CNN host Brooke Baldwin tried to humiliate a Border Patrol agent when she had him on her show on Tuesday, but it didn’t end well for her.
Mad World News reported that Baldwin brought on Chris Cabrera, a spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council, and immediately tried to grill him on the Donald Trump administration’s zero tolerance when enforcing America’s border laws. However, Cabrera quickly flipped the script on Baldwin and humiliated her on her own show.
“There’s so much being thrown at people who don’t know as much about immigration certainly as you do as a border patrol agent, but there are a couple of ways to come into this country if you’re an undocumented immigrant and you come out on the Rio Grande river, that’s illegal,” Baldwin started.
“Even if you’re a U.S. citizen, it’s illegal,” he fired back.
The CNN host then tried to about the delays for asylum seekers, but Cabrera was not having any of it.
“We’ve had this situation going on for four years now,” he said bluntly. “I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or another. It started under one and is continuing under another. It hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed.”
“Right now we have this beacon of, ‘We’ll leave the light on for you and let you come illegally into the country,’” he continued. “If you’ve seen some of the stuff we’ve seen, you’d understand how important it is to have a tough stance to divert people from coming here.”
Cabrera then silenced Baldwin by recounting the horrors he has seen.
“When you see a 12-year-old girl with a plan B pill, her parents put her on birth control because they know getting violated is part of the journey, that’s a terrible way to live,” he said. “When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling alone with just her parents’ phone number written across her shirt. We had a 9-year-old boy have heatstroke in front of us and die with no family around. That’s because we’re allowing people to take advantage of this system.”
Baldwin could not help but gasp when she heard this.
“Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in,” Cabrera said. “Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”
We’re glad to see that Cabrera was not allowed to let Baldwin get the best of him!
