The Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) trains to protect America’s borders from terrorists, illegal immigrants, and all threats attempting to cross our nation’s borders. The United States Border Patrol trains, qualifies, and maintains some of the most highly skilled personnel within any governmental agency. The BORTAC skillset rivals any military unit in any arsenal. What makes BORTAC unique is the fact that they are not a military unit. They train and equip themselves strictly to defend the nation’s borders; your back yard.
