U.S. Border Patrol Swanton Sector“We are seeing more and more people, and it can be a deadly terrain if you’re not familiar with it," Favro said. “The only way to really be able to cover and protect [the northern border] is boots on the ground,” Favro said. Unlike the southern border, where over 16,000 Border Patrol agents are responsible for staffing roughly 2,000 miles, about 2,000 border agents patrol the 5,000-mile border between the U.S. and Canada, which includes Alaska’s land boundaries, making it the longest international land border in the world. “Over the last few months, the State of New Hampshire has attempted to assist the federal government in securing our northern border. The Biden administration has cut funding and hindered the state’s ability to assist in patrolling the northern border,” Sununu said.
