One of the Border Patrol Agents who was around during the 1986 Amnesty discussed various issues relating to the Border, from a letter to Senator Kyl outlining the feelings of betrayal towards Kyl for his input on the Senate Bill that does not reflect Kyl's previous statements. He commented on how many illegals get through the border and under the Senate Bill they would be legalized.

He mentioned they were still processing applications from the 1986 AMNESTY and now they want to try for 12-20 million.

He also wonders why the Border Patrol would sponsor NASCAR, with close to one million dollars, and yet 25 to 30 vehicles could be purchased or other better uses made with this huge amount of money.

Washington — U.S. Customs and Border Protection Border Patrol has sponsored a NASCAR Busch Series car to rev up its ambitious hiring and recruiting of individuals interested in pursuing a career in border security.
