This is ironic because the Rangers were known for hunting Mexicans back in the day.
Maybe he's a different kind of ranger?

Insiders are aware the DPS has become a very political agency over the last twenty years. This has been one of the most obvious political appeasement type elevations in many DPS old timers memory.
Mr. Leal is no Bill Wilson, Lefty Block or Clint Peoples.
Possibly the time has come to power down the Rangers. This was a horrible choice!
