Past ABP Headquarters
No Border Patrol Agent Within Thirty Miles
Tapes Group Passing Headquarters
Sierra Vista, Ariz. -- Nov. 14, 2003
-- As has happened many times before, Glenn Spencer spotted a
group of suspected border intruders (SBIs - later determined
to be illegal aliens), on or near the headquarters of American
Border Patrol. The incident occurred this morning at 6:40 am,
Mountain Standard Time. Spencer, who was playing with his dog
Star at the time, grabbed a camera and taped the group of six
as they passed ABP's headquarters.
Patrol Humvee Arrives Late
Spencer notified the Border Patrol
at about 6:41 a.m. but was told that they were already aware
of the group. He followed the group about a mile until they reached
Arizona state route 92 where they sat and waited. A Border Patrol
Humvee finally appeared at 7:20 am., leaving plenty of time for
the group to have been picked up by a "load vehicle"
had Spencer not been observing. "We had thirty miles of
border open to anyone who wanted to cross this morning,"
