Todd Starnes reports that “Brown Shirts” who have been hired by the federal government are actively silencing medical personnel who are dealing with the flood of illegal aliens on the Texas-Mexico border. Medical personnel are under threat of arrest if they talk, but some are talking anyway.

“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

Let’s unpack some of that.  The Baptist Family & Children’s Services has a branch in San Antonio, Texas, so the “Brown Shirts” are likely coming from that group. The government has contracted with BFCS’ Emergency Management Division. Here’s how they dress on duty, in this stock photo from the group’s website.


As for those brown shirts, the BFCS said they are “incident management team personnel” – who happen to wear tan shirts.

The San Antonio branch is hiring…



Their website confirms that they are working on the border crisis.


They are acting under the orders specified in their government contract with the Department of Health and Human Services — the Obamacare bunch. So, obviously, it’s ultimately the federal government that is silencing the doctors and nurses who are dealing with the illegal aliens. The Baptist “Brown Shirts” are just the means.
