We got an inside look at what it’s like on the first day for new freshman, known as “Plebes,” at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Induction Day, or “I-Day,” marks the beginning of “Plebe Summer,” a challenging six-week basic training program all future midshipmen are required to complete.

What New Navy Plebes Go Through On Their First Day At Annapolis

How Border Patrol Agents Are Trained

In April, as the crisis at the US-Mexico border began to reach a fever pitch, Senior Video Correspondent Graham Flanagan spent four days inside the United States Border Patrol Academy in Artesia, New Mexico.

Before they serve in the Border Patrol, trainees must graduate from the Academy’s six-month basic training program.

While a majority of the training is focused on law enforcement operations, the Academy also emphasizes instruction in the Spanish language in order to enhance communication between agents and the people they encounter in the field.

The agency has been the focus of intense scrutiny in recent months due to revelations about reportedly squalid conditions at Border Patrol-run detention centers where migrants, including children, wait to be processed and released.

During our time at the Academy, we did not see any training — other than Spanish instruction — that was specifically designed to prepare the trainees to work in the detention centers or to care for migrant children.

This begged the question: is the training that occurs at the Academy adequately preparing the trainees for what awaits them in the field? In a statement to Business Insider, a United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesperson said that, “The Border Patrol Academy does not conduct training related to detention officer duties… Once a trainee graduates and arrives at their station, depending on their geographical location, it now becomes the duty and responsibility of their station to further train the new agent on local policies and procedures.”

In regards to how trainees are instructed to work with children, the CBP spokesperson told Business Insider that “The Border Patrol Academy trains and teaches agents about policies and regulations related to the Flores vs. Reno/TVPRA. This is the current case precedent that governs children in short term custody.”

The 1997 Flores Settlement requires that immigration officials detaining minors provide food and drinking water, medical assistance in emergencies, toilets and sinks, adequate temperature control and ventilation, adequate supervision to protect minors from others, and separation from unrelated adults whenever possible.

According to CBP, trainees are also trained in first-aid and basic lifesaving measures.

Tracking Drug Smugglers And Unauthorized Migrants With The Coast Guard In Miami

After spending time at Coast Guard boot camp, Senior Video Correspondent Graham Flanagan travelled to Miami to see how the Coast Guard combats drug smuggling and illegal immigration from the air and the sea. 

In January, a Miami-based Coast Guard vessel was involved in the seizure of a boat carrying 132 pounds of cocaine. Earlier that month, a Miami-based Coast Guard airplane spotted a vessel carrying 35 migrants off the coast of Puerto Rico.

Flanagan spent a day aboard the Coast Guard cutter Robert Yered, which patrols the Port of Miami and the surrounding region that includes the Florida Keys and the Bahamas. Flanagan experienced a ride-along on a high-speed, water-jet powered pursuit boat used to quickly engage vessels for boardings and routine inspections.

Tracking Drug Smugglers And Unauthorized Migrants With The Coast Guard In Miami

What It Takes To Survive Coast Guard Boot Camp

We spent four days inside the United States Coast Guard’s intense, eight-week basic training program in Cape May, New Jersey. Coast Guard recruits undergo an intense journey that’s heavy on both academic and physical challenges. What sets it apart are the brutal “smoke sessions,” where recruits are disciplined as a group for mistakes made by individuals in their respective companies. We were embedded at Training Center Cape May for four days, allowing us to see different companies at various stages of the program, culminating with the emotional graduation ceremony on the Friday of week eight.
