    Border Patrol officers are supposed to be screened to make sure that they are not xenophobes from anti-immigrant groups. A very high percentage are not.

  2. George Rappolt says:

    You don’t have to be a xenophobe when you join the Border Patrol to be corrupted by the internal culture of cruelty after you join. This is a well-known social psychological phenomenon: anyone in a prison-guard-like role is extremely likely to begin abusing the people in his/her care, especially if the other people in the organization are doing it too.
