According to the February 20, 2003 issue of
the Tombstone Telegraph, the U.S. Border Patrol has run ads saying,
"If you have information on the illegal movement of people
or narcotics across the U.S. Canadian border, or if you observe
suspicious activity, we need to hear from you." American
Patrol is unaware of similar ads being run dealing with citizen
involvement along the Mexican border.
"I am delighted that at least some elements
of the Border Patrol understand the importance of citizen involvement
in the job of protecting our borders," said Glenn Spencer
of American Border Patrol. "We look forward to building
a partnership with the new Department of Homeland Security by
amplifying the effectiveness of the kind of citizen involvement
this ad is seeking, " Spencer added.
