In mid-February, the president of the National Border Patrol Museum's board of directors said protesters vandalized multiple exhibits.  "Today, a group of protesters invaded the Border Patrol Museum and defaced all of our exhibits including our sacred Memorial Room," David Ham wrote on Facebook. "Efforts to prosecute them will be pursued once damage is assessed. This angers me greatly."

The Facebook group, "Tornillo: the Occupation" livestreamed the protest at the museum that day.  "It was an act of civil disobedience done because we believe there is a humanitarian crisis and human rights violations being perpetuated by a corrupt and broken immigration system," said Elizabeth Vega, one of the organizers.

Vega denied vandalizing the museum, but she said the group placed stickers of Jakelin Caal and Felipe Gomez Alonzo, children who died in the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol.
