The US Border Patrol is looking to beef up its force. The agency held a recruiting event at the Lubbock Civic Center Friday. It's part of an effort to hire 6,000 agents by the end of this year.
Lubbock Border Patrol Agent Robert Green says, "We're just looking for somebody who is willing to go out and put some good effort into a career that will get you into a situation where you can help protect the United States."
Initial assignments would be along the border states of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. For more information click here.
