What if I were to tell you that a Border Patrol agent confirmed that it was not the BP's job to do so?
You'd say I was nuts, right? Well, you'd be dead wrong.
Border Patrol agents dont have the responsibility of apprehending illegal immigrants, Carlos X. Carrillo, chief patrol agent for the Laredo sector, said at a town hall meeting Wednesday."The Border Patrol is not equipped to stop illegal immigrants," Carrillo said, noting that illegal narcotics are also not on the agents priority list.
"The Border Patrol mission is not to do any of those things," he emphasized.
The Border Patrols mission is to keep the country safe from terrorist and terrorist weapons, he said. Carrillo added that when and if terrorists come into the country, the agents will be ready.
After the support the BP showed Ramos and Compean ... I bet you didn't expect that.
Funny thing is that the BP's mission statement disagrees with this guy.
