Border Patrol assist in Bahamas relief, busts gang members


The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been demonized for enforcing existing immigration, including some of the controversial border security and detention methods that both President Obama and President Trump employed.

Because they are vilified in the media and by numerous federally elected officials, the CBP has mounted an aggressive public relations campaign to paint the real picture of what the agency does on a regular basis.
