TREASON. And a total disgrace to the brave men and women who risk their butts everyday trying to secure the border and protect this nation.

Of the nearly 300 cases of bribery and corruption committed by BP or customs officers 90% were Spanish (mostly Mexican) surnamed. Is this a coincidence or the norm for this particular nationality and culture. It is such a common thing in the nation of Mexico that the populace fear law enforcement more than the criminals, whom many believe are one in the same. perhaps the fedral government here should be a little more selective in its hiring practices. Backgrond checks should include personal monetary transactions.

Ramos and Compean were also Border Patrol agents. Bush and Sutton together framed them and sent them to prison for over 11 years each.
How come - WHY - doesn't Bush go after crooked Agents??

Donny; Apples and oranges. Try the Canadian border. Is is a coincidence that the offices down there Speak English only. Could this be the norm of these people? I sure am curious to find out from what source you got your information.

Trin, criminals of any particular ethnic tend to gravitate towards for some very basic reasons. Language and cultural roots tend to form a bond among criminals of each specific crime groups. This bond can be extended to customs and border patrol agents quite easily. Its rather obvious when one looks at Latino street and prison gangs, Italian and Russian mafia,Chinese Triad and Japanese Yakuza membership is based on race. A Mexican narco-trafficker or human smuggler will always attempt to compromise a Mexican"American" agent because language and culture means that snitching would be prohibitive due to ethnic allegiance. And the bribery money, oh yes, muchas dolares. Well anyway, not all corrupt CBP agents are Mexican/Latino, there are some Whites who do it just for the money.
