The National Border Patrol Council local representing San Diego Sector border patrol agents held a private screening Monday of the powerful movie, “Killing Free Speech.”
The film, which highlights the aggressive behavior on the left to silence free speech, features Border Patrol agents exposing the media lies and smears about the crisis at the southern border.
“‘Killing Free Speech‘ gave us a voice and an opportunity to speak the truth and it is a powerful testament to the men and women of the Border Patrol who risk their lives every day,” said Terence Shigg, National Border Patrol Council Local 1613 President.
The group cited a “biased” media as a motivating factor behind their involvement.
“The National Border Patrol Council Local 1613 got involved with this project because we are concerned that the current narrative being pushed by the majority of media outlets is biased and negative in regards to Border Patrol Agents,” the union said in a statement. “NBPC 1613 has worked tirelessly to get the truth out about what our agents do into the public forum but it is a daunting task when our message does not fit the agenda for most media outlets.”
A San Diego border patrol agent identified as Joshua detailed how his opinion was ignored in a PBS round table discussion on whether border walls work.
“The reality is that border patrol agents are saying; we want this wall, we need this wall, it will work,” he said. “I don’t think that [the mainstream media] want to accept the fact that a border wall will advance security because quite frankly, I don’t think they believe in border security.”
Shiggs said the local “wants the public to know the truth about what is going on at the border so that they can make informed decisions as to what is truly needed to secure the borders effectively, humanely and safely.”
Another screening of “Killing Free Speech” is reportedly being set up by the Texas Border Patrol.
