Border Patrol Hired an Illegal Alien and Gave Him a Gun

In an almost unbelievable report...I say "almost" because anymore truth is really stranger than fiction...but, this report is over the top:

On Thursday, August 4th, 2005, suspected illegal alien Oscar Antonio Ortiz, was arrested in San Diego County, California, not only for allegedly falsifying Government documents to secure employment as a Border Patrol Agent, but also for smuggling fellow illegal aliens into the United States, while serving in his capacity as an Agent....

Just to make sure that this is a bona-fide story, I looked around...sure enough...reports are starting to come in:
