“Taking people into custody like that, it’s against the law. These people have done it and gotten away with it for so long they think nobody’s gonna ever call them on it.” It all became too much for Gilbert, Cottrell and other members of TBV. Gilbert and about 15 others quit the group in January to form the Texas Border Rescue, a “humanitarian-focused” search and rescue outfit composed primarily of former TBV members. He would use his expertise, his gear, his bravado, to save lives rather than jeopardize them. He even got Eddie Canales , a Prius-driving liberal from Corpus Christi who’s made it his life mission to render aid to the migrants passing through Brooks County, to endorse the group.
