United States Border Patrol Uniforms Made in Mexico
Pretty ironic, don't you think?
Some are concerned about security issues:
""What system is in place to ensure that these uniforms are not stolen en masse or sold outright in Mexico to be used by terrorists, alien
smugglers or drug dealers who could cross unimpeded into the United States?" asked Mr. Dassaro, a veteran agent. "
I am more concerend with the economic issues:
"Our contracts allow us to seek out the best value for the government and that means we use vendors who might not be located in the United
States," Mrs. Todaro said. "In the end, we end up getting the best price and the best value."
