Investigative reporter Ethan Barton of The Daily Caller talks about the killing of ICE Agent Jaime Zapata and the wounding of his partner Victor Avila in 2011 when they were attacked by members of the Los Zetas cartel. The DOJ Inspector General reports that the gun smugglers were largely ignored until the incident. The BATFE had many opportunities to seize their guns, but didn't.
