Good dog...

Did you know that detection K9s are work for their "reward"? This lucky dog is about to get paid after successfully finding several subjects attempted to evade arrest.

The K9s associate odors with their reward toy and the handlers produce the reward when the K9 does a good job.

Think you could be a Border Patrol K9 handler?

We mourn the loss of our fallen brother Border Patrol Agent Freddy Ortiz, who passed away after an ATV accident while on-duty.

BPA Ortiz is remembered for often being the first to respond to traffic and the last to return from the field at the end of each shift.

He was admired by his peers and coworkers for the passion he exuded. He was highly committed to his health and fitness and dedicated to his military service and homeland security efforts.

He entered on duty in 2010 and was assigned to the Tucson Sector, Douglas Station.

Some things never change...

Even in the early days of the Border Patrol, smugglers attempted to use clever schemes to conceal their Illicit cargo. Today, however, criminal organizations are smuggling dangerous narcotics instead of whiskey.

No matter what m**hods smugglers try and use, Border Patrol agents will target and arrest criminals trying to sneak their poison into our country.

Multiple distressed people were pulled from the ocean yesterday when they attempted to enter the U.S. illegally by swimming around the border wall.

Our agents assisted other rescuers and helped save lives. Several people were taken to the hospital. Thankfully, no lives were lost.

Facts:
1. Crossing the border illegally is extremely dangerous.

2. No one saves more migrant lives than the Border Patrol.

Our message to migrants remains unchanged. Do not risk your life. Do not trust smugglers. Do not attempt to enter illegally.

BREAKING: Agents seize "ghost gun"

This afternoon, during a routine vehicle stop, San Diego agents discovered an unserialized AR-15 style rifle hidden in the trunk of a vehicle.

"Ghost guns" like this are commonly assembled by individuals who cannot legally own a firearm.

The Border Patrol is an all threats agency. We protect America from a variety of very real threats such as criminals who illegally possess weapons.

Gone, but never forgotten...

Border Patrol Agent Thomas Williams and Border Patrol Agent Jesus de la Ossa were killed when their vehicle was involved in a head-on collision on a rain-slicked road.

The two agents were returning to San Diego, where they were stationed, from the Academy in Artesia, New Mexico, when the crash occurred on Highway 82 in New Mexico. The driver of the other vehicle was also killed.

Agent Williams was a U.S. Navy veteran and had served with the United States Border Patrol for four years. He is survived by his wife and daughter.

At the time of his passing, Agent Williams' wife was pregnant with their daughter.

Today is the 25th anniversary of Agent Williams' passing.

You will never be forgotten.
