Yesterday I passed by a Border Patrol SUV running C/O 35.5 (35.488 to be exact) on a desolate country road near Columbus New Mexico (“BFE”). First time I have ever seen any radar coming from a Border Patrol vehicle. Can BP enforce speed?

true, what are the illegals going to say, im turning you in for pulling me over for speeding. maybe the local sheriff gave them a deputy card so they can use that as p.c. to check cars out

true but wouldnt they have to have some kind of deputy card to have the authority to pull over a car for a state or city infraction
that's assuming the *victim* knows to ask. (They probably won't ever actually write a citation anyway,..............but have the driver on the psychological defensive at the onset of the pullover) Border Patrol have a *schutzstaffel* (SS) mentality anyway. New York City (100 miles south of here) has NYPD (that's New York City PD, for you non-locals) patrolling the roads around the water reservoirs locally. They pull over and cite for DWI, speeding, tint violations, inspection stickers, you name it. Has ZERO to do with their stated mission (protecting the water )

I'm not sure how it works down there but up here sometimes people working for other agencies but still having law enforcement credentials are "deputized" by local departments. We have some game wardens for instance, who normally can't write trespass tickets here, that are deputized by a county to do so during the course of their work. They can also enforce speed and anything else a Sheriff could.

Maybe there's something similar down south? It would be pretty convenient for the border patrol and the agency that "deputized" them. Then the border patrol would be able to enforce federal laws in it's general jurisdiction of 100 miles or so from the border and it could enforce state/county laws. It could stop someone for speeding and then go fishing for immigration related no nos.
