Today’s highly interesting read (09/16/19): ‘People Actively Hate Us’: Inside the Border Patrol’s Morale Crisis

The NY Times dispatched seven (7)  reporters to bang out what is essentially a hit piece, a smear job on US border patrol agents.

The job has taken a psychological toll on men and women alike.

From 2007 to 2018, more than 100 Customs and Border Protection employees, many of whom had worked as Border Patrol agents, killed themselves. Ross Davidson, who retired in 2017 after 21 years with the agency, said he was certain that stress from the job has been a factor.

“The repetitive monotony of doing the same thing over and over and seeing no outcome, seeing no end to it and nothing changing,” he said. “It’s just going deeper and deeper, and getting worse and worse.”

I understand it’s not exactly a Hilton Hotel atmosphere down there. And agents aren’t perfect. But apparently the gang of Times reporters could find little if anything positive to write about them.

Compare that to this op-ed in the Washington Times last week.
