The latest migrant encounter and arrest figures from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) not only mark a new record, but also prove that there isn’t just a problem at the southern border, but a serious crisis.
However, rather than hiring more Border Patrol agents to help at the border, Democrats are instead focused on hiring more IRS agents, an agency where the current number of agents already surpasses the number of CBP agents by 59,125.
“Democrats would rather audit Americans than secure the border. When they passed their reckless spending bill, they voted against hiring more border patrol agents. Instead, they spent $46 billion to hire 87,000 IRS agents,” Senate Republicans said on Twitter.
