This is unbelievable!
JANET NAPOLITANO STRIKES AGAIN!
The Department of Homeland Security told border patrol agents they can not wear face masks to work for protection.
DHS Secretary Janet Napalitano is worried about the political aspects of how it may look to the general public!
Washington says the idea of seeing agents wear masks may spread more concern.
If the agents ignore the command they could be penalized:

From the video:
Janet Napolitano strikes again! Time to call for her resignation. Our Border patrol agents are NOT permitted to protect their health because DHS doesn’t like how it looks to the public and does not want commerce to be effected at the risk of American lives.
“We are now calling for Janet Napolitano’s immediate resignation!” William Gheen, President of ALIPAC.
Agents want to wear the N-95 respirator masks.
