HERE ARE A COUPLE OF BORDER PATROL STORIES THAT THE MAJOR MEDIA WILL IGNORE BUT EVERYONE SHOULD HEAR ABOUT.
Home invaders target a Border Â Patrol Agent, gunfight eruptsÂ
The home of a Border Patrol agent was the site of a home-invasion robbery early Sunday, with the intruders fleeing after exchanging gunfire with the agent, Tucson police said. The South Side home was broken into at about 4:50 a.m. by four intruders, who forced their way inside and then fired shots, police said. The Border Patrol agent returned fire and the intruders fled, police said. Per Border Patrol policy, the agency is conducting an investigation into the agent's use of his weapon, police said. The criminal investigation is being conducted by the Tucson Police Department's aggravated-assault detectives. Because the Border Patrol agent is a law enforcement officer, TPD is not releasing any more information on the house other than to say it is south of 22nd Street, said Officer Dallas Wilson, a Police Department spokesman. "We don't even narrow it down to the 100 block," Wilson said. "It's an officer-safety issue." Â Â
Border Patrol Agents Rescue 20, South of Three Points, AZTucson, Ariz.
On the night of November 14, 2007, US Border Patrol and BORSTAR Agents rescued a group of 20 people from being stranded and possibly suffering from hypothermia south of Three Points, Ariz. The group had traveled more than 20 miles in the desert until the heavy rains of the weekend filled nearby washes with high running water that produced strong currents making it dangerous to cross. Border Patrol initially received a call from an unidentified caller reporting of two individuals near Elkhorn Ranch requesting help due to the possibility of suffering from hypothermia. The cooperative efforts of BORSTAR agents, CBP Air helicopters, and Tucson Station Border Patrol Agents led to successful location of the two individuals. Upon making contact with the individuals, agents were told of a group of Mexican Nationals stranded a few miles back due to the rapid currents of a wash. An immediate search of the surrounding area led to the successful location of the group. All 20 people in the group were determined to be citizens of Mexico, illegally in the United States and each requested a voluntary return to Mexico. Later, after being deemed fit for travel; the group was processed for removal proceedings to Mexico. From October 1, 2007 to November 30, 2007 the Tucson Sector Border Patrol has rescued 48 individuals.
