Raul Rodriguez was proud to be a border agent. For 18 years, he searched for people and drugs hidden in cargo before it entered the United States.
In his years of service as a Customs and Border Protection officer, he initiated the deportations of thousands of people. His job gave him security and a sense of purpose.
One day, in 2018, that all came crashing down. Investigators came to Rodriguez’s office in McAllen, Texas, to tell him his career in immigration—and his military service before that—was based on a lie.
Rodriguez’s United States citizenship was fraudulent. He was an undocumented immigrant himself.
