http://berlindailysun.com/newsx/local-news/60539-u-s-border-patrol-sworn-inBeecher Falls, Vermont – U.S. Border Patrol agents can now make arrests in Coos County.
N.H. Commissioner of Public Safety John J. Barthelmes swore in Border Patrol agents from the Beecher Falls, Vermont Station last Thursday. This was the final step in the implementation of N.H. House Bill 1298.
I wasn't aware they previously didn't have the authority to make arrests within 100 miles of the border.
