Headline The National BBorder Patrol union under fire for 'racist' tweet listing 'burrito wrapping' as part of new job description after photos revealed sub-human conditions in which immigrant children are kept
The National Border Patrol Council - the union that represents the U.S.' Border Patrol agents - is under fire after posting some controversial messages on Twitter on Saturday that critics say mocked the more than 50,000 immigrant children who have been caught crossing the border without parents since early October. The sub-human conditions in which many of these children have been kept while in Border Patrol custody was revealed earlier this month in a collection of photos released by Democratic Texas Congressman Congressman Henry Cuellar to shine a light on what the White House later described as an 'urgent humanitarian situation. In one of the controversial 'tweets,' the agency describes low morale, and that 'New annual job rating areas: Babysitting, Diaper Changing, Burrito Wrapping, Cleaning Cells.'
After the comment was criticized as being racist, the union 'tweeted' 'What is racist? Those are the duties agents are being assigned.' After the uproar over the 'tweets,' the union's president, Shawn Moran, appeared on Fox News to explain how many border agents feel as though they are just the 'hired help.' 'There's a reason that we are ranked at the bottom of the federal workforce in morale,' Moran said. 'And it's because our agents are treated like grade-schoolers, not allowed to make decisions on our own, micromanaged. We live in some godforsaken towns on the Southwest border and just don't have the type of morale that we need to effectively do this job.'

what a load of macaca!!
I want to see the photos too!
We can have compassionate wars?
We need compassionate Border Monitors too.
They want the border patrol to babysit, accompany illegal aliens to a safe shelter, help find them food and by damn love it!
Trebouchet all the way!
Thank GOD someone can tell the difference between a trebouchet and a catapult.
Replace the Feds at the Southern US Border with armed STATE National Guard Troops, and miles and miles of Concertina Wire, Mortars firing tear gas and flash-bang canisters as far into Mexico as possible.
It's time to tell the PC bullies to STFU.
And make it stick.
‘We covered that in the second week of culinary school.
LOL. I think my first wife attended that school.
Feed these kids the same slop Michelle is forcing on our school children and they’ll self-deport. They already have the audacity to complain because they’re being fed the wring kind of tortillas.
Is burrito wrapping anything like burro rapping?
Like Balaam’s ass?
Or like camel whipping (mooslimb S&M)?
DAMN good idea
And she can exercise some off her phatazz by standing there offering them
Dallas Texas 2006:
500,000 illegals and their supporters march on Dallas Texas making demands and threats while pushing foreign flags in your faces...
During Bush's term...
So emboldened by Bush and his loving friendship with a country who's population is totally disrespects our laws and rules...
Never in the history of America was seen such a massive display of lawlessness...All during war time yet, while Bush aided and abetted this epic lawless invasion, tens of millions poured in unabated...
Those Americans who'd had enough of these country killing policies volunteered to protect our borders, only to have Bush discredit them while calling them "vigilantes".
During that term, Bush celebrated Cinco De Mayo up in the White House.
