Jim Fox, Boy Scout Troop 111 leader, told Iowa KCCI television the boys were threatened by the agents for taking a photo.
“The agent took his camera. Told them they would be arrested. Fined possibly $10,000 and ten years in prison… The agent had a loaded gun pointed at the boy’s head… I am outraged by the fact that we have 18 boy scouts that want to come home. Yet, we have southern borders …It’s like a sieve.”
