The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) has lost four workers due to recent suicides.
The disturbing concern is the focus of a new report regarding the consequences of lost morale among the nation's Border Patrol workers.

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has seen four personnel die by suicide in the last two weeks, National Border Patrol Council Vice President At-Large Sergio Moreno, who is part of the agency’s National Suicide Prevention Workforce, revealed," the Daily Caller reported.
"Three Border Patrol agents died by suicide in the two week period, the first two in the Rio Grande Valley sector, the third in the El Paso sector on Sunday and the fourth, a CBP officer, also on Sunday," the report added.
The report noted that the surge in suicides comes as CBP personnel experience low morale amid record illegal migration under the Biden administration.
The nation's southern border has seen more than five million migrants illegally enter since Biden has been in office.
That is larger than the population of several U.S. states, including South Carolina.
That’s the population of South Carolina!!!
This border crisis represents an existential threat to our Republic. https://t.co/vS0CFpEuMg

The trouble at the border is set to become much worse in December as Title 42 is scheduled to officially end. The policy allowed Border Patrol to turn away migrants based on health concerns related to Covid-19.
Some believe the border could have up to a half-million crossings per month after the policy ends, furthering the crisis for the nation and overwhelmed CBP staff.
The latest report of Border Patrol suicides is sad, serving as part of a larger problem created by the nation's current border policies.
