Aguilar No Longer Top Authority
in Border Patrol Tucson Sector
Pressure from American Border Patrol and Others Leads to Change

David Aguilar, Chief, Border Patrol Tucson Sector. Sources report that he continued to describe American Border Patrol as vigilantes despite numerous press reports to the contrary.
   American Patrol has learned from reliable sources that David Aguilar, head of the Tucson Sector of the Border Patrol, been relieved of his "Operational" and "Financial" authorities because he failed to control Cochise County (even though he told DC the area was under control). The pressure brought about by American Border Patrol and other citizen activities in the area has resulted in DC assuming control of the strategy in the Tucson Sector.
   Agents will be moved from the West desert and detailed in from other areas to get Cochise County under control. The operational strategy will be directed from Headquarters Border Patrol.

Red DotBorder Patrol Denies Story
January 24, 2003 -- According to reports, Border Patrol, Washington, D.C, is denying that Aguilar is out as head of Tucson Sector. American Patrol sticks by its story. Aguilar may be physically in Tucson, however we understand from an impeccable source that his authority has been stripped. -- Glenn Spencer
