Border Patrol Agent Settles Whistleblower Retaliation Claim Over Comments About Port Angeles Station

A Border Patrol agent who said he and his family were subjected to “ugly harassment” by federal officials in retaliation for complaining that the Port Angeles station is wasting resources reached a settlement with the agency, the Associated Press reports [2].

Christian Sanchez settled with Border Patrol over his whistleblower retaliation claim during mediation by the Office of Special Counsel, the AP reported.

Border Patrol officials declined to divulge details of the settlement, saying the terms were confidential.

Sanchez apparently ruffled feathers when he told the Sunlight Foundation Advisory Committee on Transparency in July 2011 that the Port Angeles station is a “black hole” with “no purpose, no mission.”
