with The Daily Caller and said, “I was just in the RGV [Rio Grande Valley]. I did a 30-day deployment to RGV and one of the assignments that we had was babysitting. Border patrol agents were babysitting children, and so do we need to hire people so that we can free up our law enforcement agents and officers to do their jobs. Absolutely, we need to do this.”
Judd explained that Border Patrol needed to hire support personnel to help with processing, detention and babysitting so that agents would be free to do their jobs.
“What we have to do is we have to hire support personnel that is going to come in and do the processing jobs, the detention jobs that border patrol agents are doing right now that pulls our resources out of the field that allows the cartels to generate all of the revenue and profits,” he said.
“We have to have our border patrol agents in the field and so to do that we have to hire the support personnel to take away these babysitting jobs or these processing jobs that our law enforcement agents are doing today.”
