Border patrol agents around a closed school on the southeast side conducted a drill on the Carson Middle School campus near Pantano and Stella on Tuesday.
A spokesman says members of a border patrol tactical unit, BORTAC, were doing routine training. He says BORTAC is similar to a police department's SWAT team, except Bortac can go global.
Tucson News Now received several calls about this, especially because there's been a proposal to use some of the closed TUSD schools as temporary shelters for the immigrant children coming into the U.S.
