Happy Hour Politics: Michael Page, US Border Agent on Border Patrol Issues and Control

Happy+Hour+Politics%3A+Michael+Page%2C+US+Border+Agent+on+Border+Patrol+Issues+and+Control

Carlsbad CA— Join Happy Hour Politics on Wednesday, June 17th, to meet Michael Page, US Border Patrol Agent. Michael is with the Information and Communication Division, and is the Border Community Liaison Agent in charge of the Northwestern part of the San Diego Sector. He currently works at the I-5 Checkpoint in San Clemente. Be there on June 17th to hear about the Border Patrol and its operations, and the problems and concerns facing these agents on a daily basis. Keep in mind that our San Diego border is the busiest in the nation.
The United States Border Patrol is the mobile, uniformed law enforcement arm of U.S. Customs and Border Protection within the Department of Homeland Security responsible for securing U.S. borders between ports of entry. Since 9/11, the focus of the Border Patrol has changed to detection, apprehension and/or deterrence of terrorists and terrorist weapons. Although the Border Patrol has changed dramatically since its inception in 1924, its overall mission remains unchanged: to detect and prevent the illegal entry of aliens into the United States. Together with other law enforcement officers, the Border Patrol helps maintain borders that work, facilitating the flow of legal immigration and goods while preventing the illegal trafficking of people and contraband.
The Happy Hour Politics events are held the third Wednesday each month from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at The Crossings, 5800 The Crossings Dr, Carlsbad. There is a $20 cash cover charge (includes appetizers). Drinks are available for purchase.
For more information, contact Coordinator Melanie Burkholder at 307-690-7814 or hhpcbad@gmail.com. Check us out on Facebook as Happy Hour Politics, or follow us on Twitter @hhpcbad.
Please RSVP by June 10th. Happy Hour Politics is a satellite club of Carlsbad Republican Women Federated (CRWF).
