EL PASO, Texas — A weekend protest sparked the ire of U.S. Border Patrol supporters after accusations that a memorial to fallen agents was defaced at the National Border Patrol Museum in El Paso.
About two dozen protesters — some with bandannas covering their faces — held banners, sang and chanted in a take-over-style demonstration Saturday afternoon inside the museum on Trans Mountain Road.
The museum is not a part of the Border Patrol. The museum, which has free admission, is run on donations and by volunteers.
