Is it correct that LASD deputies and LAPD officers get more pay than Border Patrol Agents?
According to their pages they LASD and LAPD get payed higher entry level than Border Patrol agents? Does this apply with pay increases and promotions? do LASD and LAPD careers get more money than border patrol? Will a job as border patrol help you get a job in either LASD or LAPD? or should it be the other way around?

LASD LAPD SFPD Chicago PD, most larger modern departments and those of richer suburbs get paid more than Border, no matter where you are assigned (cost of living allowances apply to all Fed LE by location).
With higher GS rating comes more money but with promotion also comes more money with any police department.
"Will a job as border patrol help you get a job in either LASD or LAPD? or should it be the other way around?"
Not especially except that background check, if you make it that far, is a little faster since you have a specific work history with a organization that also does a good background check.
The Feds do have better benefits at full retirement than any police department.

Look at the size of the budget sending for LA alone almost a national debt by itself.
