Is Bob Levinson, a former FBI agent and CIA contractor, still alive after going missing on a small Iranian island in 2007?

The FBI believes he is still alive, according to Gevinson’s wife, Christine Levinson.

The family last saw evidence that Levinson was alive when they saw a video of Levinson in late 2010. 

Levinson’s wife said the FBI told her that investigators have “no information to indicate” he’s not alive.

“[The Iranians] are responsible for him. He went missing on Kish Island, which is part of Iran. He was only there 24 hours and they know exactly what happened to him,” she said.

“Iran has said they will investigate and get back to us. Unfortunately, they never get back to us. They’ve said this for 10 years now,” said Levinson, adding she hopes the Trump administration will renew talks with Tehran about her husband.

“I know that President Trump is a deal-maker. He can get the job done,” she concluded.

President Trump’s pledge to hire 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents is no easy task because the agency is already struggling to maintain its current staff.

In hopes of recruiting more people to apply, the government is holding career fairs around the country and in colleges.

“Immigration, it’s a hot topic right now,” said Adam Leasure, a 19-year-old undergraduate at Temple University in Philadelphia, where one career fair was held. “But I think that when they enforce the laws they have to, such as getting the big cartels and that stuff out of the border, I think it’s very important and very interesting.”

Under Obama’s administration, Border Patrol struggled to fill open positions, partly because of the agency’s rigorous screening process.

“Criminal justice students are always interested in federal law enforcement because it actually pays much better than regular, local county or city agencies are going to pay,” said Professor Cheryl Irons, a former prosecutor who teaches criminal law at Temple

Trump has pledged to ramp up the deportation of undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes. But Border Patrol needs more staff to carry out the plan.
