Texas Department of Public Safety troopers briefly detained and then released about 20 people suspected of being in the country illegally Saturday morning on a farmers land 24 miles north of central Mission, the landowner said.
About 8 a.m. Saturday, Lee Adams said he noticed a lot of activity in the brush on his large rural property. He called a DPS trooper, who called for backup. A group of troopers which included five cars and two helicopters eventually rounded up a group of people who appeared to possibly be in the country illegally, Adams said.
But in less than an hour, the cars and helicopters scattered, allowing the people they detained to do the same.
They said theres nothing they can do, the only thing they could do was detain them for 30 minutes and theyve been there for 45, Adams said. Which I dont agree with, I think all law enforcement agencies should work together.
Adams then called a local constables deputy. He and the deputy found 27 people who were still on the property, he said. With Adams agreeing to press charges, the deputy held the people for criminal trespass until U.S. Border Patrol agents came in at least three waves between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. to pick them up for suspected immigration violations.
The constables service needs some help out here, Adams said. When we, the public, want law enforcement, youre not just thinking about constable or sheriffs department or Highway Patrol or Border Patrol. Youre thinking about all of them together. And thats the problem theyre not working together.

Ah but they ARE working together to violate common sense and serve the interests of leftists and racial bigots in state and federal government. And that’s the problem.
Texas is being invaded and the Feds nor the state can do a damned thing. It’s got nothing but worse since Obama took office.
Just a new voting block that the Dems want to create and the establishment Reps want to help them do.
Gov. Rick Perry should send his National Guard to his borders! Okay, maybe they'll be co-opted by the bad Feds but the only other option is an armed civilian rebellion.
Texans are outraged but collectively don't realize to what degree because the media has their orders to keep quiet about it.
Oh yeah, I do get it. If you can’t win in the arena of ideas then you cheat. he’s going to try and flip the state with illegal votes. Yep I get it and I don’t like it one bit.
“Catch and relase” is for carp.
I don’t think this is a DPS problem. It’s a DHS problem. DHS is pushing back years of mutual aid agreements so the administration can avoid deporting illegals. Now they are doing it in areas that are the major human trafficking routes into the US.
