    I can't watch that for too long, it makes me so upset at the guy filming. That camera needs to be ripped right out of his hands. The search authority of a Federal Officer is completely different than the search authority of State and Locals. The BP Agent is right, you only need "mere suspicion" to further inspect someone at a checkpoint/border. By not answering a simple question, such as, "what is your citizenship?", there is the Agent's mere suspicion to further inspect. If people don't like the way the borders are run here then move to another Country. It's time to appreciate what CBP does to protect our Homeland.

        junito,
        VBT results can take up to 6 weeks to be reviewed and a determination made (Pass/Fail), I myself had to call MHC to find out after a month went by, and they had me as a PASS but the system (CASS) had not updated yet. If a month has gone by already call MHC to see what's up, I'm pretty sure you passed the VBT since you did pass the BPA oral interview. As for BP, I think they are having somewhat of a slowdown in hiring and lots of folks in the TSU line for them.

          • Does anyone know if being a prior metro cop for a large city will help at all in the hiring process or count for a higher pay grade? Of course I would still have to do the academy though...Fed's don't do academy waivers.

                          • Future for a CBPO

                            For those of you who are currently CBPOs I think it would help me and other applicants to know what our career options would be like with CBP. Is this job documented as a LE position that would qualify us for other LE jobs with other agencies? Would this job qualify us for other positions with other Federal agencies in general? If so, what type of careers? Are CBP postions NOT at a POE obtainable and something to shoot for (I've seen things listed on USAjobs.gov)? Obviously you are all still working for CBP, but if 5-10 years into your career you wanted a change what options would you have? I mean, would a person be dumb to think a CBP job could some day lead to a career with FBI, CIA, Secret Service, etc?
                            Appreciate in advance any answers that are given. I am at a crossroads and it is going to be tough for me to decide. Thanks.

                            • Port runners sentenced to lengthy prison terms

                              LAREDO, Texas - Four people who broke through barriers at the Laredo Port of Entry in October, while trying to smuggle more than 700 kilograms of marijuana, were sentenced Thursday to prison terms ranging from almost 6 years to 16 years in federal prison without parole. U.S. Attorney Tim Johnson announced the sentences; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted the investigation.

                              On Oct. 14, 2008, Jesus Rodriguez-Jasso, 28, drove a large Suburban SUV from Mexico into the United States loaded with 718 kilograms (1,580 lbs.) of marijuana along with three adult passengers. The front passenger was his wife Yolanda Fernandez-Narvaez, 28, while Angel Perez-Contreras, 30, and Guillermo Alonzo-Salazar, 18, rode in the back with the marijuana. Most disturbing to U.S. District Judge Joseph Hood was that the three minor children of defendants Rodriguez-Jasso and Fernandez-Narvaez were also riding in the back.

                              After breaking through the barrier going against traffic into the outbound lanes, Jasso led U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers on a dangerous high-speed chase through the streets of downtown Laredo. After nearly causing multiple accidents, Jasso tried to flee back to Mexico. He lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a guard booth at the outbound lanes of the bridge. After the crash, CBP officers were stunned to see the amount of marijuana and people inside the SUV, particularly the minor children.

                              After investigating the incident, ICE agents soon discovered this was not the defendants' first time engaging in such outrageous criminal behavior. On at least three prior occasions, Jasso drove the same Suburban, or a similar vehicle, accompanied by the same co-defendants and contraband into the United States, but evaded capture. At the April 23 sentencing hearing, a CBP officer testified to the shocking details of one of the prior escapes. The testifying officer was nearly killed in June 2007 when he attempted to block the path of the oncoming Suburban. As he jumped out of the way and drew his service firearm on Jasso from only a few feet away, the officer told Judge Hood, Jasso actually grabbed his own child using him as a human shield, and yelled in Spanish, "Go ahead and shoot, and you will kill my son." The officer testified he was forced to let Jasso drive by, and all the defendants escaped.

                              The United States urged the court to consider the prior port running episodes in determining the sentence of each of the defendants. The defendants, through their lawyers, opposed the recommendation. When Judge Hood determined the United States had met its burden of proving the other crimes for sentencing purposes, all four defendants asked for mercy citing economic conditions in Mexico, as well as some of their drug addictions.

                              Judge Hood sentenced Rodriguez-Jasso to almost 188 months incarceration. Perez-Contreras was sentenced to eight years in prison, Fernandez- Narvaez received six years and Alonzo-Salazar was ordered to serve 70 months, just short of six years. All federal prison terms are without parole. The defendants have been in custody since their October 2008 arrest.

                              This case was investigated by ICE and CBP, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James Ustynoski
