US Border Patrol Says It's Woefully Understaffed, "Excited" to Have Help from National Guard

From Jazz Shaw, another case of the left, the media, and the NeverTrump Open Borders League being against any and all border/immigration measures that actually stand a chance of being helpful.

Federal agents on the front lines of the U.S.-Mexico border are "excited" about the forthcoming deployment of the National Guard to assist them in their mission, according to the employees' union, with officials noting that the extra personnel will help offset their being "woefully understaffed."

The guardsmen will serve in support and administrative positions, said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, freeing up Border Patrol agents to go directly to the front lines. The National Guard can fill roles in a control room watching surveillance cameras, monitoring sensors, in skyboxes or scope trucks, Judd said, noting ideas that he has passed up the chain of command at Customs and Border Protection and drawing from his experiences during previous deployments.

"It frees up our resources and allows us to put more agents at the border instead of in support," said Judd, who has served as a Border Patrol agent for 20 years. "The National Guard is going to be a huge boon especially considering how understaffed we are."
