Official: Border Agents Busy Checking Temperatures Of Burritos, Can’t Secure Border

On Wednesday, during a Senate Homeland Security Committee regarding the conditions on the southern border with Mexico, Sen. Ron Johson (R-WI) asked U.S. Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan about the influx of unaccompanied children crossing the border and the impact it’s having on U.S. security.

“Sir, I refer to the Border Patrol’s involvement with UACs and family units as one of humanitarian [nature] at this point,” Morgan told Johson.

Morgan went on to tell Sen. Johnson about interactions he has had with Border Patrol Agents saying of one encounter, “I just got from one sector where agents, one of their jobs during the day is to actually make sure that the food, the burritos that were provided, are being warmed properly. It takes a tremendous amount of resources to do this.”
