David joins the show to discuss border safety and illegal immigration; some of our topics include the daily life of a border patrol agent and the violence, how items and people come across the border, why people are illegally crossing the border, Syrian Refugees and so much more. He also gives solutions on how to make the borders safer, whether to build a wall or not, how we can discourage illegal immigration and policy reform solutions. David gives a very interesting perspective into the world of border security that most people never have the opportunity to explore. On top of all of that, former agent Ward is also an expert in human tracking and shares some of his secrets of tracking down people along the border.
