Border Patrol Changing Diapers, Heating Baby Formula For Surge Of Children

Gil Kerlikowske, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said Friday that many of the illegal immigrant children his agents are encountering trying to slip across the U.S.-Mexico border have never even seen a doctor before.

He described scenes of Border Patrol agents changing diapers and heating baby formula in order to care for some of the youngest children, and said agents are being asked to do things way beyond their skill set — particularly for so many of the agents who are young, single men.

“I’ve been down there, a lot, and spent a lot of time and I’ve seen these agents doing incredible things,” he said.

The commissioner was pushing back against a complaint filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and several immigrant-rights groups this week charging that agents and officers have been neglecting or abusing many of the children, verbally or physically.

All of the Border Patrol agent should call in sick let the White House baby sit them.

This pisses me off. You can blame this on Obama and your damn Democrats you voted for. This is nothing more that a Federal babysitting service for Illegal Mexicans at my/our expense.

This is nothing but an orchestrated display designed to pull at American heartstrings and perpetrated by our own government.

Wait, and see.

This is total B. S.

Just another way to stress an already overstressed economy. It is by design.

Why don't they just take them back to Mexico and say here their your people.

Most of them are not Mexican. They are just using the border to cross into the USA. If they were from Mexico we can just send them back but some of the other countries we just can't take them back and drop them off.

406, so that makes them Americans? Send them back to Mexico and let Mexico find their countries of origin. It's not our job.
