“So you are telling agents not to chase suspects coming across the border? That’s insane! Why?”

Hearing the former president of the Border Patrol Union of California tell me so felt like I’d get scalded by the flaming bureaucratic sun if I stood any closer to him. So I shuffled a bit to the left in my booth hoping to escape a solar flare.

Sometimes you hear things coming out of these large agencies like the VA, DMV, and Border Patrol that make you wonder how these agencies don’t just come tumbling down like a Miami condo.

America spends billions on border protection and on trying to keep really bad people out. Instead, we lock up kids and good hard-working people trying to achieve a better life, but let the narcos drive off into the sunset.

But Why Tell That to the Border Agents?

The reason the union in Imperial Valley, California, was advising officers to not pursue suspects is that an agent, doing his job, gave chase to a narco suspect. In the chase, he damaged his vehicle and was suspended by the agency.

For a damaged vehicle…

How does this happen we all are asking at this point with our inside voices?

If you know anything about economic theory it’s very simple.
