Southwestern Ranchers Say Border Patrol Won’t Protect Them from Smugglers, Others

Southwestern ranchers are complaining that Border Patrol isn’t doing enough to protect them from smugglers and others who illegally cross the Mexican border.

The Associated Press reports that ranchers vented their frustrations during a conference of western sheriffs in Arizona.

Ranchers said they won’t even call Border Patrol anymore because they know no one will help.

Border Patrol countered that steps are being taken to improve safety.

“We want to do everything we can to stop it. We have a difference of opinion on how we do that, but this situation is not OK,” Paul Beeson, the commander for the CPB Joint Field Command in Arizona, said.
