Thousands of illegal aliens cross Southern Arizona every day, and some are probably violent criminals, a high-ranking Tucson area Border Patrol agent told a Green Valley audience Friday.

Roger San Martin, chief of the Tucson station, Darcy Olmos, head of training operations, and Lisa Reed, community relations director for the Tucson Sector, outlined some of the tough jobs the Border Patrol faces daily in a talk to the Solano Homeowners' Association meeting.

The Tucson station is one part of the Tucson Sector, which includes most of Arizona, and is headquarters for about a dozen stations.

I suppose these "BP's" find it safer to warn people to stay out of the 'bad guys'" way, rather than to go out and apprehend them, and risk a long prison sentence if something goes wrong. I don't blame them one BIT. If I was a BP, I'd leave my gun at HOME....

It is for sure that the Border Patrol has a tough job, I have found most of them to be very compassionate while still doing their job.

Yeah...we have a President who thinks nothing of putting them in prison for doing their jobs and yet fails to do his own job as he should.

Yes, he's the one who should be in prison.

I couldn't agree with you more!!! In fact, I would love and smile if I were to see him in shackles, along with his whole damn administration.

His term is almost over thank God, he has done so much damage in the last 8 years, I feel sorry for who ever has to clean up his mess.

In all fairness; some of Bush's team can be salvaged I suspect.

As for Dubya himself..........there will be justice.

That is nice they are warning us of illegal aliens! Little too late, I think they have dug in, in every state already. Moderator Cut: Inappropriate Comments
