Another Bush Legacy: Border Corruption
Vast Majority of his USBP recruits were Hispanic
|Anthony Martin -- The Examiner -- January 11
CBS News reported today that Mexican drug cartels are using corrupt Border Patrol agents to get illegals into the United States, according to an FBI special agent.
The special report on this latest scandal involving drug cartels and the southern border is set to air Sunday morning on the network's CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood.
According to CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, FBI special agent Terry Reed charges that corrupt U.S. Border Patrol agents are smuggling illegal aliens from Mexico into the country. Mexican drug cartels are paying off the agents with drugs, money, and sex.
Reed stated, I will tell you that drug cartels are becoming increasingly aggressive in targeting and recruiting officers to work with them, They're using cold war style tactics -- money, sex, drugs to convince officers to work with them and to help get their products and their people across the border.
American Patrol Report Comment
G.W. Bush's policy of recruiting so many Hispanics for the U.S. Border Patrol led us to a 2008 warning about exposure to corruption. A quick Google search for Border Patrol corruption produced twenty stories that we looked at. All but one of the agents involved had Hispanic surnames. This is just one reason we labeled Bush an idiot.
