Mount Up: U.S. Border Patrol to be in Parade

Inaugural officials have started selecting applicants to march in the big Jan. 20 parade, and sources said among the first to be notified is an outfit from the U.S, Border Patrol, that will include horses, bagpipes and drums, and a motorcyle contingent.

Some 700 groups from around the country have applied to be in the inauguration parade, and have been waiting for weeks to find out if they have been picked. About 100 will likely get the nod, and those notifications are now going out. sources said.

The border patrol application was filed from patrol headquarters in Washington.

That's amazing, considering the contempt Washington has for the Border Patrol. Ramos and Campeon should be at the head of that contingent.
