The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Customs and Border Protection posted a wide variety of new job openings this morning at their official website, including departments of Border Patrol Agents, CBP Officers, Air Interdiction Agents, Marine Interdiction Agents, and many more. The Border Patrol Agent opening states that applicants can not be over 40 years old, must be U.S. Citizens, pass a polygraph, as well as numerous other background and educational requirements.

I saw their recruitment ad on my own website today. I don't think I've ever seen an ad for the border patrol before, on any website during the past two presidencies.

Last week I was pleased as punch to see an Immigration and Customs Enforcement Border Patrol Vehicle driving down the 10 freeway in RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., HUNDREDS of miles from any border. So I couldn't resist filming this. Go Trump!

Here is what the ad said.
