It's only a few seconds of video, but it illustrates the frustration of many Americans over the crisis at the southern border.

On Fox and Friends this morning, we heard from the truck driver who captured footage of an exasperated U.S. Border Patrol agent.

As Travis Pope passed through a checkpoint on I-10 in Sierra Blanca, Texas, he was asked how many people were in his vehicle and whether he's a U.S. citizen.

To the second question, Pope answered, "Yeah, but does it really matter?"

Amazingly, the Border Patrol agent responded, "Not anymore, unfortunately. Thank you."

Pope said he usually puts on glasses equipped with a camera in case he is stopped for any reason at checkpoints. Frequently driving through southern border states, Pope explained that he usually asks that question to the guards he encounters and gets that response often.

"He's an American. All of them down there are just as frustrated as all of us. ... They're just all fed up that they can't do their job," said Pope, adding the country has a "government problem" because the laws are not being enforced.

Pope believes Border Patrol agents like the one he filmed want to protect the border, but "can't do nothing" because of the policies of the Obama administration.

Obama will destroy this country one way or another. Satan in disguise.
