It IS a bad situation and I dont think he should be in jail.
So long as you realize State Dept and US Border Patrol are two separate agencies and State does not directly or indirectly train Border Patrol agents. State Dept's only role in this would be to mediate with the Mexican Govt to secure the release of the individual.
