WASHINGTON (AP) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his security detail violated both Mexican and U.S. immigration laws by crossing the border on foot during a visit near El Paso, Texas, U.S. Customs and Border Protection alleges in a letter obtained by The Associated Press.
The mayor's office flatly denied the allegation.
According to the letter, a uniformed Border Patrol agent noticed a group on the Rio Grande River flood plain south of the Tornillo, Texas, Port of Entry, taking photos of the holding facility. The agent asked if anyone from Border Patrol or public affairs was there to authorize their presence. A New York Police Department inspector said no, according to the letter, and when the agent asked the group how they arrived, they pointed to Mexico.
The agent told them they'd crossed the border illegally and asked them to remain there while he got a supervisor and took them to an official crossing for an inspection per federal law, according to the letter. But the group disregarded the order and drove back to Mexico, according to the letter.

Border protection or Border patrol? I searched this article and the majority of the internet websites are saying border protection. Something new?
Customs and Border Protection is the formal name of the agency.
I hear the cartels are looking for a few high value hostages.
Arrest and Deport him
Government officials are above the law. They’re better than us.
Why do we even have laws?
Libtard progressive DEMs have no clue about LAW nor do they actually follow/adhere to LAW unless it suits them, go figure. BlasioIdiot maximus.
The kidnappers can keep Wilhelm.
It just seems in the past it was always Border patrol in a headline. Could be me looking for journalistic subliminal messages.
laws are for normal people, not democrats. The mayor of oakland gave up the ICE raids, the setae president in Cal De Leon admitted he helps his illegal family members come and stay here and he hired an illegal to sit on a state board. Trump and sessions did nothing. They will do nothing to De Blasio.
To protect the ruling class from the underclass.
If Mexico wants him extradited so they can prosecute, I think we are honor-bound to comply. =)
Which explains why they didn't bother with Bill de Blasio.
Security details? What's he afraid of...rapists, drug dealers, murderers? He's in Mexico for crying out loud, great people and a safe country.
I've actually been pulled over a couple of times by these folks while driving near the Canadian border. Apparently they don't need probable cause. I told my wife "La Migra searched my car today".
And why would a NY Police Dept inspector be there? Are the people of NYC paying him to inspect/violate the southern border?
Why didn’t he use the NYPD plane again?
I'm reminded of the O. Henry story "The Ransom of Red Chief".
The party is from New York, not America
