Kirsters Baish| Former Secret Service Agent turned political radio host Dan Bongino reported that “A letter written by a group of Border Patrol wives has gone viral after they invited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to tour the Texas-Mexico border and told her to ‘stop pretending’ that she cared about federal workers.”
Part of the letter reads:
“We the wives of the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol would like to cordially invite you to come visit McAllen, TX as president Trump did…We would like to show you around. You don’t need to bring any security detail. Our husbands/…significant others are actually very good at their jobs, thank goodness! We’d also appreciate if you’d stop pretending you care about federal workers. If you did, you would care for their safety, not just their paychecks. We can hold out a while longer if it means our husbands and communities are safer….You don’t even need to worry about those MS-13 gang members you’ll see running across the Border. Our guys and gals catch a lot of them. Like I said, they are good at their jobs!!”
Jill Demanski and Renea Perez, two of the Border Patrol wives, sat down with the hosts of Fox and Friends today in order to talk about the letter.
“I felt it’s really important to have our leaders come here and see what’s happening first. It’s important to meet with the people who are here on a daily basis, that are witnessing it – the effects of it, that it has on our country,” Demaski stated. “We want them to come here and make an informed decision and to see what’s really going on.”
Perez explained that she was a proponent for Trump’s coveted border wall. She explained to the hosts, “[A wall] will allow them to do their job more efficiently and give them more time – if they are by themselves – have another agent meet them. It is definitely needed. We just want them to come down there on the line and actually see where the argument is all about.”
