Two brothers who worked as Border Patrol agents were scheduled to be sentenced Friday for smuggling hundreds of immigrants into the United States in one of the highest-profile corruption cases to sting the federal agency in a decade.
Raul and Fidel Villarreal face a maximum of 50 years in prison and at least $1.25 million in penalties when they appear before U.S. District Court Judge John A. Houston in San Diego…
The Border Patrol has suffered a string of such embarrassments [What race are the perps of said ‘string’? — LM] since doubling its size in less than a decade, including the case of an agent who pleaded guilty in April to smuggling marijuana while on duty along the Arizona-Mexico border.
Raul earned $82,859 as an agent in 2005, while Fidel made $77,803.
Loyalty to one’s tribe is much thicker than to the tribe-less, confused, muliticultural Estados Unidos, who took a bunch of Mexico’s turf in the 1800s. (That’s the one piece of hisory they all learn in school.)
Just wait until the Schumer-Rubio doubles the number of Border Agents.
20,000 more Mexicanos (and Democratic voters) getting government jobs with nice pensions?
Si! Se puede!
From an unrelated story:
Sources close to the Obama administration say the Border Patrol has struggled to meet its hiring goals in recent years — and that it will be a difficult task to add another 19,200 to the force’s ranks without including corrupt, incompetent or under-trained officers.
Actually, none of this would ever happen anyway. As with any of the border-enforcement provisions in the Rubio bill, it’s lip service. How much more proof do you need than this:
Just last week, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) criticized as misdirected a proposal by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) to add 5,000 Customs agents and 5,000 Border Patrol agents.
Now McCain is backing the 20,000 agent boost…
“There’s zero chance any of that is going to happen,” said one of the bill’s most strident critics, Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies. “They might as well say they’re going to hire a million Border Patrol agents or build a billion miles of fence with photon beams on top. It’s all totally phony.”
