Border Patrol Agents Threatened with Criminal Charges for Speaking to Reporters

Posted on June 14, 2014   by a12iggymom    

HOUSTON, Texas—A surge of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has left federal resources and facilities overwhelmed. Most of the new migrants are children from Central America. In the aftermath of Breitbart Texas releasing photos showing minors warehoused in crowded U.S. cells, Border Patrol agents in Texas have been instructed not to speak to media outlets.

The Associated Press (AP) obtained an email from Eligio “Lee” Pena, an assistant patrol agent, that ordered more than 3,000 agents to not speak to reporters about the “humanitarian crisis.” The email allegedly said that reporters are likely to press for details and “may try to disguise themselves” in the process.”

Pena’s email went on to warn agents that they could be disciplined or even charged with a crime if they speak to media, according to the AP.

Since the news of the spike in foreign minors, Border Patrol contacts–many of whom used to speak on the record regularly–have not returned numerous phone calls or emails from Breitbart Texas.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
