Apparently the old "I.N.S" acronym was left in place at Naco - It Never Stops.
Local 2544 has credible reports that the Naco Station PAIC allowed Mexican Consulate personnel full, unsupervised access to illegal aliens being held at the Naco Border Patrol station. Mexican Consulate personnel were personally escorted into the Naco Border Patrol detention area by the PAIC, and were allowed to interview the witnesses of an officer-involved shooting BEFORE any law enforcement personnel interviewed them. The Mexican Consulate personnel were allowed to independently remove illegal aliens from their detention cells, move them around in the detention area, and otherwise act as though they owned the place. We must note that the last time we checked, the detention area at the Naco Border Patrol station was the property of the United States, it was a "secure" area intended for law enforcement operations, and was paid for by American taxpayers. Allowing the Mexican Consulate personnel full and unsupervised physical access to the Border Patrol detention building is not only a grave security risk, but it's disgraceful. There have been numerous reports of the Naco station PAIC kowtowing to Mexican government officials, as well as calling illegal aliens "my people" and telling area ranchers that they "stole" their land from Mexico. Allowing the Mexican Consulate personnel full access to witnesses of a shooting prior to any law enforcement personnel being allowed to interview the witnesses compromises the investigation, to put it mildly. Mexican Consulate officials have for years coached illegal aliens into making allegations against Border Patrol agents. They don't like us, they don't like our mission, and they clearly advocate continued massive illegal immigration into this country.
Agents in Naco should disregard any statements by the Naco station PAIC calling these reports "vicious rumors".
