When I took this job I was told the same thing. I was told about the bureaucratic and legal hurdles in my way. I was told about the construction issues.
Three years later we have construction in all three RGV counties with land acquisition underway in Laredo sector. https://twitter.com/DHS_Wolf/status/1321817215910486018
They said it couldn’t be done…
They tried to block it
They tried to spin it
They tried to hide the truth
They were wrong. 400 times and counting.
This is one of the most important functions of our CBP officers particularly at the seaports.
This wood boring larva was burrowed in wood packing material found on vessels arriving from China & Turkey. @CBP Ag Specialists working at the Houston Seaport look for these highly invasive pests that threaten natural forest ecosystems & cause economic harm to the US.
As a career prosecutor I know how valuable body cam evidence can be.
I also know from my time on the bench that when any officer without a BWC was asked by a lawyer if they wanted one, 100% of the answers were YES!
Today all state and local departments that use body cameras can now wear them when part of a joint federal task force.
When asked for pilot program volunteers I jumped at the chance and @houstonpolice we are great partner with @FBIHouston @ATFHou @DEAHQ and @USMarshalsHQ https://twitter.com/TheJusticeDept/status/1321840515210424328
