Since 1924 the Border patrol have a proudly history of service to our nation. Although there had been an enormous change that had affected almost every aspect on its operation since the early days. The U.S Immigration Services patrolled the border to prevent the illegal alien crossing in 1904. Z”In March 1915 inspectors also called Mountain Guards operated through Texas, even though they never totaled more than 75” (Security, 2015). They kept operating through the entire west California trying to prevent all illegal immigration. There was an authorized congress to separate a group of mountain guards; these guards had broader arrest authority.

The certain limits resulted on people to try illegally attempts to enter the country illegally and failed. This mission became very important to the U.S Government and the Border Patrol agency.
In 1932 the Border Patrol was placed under the authority of two directors, one in charge of the Mexican border office in El Paso, the other in charge of the Canadian border. Smuggling liquor was a big concern because it was too often accompanied by alien smuggling. Border searches fall under the fourth amendment which requires that all search and seizure have to be conducted by a governmental agent and, has to have reasonable and supported by probable cause (Wallance, 2013). Courts have stated that all search and seizures has to have a warrant conducted by the government.
Any violation made to these requirements could result to suppression of evidence. Few exceptions to a warrant and probable cause are more firm on the border...
