Report: Border Patrol Ignores Complaints Against Agents

by Wochit 1:00 mins

The Border Patrol agent assaulted her after she crossed into Texas' Rio Grande Valley from Mexico, the woman said, and she insisted on filing a complaint . She did so on May 20, 2009. Nearly three years later, the investigation of that complaint by Customs and Border Protection's Office of Internal Affairs was "still pending," according to CBP documents. Her case was anything but unique. Out of 809 complaints of abuse filed against Border Patrol agents from January 2009 to January 2012, only 13 resulted in any kind of action by the CBP. Two complaints led to court action and one more to an agent's suspension. Six resulted in "counseling," according to documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests by the American Immigration Council, a Washington, D.C.-based immigrant-advocacy group.
