The US Customs and Border Patrol was finally able to stop kids from crossing the border. It just wasn’t the border (or the children) in the news lately.
A group of Boy Scouts from Iowa were traveling from Canada into Alaska when one of the boys snapped a picture of a Border Patrol agent, according to an interview with Troop 111 leader Jim Fox on KCCI News. Things escalated from there.
“The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” Fox said.
Then things got worse. “A boy retrieving luggage from the top of the van hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head,” Fox told KCCI.
After 4 hours no one was arrested, and the boys were allowed to pass through. Minus one camera.
Good thing the Border Patrol was on top of things. Too bad they aren’t allowed to do their job at the southern border.
