Pro-open borders protesters are known to be aggressive and very vocal but defacing a border patrol museum with pictures of fallen agents is as low as it gets.
El Paso, Texas was the sight of a protest last weekend that included dozens of open borders demonstrators standing inside and outside a Border Patrol museum yelling, “Say it loud, say it clear, Border Patrol kills!”.
The 50 protesters entered the museum, defaced it and refused to leave.

Visitors and employees were intimidated and harassed even though the museum is a nonprofit and apolitical.
Security cameras set up outside the private museum captured protesters pulling into the parking lot and putting on face masks before going inside around 2:15 p.m. local time.
A museum official, a 31-year veteran of the Border Patrol, said the museum is a nonprofit and apolitical. He also stated that the protesters were “really intimidating to our staff” and “they had a really aggresive attitude”.
Museum Director David Ham described the protest:
“They proceeded to set up a bunch of signs and just went all over the museum.
They of course had an agenda, they were chanting and singing songs, and then a couple of them got on a bullhorn,” Ham said. “We had visitors in the museum. They started talking and kind of harassing them. Of course the staff was asking them to leave, and they wouldn’t leave.”

Ham said his staff led non-protesting visitors to the back of the gift shop, so they could hide until police arrived on the scene.
This is war to these protesters.
