Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan, who served in the Obama administration, was swift to debunk the “fake news” being spewed by the former president’s party. During an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on the Trump shutdown address, Morgan revealed that CBP agents routinely arrest “murderers, rapists, pedophiles, other violent offenders, and gang members” at the Mexican border. “That is not manufactured. That is real, and that’s a fact, and it’s still happening today…and I would say one last point is 127 Border Patrol agents have died. They didn’t die playing Monopoly. They died defending, being the frontline defenders of our borders, trying to apprehend 17,000 people, the bad people.” That’s a stark report from someone the Left would expect to follow the liberal line. Rest assured, though, that Pelosi, Schumer, and their ilk are leaning on the Left media’s portrayal of sob stories at the border, all while ignoring the criminals flooding into the U.S.

Obama’s former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan responded to President Donald Trump’s Wednesday speech on illegal immigration by noting that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents regularly apprehend “murderers, rapists, pedophiles, other violent offenders, and gang members.”
Morgan made the remarks while appearing on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with host Tucker Carlson immediately following Trump’s Oval Office address.
“Before I was even chief of Border Patrol, I served on the FBI for two decades,” he told Carlson. “One of my assignments was I led the El Paso office. From my office right on the border, I could see Juarez. Every day, Tucker, we worked the DEA and all components of DHS. And we worked human trafficking cases, we worked drug cases, and we worked drug and gang cases, all impacting the southern border.”
“And then as chief, every single day, Tucker, I was briefed every single day about the men and women who are risking their lives every day and they’re apprehending murderers, rapists, pedophiles, other violent offenders, and gang members,” Morgan continued.
