ZAPATA - A dozen Border Patrol boats, including some from the Valley are now in Zapata. They will be used to patrol and protect Falcon Lake.
The increase comes after the disappearance and presumed murder of David Hartley.
Both the Mexican and American governments are still searching for his body.
People who live along Falcon Lake say the increased security helps. Still, they'd like to see even more.
"I think they can do a lot better and bring more troops so that we can have the homeland security. We need more law enforcement around the border," says Leo Cuellar.
No word on how long the boats will stay in Zapata. A Border Patrol spokesperson declined to comment saying details of their role at Falcon Lake must remain top secret.
What will they be allowed to do once they are there?
Will there be agents on these boats?
The worm slowly turns?.....
Border Patrol? The same people who are ordered not to use deadly force in self-defense, and then are prosecuted when they do? That Border Patrol?
And luv’n every minute of it.
The Border Patrol is the most PC-incorrect federal agency we have. They are not cowed and they don't care for politics or PC. The live and work in the desert SW and doing the job they do, they don't have time for hurt feelings or PC nonsense.
Has anyone looked into “Tiffany’s” insurance policy?
And yes, Border Patrol boats are crewed by full-up Border Patrol Agents.
PC attny’s do the prosecuting. The Border Patrol Agents have no love or time for politico's or attny’s.
Although they have the Head they still have not found the Body of the Mexican Police Official who was in charge of the investagation into the shooting of the American.
I guess the Illegal Alien lovers, the NAFTA supporters, and other assorted America haters have stopped blaming his signifigant other...and started taking this seriously.
Really disgusting how some in the media, and on FR, were attacking this guy’s woman....even though Mexico is a proven Third World craphole run by Drug Cartels
Obama probably daid you can put the boats in the water, but you cannot have any gasoline.....
The shoreline of CA is assaulted daily and there aren’t any patrol boats out there on a nightly basis. Very little effort to stop the smugglers. They wait until they hit the beach to go after them.
“were attacking this guys woman.”
WERE? We’ve got a prime example of “other assorted America haters” right here on this very thread.
At least two dozen 24/7 cameras are trained on various parts of the Texas border. None are trained on Lake Falcon!!!!Why not?
***Really disgusting how some in the media, and on FR, were attacking this guys woman....****
I’ll admit to questioning her story - because it was so unbelievable; having no experience or understanding of this lawless area. Now we know - US citizens are at the mercy of murdering drug cartels - with no Federal protection and no State protection allowed.
So much for Homeland Security !!!! Is it RED yet?
Finally. Now how about some heliocopter gunships?
We need to give the BP some PBRs and Swift boats, and maybe a monitor or two!
