I hope this is a difference group of BP agents: 

An upsetting update from our friends at No More Deaths/No Mas Muertes:
“Border Patrol Surveilling and Harassing Humanitarian Aid Camp
For the last 48 hours, Border Patrol agents have surrounded No More Deaths’ Byrd Camp, actively surveilling the first aid station and base camp, threatening and harassing humanitarian aid volunteers, and interfering with our ability to provide life-saving food, water, and medical aid to migrants and refugees in distress.
This targeted surveillance is an attack on No More Deaths’ life-saving aid work, and in violation of agency commitments not to interfere with aid groups working to end death and suffering of migrants in the desert.
We call on Border Patrol to immediately cease surveillance of No More Deaths’ camps and harassment of No More Deaths’ volunteers.”
