After a motorist was stopped on Hwy 83 and asked for I.D. by a police officer and Border Patrol agent riding in the same car, he compared the experience to what is being done in Arizona. Police spokesman, Joe Baeza, credits Operation Stonegarden funds which help agencies work collaboratively to strengthen border security.
Whether this tactic becomes the norm remains to be seen. Interagency cooperation is one thing. Doubling up is another. Things must be tough all over if law enforcement is carpooling.
