Border Patrol Agents Tricked into Providing Protection for Convicted Drug Smuggler

Border Patrol agents are furious that they were tricked into providing “armed security for a cartel wedding” of a convicted drug smuggler who has been banned from Mexico.

The groom, Brian Houston, is awaiting sentencing after he was accused of smuggling large quantities of heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine in February.

“The agents are upset, feel like they were taken advantage of, feel like they were duped,” Joshua Wilson, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1613, told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “Turns out we provided armed security for a cartel wedding.”

The wedding took place at steel border gate that enables people who cannot cross the border to meet for about three minutes each.

“It’s a statement that love has no borders,” Houston told the newspaper.

A Border Patrol screening did not show any criminal activity, so agents were unaware they were protecting a convicted drug smuggler.

A Secret Service agent who was severely injured in a car crash in New Hampshire last month didn’t let his injuries stop him from getting married.

The New York Post reports that Garrett FitzGerald, who can’t stand on his own, because of a spinal cord injury, tied the knot Saturday at Massachusetts General Hospital.

FitzGerald, who was part of Hillary Clinton’s protective detail when the crash occurred, was one of four Secret Service agents involved in a car crash on Dec. 29 in Wakefield, New Hampshire.

A GoFundMe page also was created to help raise funds for FitzGerald.

The 25-year-old walked into a wedding reception in Louisiana with law enforcement attire and said he was with Homeland Security.

Apparently that was enough for family and friends of the bride and groom to trust him, the Times-Picayune reports.

When everyone departed and the newlyweds left for their reception, the suspect loaded the gifts into his car until he was spotted by the town’s fire chief. The family had planned to return the next day for the gifts.

The suspect was arrested and booked with theft and impersonating a law enforcement official.
