“They mentioned gathering up illegals at UTSA and sending them off in a van,” says senior Anthropology major Viktoria Zerda. “They said it in a joking manner.”
She is referring to an exchange she and another student had with agents of the U.S. Border Patrol last week.
The agents were tabling in the McKinney Humanities Building to recruit UTSA students. The recruitment efforts involved pamphlets featuring FAQ’s and photographs, lanyards with “border patrol” insignia and the opportunity to pose questions about the job to active agents.
