Retired Texas Border Patrol Agent Says Agents Have Been Denied Service in Restaurants in El Paso

Border PatrolBy Allan Lengel

Retired Border Patrol agent and field operations supervisor John Hubert tells the El Paso Times that it’s not always easy being an agent in El Paso.

“I learned early on that if you’re a Border Patrol agent in El Paso… basically you’re an object of scorn to about 75 percent of the population,” Hubert told the paper.

“But if you get away from the border and go somewhere else, people look at the Border Patrol agent as one of the upper-level law enforcement officers in the U.S. If you go to Dallas and tell them you’re a Border Patrol agent, there’s a lot of respect.

“If you tell someone in El Paso you’re a Border Patrol agent, well, I’ve seen restaurants refuse to serve Border Patrol agents,” said the retired agent and field supervisor with 30 years experience. “You go in there in your uniform and they tell you to leave.”
