Damage from smugglers

 

As a longtime subscriber to your magazine and someone who values your focus on issues across the West, I do take exception to your “Latest” item about Sen. John McCain’s bill to increase the Border Patrol’s access to the borderlands, (HCN, 5/25/15). I can assure you that, as a retired Border Patrol agent, any environmental damage done while agents perform border security pales in comparison to smuggling.
