    Lower standards=less qualified border agents

    "According to the Border Patrol's website, the academy no longer requires a high school diploma or GED for entrance, and passing test grades have been lowered from 85 percent to 70."

    On SD Channel 4, which is currently broadcasting the Padres ST game, they are running Border Patrol ads almost non-stop. As a matter of fact, they just ran 2 ads back-to-back.

    The commercial said something about having lots more agents by 2009. I'll have to listen to the verbiage next time.

    I know that's their long-term goal, but as the article says, the standards are being lowered to get there...not a good sign :no: :tdown:
