Title: TY

Congratulations and Thank you to ALL border patrol agents. I appreciate your
efforts in keeping out the scam, especially the ones that harm the children.

Title: Good work

Congrats, border patrol on the minor amount of drug seizure but better off
apprehend the criminal element that have records of being sick individuals
who have done harm to children. Pedophiles should all be sterilized and
imprisoned for the rest of their natural days left in their disgusting lives!
Don’t send back into Mexico, prosecute them here as being unregistered sexual
predators and lose the key to those jaildoors forever!
