RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — The National Border Patrol Council Rio Grande Valley president says he's disappointed in Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's visit last week.
Napolitano visited with top Border Patrol officials, in McAllen, discussing border security, Paul Perez, President of the RGV National Border Patrol Council, says Napolitano did not get a true look at border security along our borders.
Mr. Perez stated, " I don't think she took the time to meet with the agents on the ground to find out how they really feel about her going around the country claiming that the border is secure the agents on the ground will tell you otherwise. She didn't meet with any of the land owners who have a lot to say about whether or not the border is secure if you talk to them and visit with them they will tell you something totally different than what she is saying."
