I never advocated disarming border patrol agents, but keep beating that strawman.
The federal government values human life at around $8-9M. How many troops should we deploy, and at what cost, to ensure no agents die again? $100M/yr? Moreover, there have been only 31 shooting deaths since 1924. It's hardly an epidemic.
