One day in July, 2014, during a humanitarian crisis in which tens of thousands of Central American migrants crossed the U.S. border without papers, three government buses carried a group of women and children toward a Border Patrol station in Murrieta, California. Before they could get there, however, angry protesters gathered along a roadway to block their path, holding signs (“Go home!”) and chanting (“U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”). After a brief standoff, the drivers were forced to turn around and take their passengers elsewhere. Murrieta became an instant flashpoint in an ugly debate over immigration that summer, but the incident also raised a logistical question: How did the protesters even know the buses were coming? The Department of Homeland Security, of which the Border Patrol is a part, had not publicly released information about them.
And our choices led us to different outcomes.

In the days that followed, conservative news outlets reported that the protesters had received tips about the bus trips from a San Diego-based Border Patrol agent named Ron Zermeno, who was also a representative of the largest Border Patrolmen’s union, called the National Border Patrol Council. Zermeno’s politics were no secret; he’d made several appearances on cable news to lambast the D.H.S. for transporting undocumented migrants to detention facilities rather than deporting them outright. According to a report by the Center for New Community, a nonprofit research and advocacy group, Zermeno was just one of many National Border Patrol Council representatives who with anti-immigrant activists in recent years—giving them tours of the borderlands, leaking information and data about migrants to them, and delivering testimony at their behest before Congress. While some of these activists have been local vigilantes, others have come from two of the most prominent nativist groups in the country: the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR
) and the Center for Immigration Studies (C.I.S). The Southern Poverty Law Center considers both of them “hate groups.” (The National Border Patrol Council has denied suggestions that it works improperly with these groups and insists that it meets with organizations from across the political spectrum.)
