When liberals and liberal media attacks President Donald Trump with ridiculous hyperbole and claim that he’s holding kids in “internment camps” or “concentration camps” they forget or don’t care that in the process they are also slandering a lot of good people trying to do their jobs under very challenging circumstances including the members of the Border Patrol.
And one Border Patrol agent is speaking out against the false media reports.
From Biz Pac Review:
Art Del Cueto, president of the U.S. Border Patrol Council chapter in Tucson, Arizona, delivered a scathing rebuke of the liberal media and the “disgusting” portrayal of agents as Nazis, among other attacks, during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday.
“It is sickening that certain members of the media have chosen to attack our president. It is sickening that certain members of the media have chosen to attack border patrol agents, and describe us as Nazis,” Del Cueto told host Laura Ingraham. “That is disgusting that you would even think that. I don’t know where that even comes from.”
Del Cueto said he and his fellow officers are far from the Nazis that the media is claiming them to be and that separating families has been happening long in advance of Trump.
Del Cueto noted that he and other officers often use their own money buying food, toys and clothes in an effort to help unaccompanied migrant children they encounter. He told Ingraham about a recent incident where a man tossed a child over a border fence with only a handwritten note asking for help to find his mother.
“To compare us to Nazis, that is just a whole new low,” Del Cueto said. “That is just the most disgusting thing. These people are idiots for that comparison, or they need to go back to school and actually learn history. They probably fell asleep during history class is what I think.”
Matt Schlapp, president of the American Conservative Union, pointed out how in 2014 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praise the Border Patrol after her visit to a temporary shelter.
“All President Trump was doing was following the law,” according to Schlapp. “This is very important for people to understand. He was following the law that President Obama had to follow, that the courts had established with the executive branch since the 1990s.”
Del Cueto pointed out how ironic that it was that media would be so willing to slander the Border Patrol while ignoring that it’s the parents who entered illegally who were putting the kids at risk, not the Border Patrol.
Del Cueto said they’re such great parents that “they’re giving their child to criminal organizations so they can put them in a trunk of a vehicle, and cross through the desert or travel through very dangerous areas.”
“The picture that you’re seeing from a lot of these media outlets are from the last administration,” he said. “You can spin it any way you want, but the reality is, I’m out there all the time, I work that border. And I’m telling you right now, things are being done correctly and there’s a lot of people out there in the media that are twisting things around.”
So media, where is your coverage of what Art Del Cueto is saying?
