A video that appeared on Facebook claims Border Patrol agents intentionally destroyed supplies that were left along the border to help migrants entering the U.S. Did that actually happen?

Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team says the video shows the agents kicking over five plastic jugs of water purportedly left for migrants. The video was originally posted on YouTube in early 2018 by NowThis Politics, and in it there’s text that reads, “Watch U.S. border agents vandalize supplies left for migrants.”
