Border Patrol Agents performed 1,335 search and rescue efforts last month in January. That's a 14% increase from the same time frame in January 2022. Agents continue to risk their lives to save others who have chosen to enter the United States illegally.

We thank you for your selfless acts of heroism.

$4,000,000 worth of Fentanyl Seized in San Diego Sector!That's enough Fentanyl to kill over 30 million people!

Illicit synthetic opioids are extremely dangerous, and keeping these dangerous drugs from reaching our communities is a top priority! January, we saw a 300% increase in Fentanyl seizures compared to a year ago.

Great work Campo Station!

Monday, two Yuma Air Branch AS350 crews responded to reports of a shooting at a nearby high school in Yuma, Arizona. The aircrews partnered with U.S. Border Patrol Agents to search the area. An aircrew identified footprints in an open, undeveloped area south of the high school. Border Patrol Agents responded, confirmed the footprints were fresh and began tracking. Agents and officers closed in on the surrounding area, located and arrested the suspected shooter.
Outstanding work by everyone involved!

1 station, 3 days, 14 groups, 155 apprehensions, and zero gotaways using state-of-the-art technology from the eye in the sky!

Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems are vital to our success and give us the tactical advantage by monitoring groups from a distance and allowing our agents to respond quicker, safer, and more effectively to illegal border crossings.

Great work by Eagle Pass Agents at US Border Patrol Del Rio Sector!

Heroic effort by a Detroit Sector Border Patrol Agent and first responders!

Yesterday a Sandusky Bay Station Agent worked with local first responders to free a driver from an overturned semi. Despite a diesel spill and a sparking battery from the truck, the agent jumped into the vehicle and immediately provided medical care until local EMS arrived. The driver was removed from the car through the windshield and transported to a trauma center.

Incredible actions and collaboration by all the local organizations!

Yesterday, Border Patrol Agents from the Mobile Border Patrol Station along with their partners with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office successfully thwarted a drug smuggling attempt. Agents and Officers seized roughly 33 and a half pounds of co***ne (a street value of $457,000) that was found concealed in the back of a pickup truck. The driver of the truck, a convicted felon, was also in possession of a firearm. Honor First!

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:
