Border Patrol Cracks Down on Agents’ Use of Personal Technology After Alarming Photos Turn Up

Photos that were leaked from overcrowded Border Patrol processing centers has prompted the federal agency to ban agents from using personal technology in some areas, TownHall.com reports.

The photos show children sleeping in cramped areas surrounded by chain-linked cages.

“Due to the recent unauthorized use of a personally owned electronic device in the Nogales Processing Center, the use of such devices will be restricted to locations outside of detention areas,” Lawson wrote in a June 6 memo to all employees at the Nogales station. “Effective immediately, the use of personally owned cellular phones, cameras, or recording devices in the Nogales Detention Facility and the Nogales Processing Center is strictly prohibited. All personnel working or visiting detention facilities at the Nogales Station will be required to turn off these electronic devices and store them in a locker other secure location prior to entering the detention area.”

The agency also has threatened to fire any employees responsible for leaking the photos.

“Apparently they are so ticked over these photos that they are going to fire the person that leaked them,” one source said.
