Designed to Fail -- Again
U.S. Agents Working For the Other Side

"It's going to get worse before it gets better."
American Patrol Report Comment -- May 27  
    According to the New York Times, 62 percent of the Border Patrol Academy class of 2006 were Hispanic.
    The head of the Border Patrol, David "No Confidence" Aguilar, is Hispanic. Many of the supervisors in the field are Hispanic (read Mexican). There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that these supervisors look at illegal aliens from Mexico as "their people."
    Now comes a New York Times with a report that corruption in the ranks of the Border Patrol is rampant and most of the names in the report are Hispanic.
    Are we to be surprised when we find Hispanic Border Patrol agents willing to help "their people?" More the reason to build that double fence.
