    Border Patrol to Close Nine Stations
    Last week, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced it plans to close nine Border Patrol Stations across the United States. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, July 7, 2012) The station closures will take place at the following locations: Lubbock, Amarillo, Dallas, San Angelo, Abilene, and San Antonio (TX); Billings (MT); Twin Falls (ID); and Riverside (CA). According to the CBP spokesman, the move to close these stations – many in strategic locations – is being done "n order to accomplish [the agency's] mission more efficiently and to use its personnel more effectively..." (Id.) While CBP states that the closures will save the agency $1.3 million per year, it has yet to explain what the trade off will be in terms of illegal alien apprehensions and drugs seized. According to CBP, the Border Patrol agents in the closed stations will be moved from these near interior stations to the border itself.

    May be good idea because since ICE is no longer detaining the deporting them, they will do a better job at the border stopping them from coming in.:confused:
