Read the inside story of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who spent almost 30 years patrolling and subsequently managing various teams of law enforcement officers whose duty it was to stop illegal aliens and terrorists from entering the United States. Having begun his career on the U.S.-Mexico border as a journeyman Border Patrol agent in 1971, Eugene Davis worked his way up the ladder and served at a variety of capacities before retiring as the Deputy Chief of the Blaine sector in NW Washington State. "Dangerous Red Flags: My Life as a Border Patrol Agent" offers a unique boots-on-the-ground/firsthand perspective as to how our international borders have been impacted by poor Congressional oversight, along with a clear explanation in regards to our country's, Mexico's, and Canada's misguided immigration/visa policies, which have caused so much hardship to U.S. citizens-such as occurred with the 9/11 tragedy-along with the collateral suffering of the hard-working migrates who continue to flood into the U.S. under the harshest of conditions. At times criticizing his own superiors, Eugene Davis does not pull any punches. He explains the good, the bad, and the ugly as to why millions of undocumented aliens have been able to illegally come to the United States. His is a personal story that delves into the life-risking decisions that our frontline law enforcement officers have to constantly struggle with so as to properly serve and protect their country. Many readers will probably learn for the first time how truly compassionate and well-meaning our Border Patrol agents actually are. Plus, there are true-life examples of the ill-advised shortcuts that were performed on our southern border, such as frustrated Border Patrol agents commandeering private vehicles, along with a disturbing occurrence of how our constitutional protections were once overapplied by a misguided U.S. Attorney on our northern border-via a legal loophole that almost caused a terrorist bomber to be released from custody. Telling insights are also offered in regards to the behind-the-scenes actions that were taken to track down the D.C. snipers, who were first questioned by a Border Patrol agent in Bellingham, WA, before the two killers ever began their murderous crime spree, which eventually killed 17 innocent Americans. Retired Deputy Chief Davis also explains how our out-of-control borders could easily be fixed if Congress would simply pass a comprehension E-Verify law that's similar to the legislation which was initially recommended by Congresswoman Barbara Jordan-who chaired the Commission of Immigration Reform. Davis goes through a step-by-step explanation, with historical facts, as to the primary causes behind our dysfunctional borders and points out that Beltway lobbyists have been pounding a political drumbeat, for many years, to keep wages low for a variety of hourly workers, while at the same time using our country's job magnet to entice undocumented aliens to illegally cross our borders because certain businesses do not want to pay a living wage to our own citizens."Dangerous Red Flags" is a firsthand account of the day-to-day intrigue along the U.S. border and why our immigration policies have been neglected for so many years by those with self-serving political agendas, which have allowed terrorists to enter the U.S. This book explains why tens of thousands of illegal aliens continue to cross the U.S. border and how the situation could easily be corrected in order to help prevent 9/11-type terrorists from entering the country.
