A border patrol agent may become famous to other border patrol agents, but that's about it. A trip down to the Border Patrol Museum can open your eyes to the many "famous" agents who have worked hard to protect U.S. borders. One of these agents, Don Chuy, is a legend within the law enforcement world. Chuy's ability to work his way into Mexican cartels allowed him to take down huge drug rings. During his career, Chuy confiscated $57 million worth of drugs. Confiscate $58 million worth of drugs and you may be able to pass up Mr. Chuy in the border patrol history books.
