Border Patrol agents are being told to be lenient on illegal immigrants, says investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

"Whether spoken or unspoken, there is a policy coming from the top that they’re basically to be very lenient and try to let as many people go as possible, that’s what they think, that’s the message they think they're receiving," Attkisson said Thursday on Laura Ingraham's radio show.

Agents believe "they're being told not to do the job," said Attkisson, a former reporter for CBS News who now writes for The Daily Signal.

"I spoke to a member of Congress, if I understood him correctly, who said some of the court dates being given are 10 years out," Attkisson added.

Republicans have accused the Obama administration of purposely allowing Illegal immigrants across the Mexican border in an attempt to win more of the Hispanic vote for Democrats.

Democrats are facing a tough midterm election, with fears that a low turnout of their base could put the Senate in Republican control.
