Alligators in the Moat
Written by: Ed Ashurst
"It starts at the top: The U.S. Border Patrol and ICE receive most criticism for the United States' failed policy concerning illegal activity on our border with Mexico. The truth is the situation on the border is exactly what most politicians are comfortable with. Meanwhile patriotic federal agents who work on the ground as well as as U.S. citizens who live in rural areas close to the border are thrown under the bus, and anyone who criticizes the policy coming out of Washington D.C. is threatened, slandered, or even worse. The Border Patrol agents are only following orders and U.S. citizens are only trying to protect themselves. This is a tale of corruption, lies, cover-up and murder." Foreward
