Border Patrol Agents Battle Drug and Human Traffickers, While Being Vilified by Activists
WASHINGTON—Six days ago, Border Patrol agent Art Del Cueto arrested a Mexican national who had illegally crossed the southwest border in the Tucson, Arizona, sector.
Del Cueto said the man told him, “You guys as Americans are weak with your laws, and we love it.”
“I laughed at it,” Del Cueto said. “I’m sitting there going, how ironic is this that I’m explaining to a Mexican national how his country’s laws are tougher than ours and he turns around and just tells me, ‘Well, it’s not my fault you guys are weak. You guys need to toughen up.’”
The porous southwest border is big business for Mexican cartels and human smuggling organizations. Their mission and their bottom line is directly tied to the amount of drugs, humans, and other contraband they can push over the border into the United States.
