Border Patrol in Texas
Bill 602 in the Texas Senate came into force last Friday and the agency is obliged to comply with it the applicable law.
It should be noted that federal agents are required to complete a training program to carry out the tasks of search, seizure and arrest for serious crimes.
Aizar Cavazos, a veteran of the Border Patrol, spoke off-camera ValleyCentral to explain that they can have coordination with the DPS and local authorities so that it would be easier for them to carry out operations.
The new law specifies that the crime must be committed in at a port of entry or border checkpoint.
Sister Norma Pimentel of Catholic Charities talked to ValleyCentral about the law:
“We must not overlook the importance of also protecting life and respecting and caring for human life. And I think that’s my biggest concern. One does not ignore the other.”
She also said she trusts the border patrol personnel:
“I firmly believe that the Border Patrol is good men and women, and in general I believe that is exactly what they do. “They follow the law because it is their responsibility to protect our country and ensure the security of our border.”
Senate Bill 602 was one of six bills passed passed by the state legislature and signed by Governor Greg Abbott with the aim of increasing border security.
