Too bad you weren't part of the $1000 bet...that probably never happened anyways.

Beautiful! Stay lost in your chaos. I'm leaving the chatterbox less lonely Monday night. Drunk on displays of domestic tenderness.

Re: “Border Patrol Agents Bust Migrants Seeking Medical Aid at No More Deaths Desert Camp

It sounds like the ultimate goal is to provide medical assistance to those in need so they can continue on and break our laws. What do they do when an entrant is near death, fly them to a Tucson hospital? The liability exposure is phenomenal.BP saves lives and gets no credit.

Re: “Border Patrol Agents Bust Migrants Seeking Medical Aid at No More Deaths Desert Camp

"According to NMD, the group has had an unsigned written agreement with the Tucson Sector Border Patrol since 2013, with the federal agency pledging to not to interfere with the humanitarian camp that provides life-saving medical treatment to many migrants every year."

I find it hard to believe that anyone in authority at the Border Patrol would enter into any agreement -- signed/unsigned or verbal -- that is contrary to the rules, regulations and laws governing the agency's operations.

As for providing humanitarian aid, which is more humane: Providing an empty hope that those making this deadly journey will somehow reach their destination unscathed, or saving lives and returning people who have freely chosen to violate the law and borders of the United States.
