CBP Air Interdiction Agents fly airplanes and/or helicopters to perform aviation law enforcement operations to detect, interdict and prevent acts of terrorism and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs and other contraband toward or across the borders of the United States. 

Border Patrol Agents work to prevent terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States. They also detect and prevent the smuggling and unlawful entry of undocumented aliens into the United States, and apprehend those people found to be in violation of the immigration laws. Also, due to the increase in drug smuggling operations, the Border Patrol is the primary drug-interdicting agency along the land border between the ports of entry. 

For more information, go to the CBP jobs page.
