H. CON. RES. 122
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
November 16, 1999
Recognizing the United States Border Patrol's 75 years of service since
Whereas the Mounted Guard was assigned to the Immigration Service under the
Department of Commerce and Labor from 1904 to 1924;
Whereas the founding members of this Mounted Guard included Texas Rangers,
sheriffs, and deputized cowboys who patrolled the Texas frontier looking
for smugglers, rustlers, and people illegally entering the United
Whereas following the Department of Labor Appropriation Act of May 28, 1924, the
Border Patrol was established within the Bureau of Immigration, with an
initial force of 450 Patrol Inspectors, a yearly budget of $1 million,
and $1,300 yearly pay for each Patrol Inspector, with each patrolman

sectors, is responsible for protecting more than 8,000 miles of
international land and water boundaries;

also been assigned additional interdiction duties, and is the primary
agency responsible for drug interdiction between ports-of-entry;
Whereas Border Patrol agents have a dual role of protecting the borders and
enforcing immigration laws in a fair and humane manner; and
Whereas the Border Patrol has a historic mission of firm commitment to the
enforcement of immigration laws, but also one fraught with danger, as
illustrated by the fact that 86 agents and pilots have lost their lives
in the line of duty--6 in 1998 alone: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That Congress recognizes the historical significance of the United
States Border Patrol's founding and its 75 years of service to our
