Segment One: Shawn Moran and Chris Cabrera provide an update on the OTM (other Than Mexican) crisis hitting the southern border. Over 1000 OTMs awaiting processing in San Diego, many giving scripted claims of “credible fear.” The word is out and the end result is thousands of illegal aliens being released into the United States.
CBP has announced the worst award in its history, the Use of Force Averted Award. In an attempt to appease its critics, CBP has decided to sacrifice officer safety and put its people in harm’s way. This award will get agents killed.
Segment Two: 667 days ago Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega, Jr. was murdered in Texas by two previously deported illegal aliens. CBP refuses to classify his murder as a line of duty death, even though he took law enforcement actions to prevent a robbery and protect his family. Shawn and Chris talk to Andrea Brown, Javier Vega’s widow.
Segment Three: Marie Vega, Javier Vega’s mother, joins Shawn and Chris to discuss why her son’s murder should be classified as a line of duty death.
Segment Four: Art Del Cueto joins the show to talk about CBP’s newest award, how the Vega family has been treated, and how some residents in St. David, AZ view Border Patrol agents. All in all it does not square with the reality of how Border Patrol agents work.
