U.S. Border Patrol agents overwhelmingly support a "wall system" along the border with Mexico, according to a new survey from the National Border Patrol Council.
According to the poll, which was shared with The Washington Times, the vast majority of agents support a "wall system in strategic locations."
89 percent think a wall system is necessary;
7 percent disagree.
95 percent blame the government's failure to hold illegal immigrants awaiting deportation for illegal border crossings.
This poll contradicts the results of a report from Democrats on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, which stated that agents would prefer additional personnel and technology instead of additional fencing on the border.
