To some, the Trump endorsement could cast doubt over agents, raising questions about whether their actions are motivated more by personal animus against migrants than their professional duty to carry out the law. Don McDermott, a former supervisor of an anti-smuggling unit in San Diego, said the endorsement vote by a small group of union leaders — 11 in all — threatened to reflect negatively on all agents.
Trump would expose both the union and the individual members to accusations of xenophobia and even racism," McDermott said. Some think the threats of image damage are overblown. In the deserts and mountains, after long treks and mistreatment by smugglers, the sight of an agent is often a relief, they say.
Union leaders said the leadership backed Trump because he's the only candidate who makes border security a priority. Trump's border wall proposal, along with mass deportations and other security measures, are necessary to reduce illegal immigration, they say.
Shawn Moran, the union's vice president, dismissed concerns that siding with Trump tarnishes the agency's reputation. But in communities where relations with the Border Patrol have been fraught with mistrust, leaders and agents fear the overheated rhetoric could manifest in ugly ways. A group of agents in El Paso asked that their local union disavow the endorsement, drawing support from numerous business and community leaders.
Their attempt narrowly failed in a vote. Donald Trump calls his proposed Muslim ban just a 'suggestion'. A white nationalist is among Donald Trump's pledged delegates in California. Skip to content. He was thus engaged with his head bent and his arms thrust out in front feeling his way, when a low horizontal limb slid under his chin and as it almost lifted him off his feet brought him to a sudden stop.

I wonder if me hid is left on me shoulders! A few rods farther and he came upon a sight which caused him to halt as abruptly as before, with a strong inclination to turn about and go back to his canoe. In a small open space a fire of pine cones, twigs and branches was burning beside the trunk of a fallen tree. Resting on the top of the blaze was a tomato can, filled with bubbling coffee, whose aroma reached the nostrils of Mike at the moment he caught sight of the fire.
Indulge in Escapades : The Boy Patrol Around the Council Fire
On the log sat a ragged, frowsy tramp, with a crooked stick in his hand tending the blaze, while on the ground half lying down and half sitting up, was a second vagrant sucking a corncob pipe. You remember the two nuisances who called upon Dr. Spellman and because of their insolence were sharply rebuffed by him, though his wife, in the kindness of her heart, gave them food. They were ready to suffer harsh treatment and privation rather than submit to either. Hutt, who was smoking the pipe, slowly rose to his feet, stretched his arms over his head, and beckoned with his grimy forefinger.
The grotesqueness of the invitation appealed to Mike and he walked forward, recalling that he had not his buckthorn cane with him. Had he gone for a tramp through the woods he would have held it in his hand, but it was in his way when using the canoe. Not that Mike Murphy expected any trouble with these men, but the thought which came to him was natural under the circumstances.
He approached in his confident fashion, with a grin on his face, halted a pace or two from the fire, and with the couple examining him, made the Boy Scout salute. This was a pretty crisp salutation, but it need not be said that Mike felt no more regard for the couple than do all respectable persons. He remained standing and did not go nearer.
Mike had not shown tact. He ought to have reflected that it was imprudent to rouse the resentment of two full grown men of so lawless a character as these tramps undoubtedly were. Was the Irish youth angry? I cannot do justice to his feelings, so let us try to imagine his state of mind. Prudence demanded that he should try to conciliate the scamps, or, failing in that, to dash off at the top of his speed, but two reasons checked this course.
You know he was not formed for running, and either one of the tramps could have overtaken him by half trying. The other reason was that Mike never ran from any foe. He would die fighting before showing the white feather. Convinced that nothing could avert a fierce struggle, he instantly prepared for it. He would have felt better had his shillaleh been in his grasp, but it has already been shown that his only weapons were those which nature had furnished and no youth of his years could have known better how to use them.
While it may be a relief to picture one in his situation as baffling, if not defeating two burly despoilers, yet to do so would be contrary to truth. The youth recoiled a single step, closed his fists and assumed an attitude of defense. Saxy Hutt, still stood grinningly listening and watching. As he viewed the situation it was preposterous to think his pal would need his help.
Three Fires Council
None the less, he would be quick to give it should the call be made. This sounded like the wildest kind of boasting, but it was justified. Since Mike Murphy faced the two tramps, he saw what was behind them, which they did not. In a direct line with Biggs, slightly to the left of Saxy, and no more than a dozen paces to the rear, stood Dr. Spellman with leveled revolver and face red with anger. Buzby Biggs leaped fully a foot in air, and with a gasp flashed his head about and stared at the point whence the dreadful voice had come.
