Looking for Viet Nam buddy bien hoa AB 1969. Enrique Aquilar. The last word to me was he was with border Patrol in el Paso area. Let him know Tom Driscoll looking for him [email protected].
We saw all your officers working so hard at the Texas-Mexico border recently while our team was reporting for NTD's Life & Times program. We appreciate your service and hope you think we did justice to your work in the story we made on our visit there. Stay strong.
Border Patrol should create a CHALLENGE of how you would cross into the United States or detain migrants
I am sorry to say this but why is the Border Patrol assisting the illegal aliens into this country. I can't understand how or why this is. These people are obviously breaking the laws and ruining our country and making it dangerous. The Border Patrol is supposed to control the border and stop the invasion. Please DO YOUR JOB!!!!!
Why isn't the Border Patrol speaking up on what is going on in McAllen Texas?
Have you promoted this thug yet? Or are you waiting until he gets someone killed?
THANK YOU. I'm happy administrators are speaking out. You are overrun, through no fault of your own. I support you 100%
Dear US Border Patrol - I just published this story on the border wall in Organ Pipe National Monument. Hoping for your backing on my position:
Border Patrol gone from Highway 90 checkpoint. We miss you all!
Shout out to Brackettville Tx Border Patrol Agents Thank Y’all For All Yalls Hard Work
