Border Patrol Museum in El Paso Attacked by Protesters; Memorial to Fallen Agents Vandalized

There is an unconfirmed report from El Paso, Texas, that the National Border Patrol Museum was attacked by protesters on Saturday. A poster on Twitter, whose report about the attack was retweeted by a Texas Border Patrol union account, stated the protesters attacked every exhibit at the museum including the Memorial Room dedicated to agents who gave their lives in the line of duty. The poster, Gloria Ham, appears to be current or former Border Patrol by her use of the word “our” to describe the attack. Ham’s account states she is in El Paso. In some tweets she states she is a federal employee. Ham copied President Trump, his son Don, Jr., and Dan Bongino on her tweets.

“Today a group of protesters invaded the Border Patrol Museum and defaced all of the exhibits honoring our history including our sacred Memorial Room. These patriots died in the line of duty. Efforts to prosecute them will be pursued.”

“Today a group of protesters invaded the Border Patrol Museum and defaced all of the exhibits honoring our history including our sacred Memorial Room. These patriots died in the line of duty. Disgrace to decency.”

The Border Patrol union account, Border Patrol RGVTX @rgv3307, posted in reply to Ham, “Our Agency’s history and legacy is shared through those doors, and the memories of our fallen Agents are told through the BP Museum’s Memorial Room.”

The museum has not reported the attack on its website, nor has any mention been made on its Twitter or Facebook accounts. The last Facebook post was early Saturday morning.

A call to the El Paso police PIO Saturday night was not returned as of publication of this article. Nor was a request for comment from Gloria Ham replied to.

UPDATE: Another El Paso based account states the attackers were with Occupy Tornillo, a radical open borders group holding a long weekend of protests in El Paso from the 14th through the 18th.

Excerpt:

“While the group has called for disruptive Nonviolent Direct Actions at detention centers, and ICE field offices, across the nation, in solidarity with the Weekend of Revolutionary Love, Tornillo: The Occupation will focus its weekend efforts on the Tornillo/El Paso area.

“The El Paso region is ground zero for a corrupt and broke immigration system, there are many detention centers that are operating with impunity and are largely unnoticed. This weekend aims to continue the spread of a culture of resistance in El Paso, and across the nation.” Elizabeth Vega, organizer Tornillo: The Occupation.”
