Tax-bloated Border Bandit Fuels Mercedes on Taxpayer Dime

by | Jan 30, 2017

Juan Fernando Barajas was arraigned this month for using ten government fuel cards to pump more than $1,700 worth of fuel into his personal black Mercedes-Benz SUV. The Nogales-based U.S. border officer also appeared to be fueling his personal F-150 extended cab pickup with the cards in security videos.

Barajas, displaying the wide girth which is a hallmark of many of the tax-feeding class, was betrayed by that very trait when cameras at multiple gas stations documented the additional layer of parasitic behavior.

Some de jour on-line comments about this story tend to suggest that Barajas’ Hispanic nature was at fault for his low morals. That is an odd point of distinction considering that most U.S. Border Patrol Agents are Hispanic.
