The first incarnation of the U.S. Border Patrol, the Mounted
Watchmen, was created by Theodore Roosevelt in 1904. Disorganized
and poorly funded, it was responsible for patrolling the Mexican
border for illegal Chinese immigrants. Today the U.S. Border Patrol
uses advanced technology such as night-vision glasses, automatic
rifles, electronic alarms, helicopters, airplanes, and unmanned
drones to ensure the security of America's borders on land, air,
and sea. Border Patrol tracks the history of this agency,
highlighting changes in leadership, duties, equipment, and
potential threats. Key topics covered include: . -Border Patrol
duties. -Drug smuggling. -Border Patrol equipment. -Prohibition Era
issues. -Border Patrol Search Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR). -Border
Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC). -The September 11, 2001 terrorist
attacks and the borders. -Mexican drug cartels
