This is very interesting. I'd love to see comments from those inside this area.
I know that in some parts of Texas, Border Patrol agents are turning a blind eye to illegals coming through the fence in full view of US nationals and the Agents. They proceed to taxis who take them to the nearest social services office to register, get their $1500, and back into the cab they go to get to the DMV to get their driver's licenses.
The Border Patrol refuses to stop them; they are under orders not to. They also refuse the process to be photographed.
Got this first hand from someone who has seen this on several occasions and was prevented from videotaping.
