I think it'd be fun to work border patrol for a summer. What do you guys think, good idea or bad idea?

People who have elderly family close to the borders are moving them farther in to the state. There's been a war brewing for years. It is coming over the river occasionally.

Probably would be fun if they have them on the Canadian border. On the southern border it would be dangerous and boring most of the time unless you just love sand, cactus, heat, dry weather, loads of sunshine, snakes, scorpions, illegals, murders,kidnappings and stumbling over dead rotting bodies. :banana:

Surely you don't mean the Mexican border???? I had a cousin by marriage who worked the Canadian border in summers and it didn't look too bad. That was before 9/11.

I would do it in a heart beat. I don't know that it would be "fun". The risk is significant (to say the least), but the money would be good enough I think.

Why not just join the army?? At least you would be better equipped. ;-)

The army would be the last one I'd join.

If you're talking about the US Border Patrol, I don't think that's a summer job. There's a pretty stiff training criteria you've got to go through before you are accepted.

I don't think I'm going to do it. But I got connections within the Border Patrol.

It would be good for allot of people to at least observe and assist......it is an eye opening experience from both perspectives (pros and cons).

I do't think it matters which border you are on because both are dangerous. Had a border agent get poisoned up here. They have not caught who did it.
