I wanted to say after just skimming through posts here in regards to the Border Patrol it is very heartening to read that alot of people support what our agents are doing. My husband has been an agent for 20 yrs and they tend to get alot of flack for doing their jobs. So thanks for the support. It is a dangerous life they lead and as a wife you worry from the time they leave the house at the start of a shift until they walk back in the door. It seems to have gotten more dangerous as the years have gone on. Not any different I know from any military wife or other law enforcement wife.

Our Border Patrol agents have a very difficult job under extremely dangerous circumstances. When you add in the fact that our government does its best to stymie their efforts to enforce our immigration laws, I'm surprised that they all don't simply walk away in protest.

I for one, am grateful to those brave men and women who put their lives on the line for the sovereignty of this nation, and I know that I speak for the majority of the posters to this particular forum.

Thank you and God Bless your husband for the work that he does and for putting his life on the line to protect our country. Please know that there are many here and around America who realize all the crap he has to deal with and the lack of support he may receive from some. However, please let him know that there are many here who support him and his coworkers 100% and truly appreciate all that he does.
