Former Agent Speaks Out

Former Border Patrol Agent Jenn Budd speaks about her transformation from border agent to migrant rights activist in a new blog — I Used to Detain Migrants at The Border. Now I Help Them.

In her latest guest blog for the Southern Border Communities Coalition (SBCC), which Alliance San Diego leads, Jenn discusses her realization of the culture of violence and lack of accountability of the Border Patrol and how that led her to her current path. She calls for other Border Agents to lay down their badges and guns and do the same. Read Jenn’s blog here, and for more on Jenn Budd, check out SBCC’s “Breaking the Green Line” video series.
