Why, I'm not saying - U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint, 9 February 2014



With a town named after the shape of its intersection, Why, Arizona often sounds like a question rather than an answer.
And in an Abbot and Costello-esque “Who’s on First” style interview it doesn’t take long for Agent Douglas to decide the traveler that isn’t saying comes from Left-Field.

In this US Border Patrol’s 3rd line of defense Agents Today catch more people trying to go home rather than escape it.

Agent Douglas: Run Forrest Run!
Rob: (smiles)
Agent Douglas: I’m laughing at your plate there. I’m sorry. Where are you coming from today, sir?
Rob: Why.
Agent Douglas: I’m sorry?
Rob: Why.
Agent Douglas: I’m just trying to figure out where you’re coming from.
Rob: Why, Arizona. Why.
Agent Douglas: Oh, Why, Arizona. I thought you were asking me why as in why am I asking.
Rob: Heh heh.
Agent Douglas: And where are you
