How to Become a Bounty Hunter

Border Patrol Agent Says She Was Fired for Trying to Care for Her Baby

Steve Neavling

All Sophia Cruz wanted was be a mom and a Border Patrol agent.

But those plans were derailed, she claims, when she was fired in April after being pressured to work against her doctor’s orders while caring for her baby, KOB Eyewitness News 4 reports.

“All I wanted to do was nurse my daughter.  And all I wanted to do was be a mom and an agent,” Cruz said in an interview with News 4.

She was fired in April for not renewing her firearms certification.

Cruz said she didn’t renew because she wasn’t provided with a new armored vest to fit because the shape of her body changed after having the baby.

Her story is not an accurate portrayal of the facts. Her body armor was not an issue. It fit her just fine and the government does not have to buy you another if you gain 15 pounds.. The issue was that she did not want to do Border Patrol work. She wanted to work as a secretary and earn a Border Patrol salary. She refused to go to certify with her service gun. Without the certification she could not carry her service gun, a condition of her employment. So she lost her job.

She will NOT be missed.
