Illegals Stroll Past ABP Headquarters
No Border Patrol Agent Within Thirty Miles

Spencer 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.

Border 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," Spencer said.
