Tucson Border Patrol Agents Speak Out Against Mexitude
From the website of U.S. Border Patrol Local 2544 in Tucson (H/T MinutemanHQ Blog):
Reports to Mexican Government - This Local has nothing to do with any alleged management directives to report the location of the Minutemen volunteers to the Mexican government. Our position on the Mexican government and their military is very clear. They are corrupt, they shoot at us, they smuggle drugs, they encourage illegal aliens to invade this country by the millions, they are not to be trusted, and they should have ZERO input into the internal policies of the United States of America. We have received a lot of e-mail on this issue. Rank-and-file Border Patrol agents have been angry for years about the Mexican Consulate invading our work stations, demanding interviews with prisoners, and basically being given free reign to do whatever they want. It's been a standing joke for years that we should "check with the Mexican Consulate" to see if they approve before we do anything. Their influence on our politicians and upper managers is absolutely disgraceful.That pretty much says it all. Can you say Mexitude?
