LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents and Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers participated in Texas A&M International’s (TAMIU) Fall International Student Orientation in Laredo, Texas.
On August 22, agents presented to the international students, in the United States with an F-1 or J-1 visa, information about their responsibilities to maintain their status while in the U.S. The students also learned about the duties of the U.S. Border Patrol. Included in the group were students from Netherlands, Germany, Nepal, Spain, Australia, Thailand, Mexico and France.
The students benefitted from the presentations conducted by both Border Patrol and OFO in conjunction with TAMIU’s Office of International Engagement. This was a great opportunity to educate these students and welcome them into the Laredo community.
