It's been reported that Border Patrol agents don't have the right to shoot into Mexico.
Tonight we've learned that's not true. Border Patrol says there is no such policy that says agents can't shoot into Mexico.
However agents are trained to use great discretion when doing so. Representatives also said agents have the right to protect themselves, fellow agents, and the public if threatened.
