Some Border Patrol Agents Take a Chance on Love

The LA Times is reporting...

It's an open secret: By day they deport illegal immigrants, but at night they date them.

DOUGLAS, Ariz. — The forbidden romance between the Border Patrol agent and the illegal immigrant began in a gym.

Maria Terrazas, 31, met Jose Ruiz three years ago at LM's Body Builders in this remote border town. Terrazas, a waitress and mother of two, knew Ruiz was a catch. As a Border Patrol agent, Ruiz belonged to an elite class in town: available men with good jobs and an education.

The two began dating, and their relationship continued even after Terrazas was deported to Mexico in November 2004. She quickly bluffed her way through U.S. customs and back to Ruiz.

Terrazas, who said several of her illegal immigrant girlfriends have relationships with border agents, saw nothing unusual about dating a man whose job was to keep people like her out of the U.S. "He had his own job and I had mine," Terrazas said in an interview. "I never thought it'd cause problems."

But it did.

"Jose Ruiz" sure, this whole thing is a big joke, if the gov ever got serious about fixing this border problem we would not have Jose guarding the southern border. Put Jose on the northern border. Put Bubba with a M16 on the southern border, Bubba may not speak spanish, but the M16 sure does.

Would this be considered "Fraternization"? Accomplice in the commission of a crime? Or is it a "Stockholm Syndrome"? Sympathy for the Devil?
