(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Is the unrelenting illegal alien invasion of the United States causing some Border Patrol agents to commit suicide?
That’s the question being asked after three agents took their own lives in the span of three weeks.
As the New York Post notes in “Three Border Patrol agents die by suicide in three weeks“:
“The unprecedented crisis at the southern border appears to be taking a toll on rank-and-file Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers — with three agents taking their lives in November.
“This brings the 2022 total suicides within the agency to 14, more than any year in over a decade, sources told The Post.
“‘It’s a very serious epidemic that’s happening within the agency,’ said US Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-Texas), whose congressional district runs along the US-Mexico border from Del Rio to El Paso.” [emphasis added]
And Gonzales believes he may know what is leading to the increase in suicides.
“While there’s no single reason attributed for the spike in agent suicides, Gonzales feels the ongoing migrant crisis — with more than 2 million people crossing the border in the last year, hundreds of immigrant deaths, children arriving alone at border crossings, long work hours and dealing with high-stress situations — is taking its toll.” [emphasis added]
What is your opinion? Do you agree with the congressman that “the ongoing migrant crisis” may be taking a toll on Border Patrol agents and leading some to take their own lives?
