Federal Horse Patrols Used to Deter, Rescue People Crossing Illegally
SULLIVAN CITY – A local police chief says they’ve partnered with Border Patrol to deter and rescue people crossing into the U.S. illegally.
The Sullivan City police chief says there’s been a slight uptick in illegal crossings in the area. He tells KRGV’s Carolina Cruz with limited resources, they rely heavily on Border Patrol.
Just last month, a father and son were found abandoned and dehydrated in the brush. The father was taken to the hospital where he later died.
The new certified horse patrol includes two supervisory Border Patrol agents and two local police officers.
