Border Patrol has absolved agents of 64 of 67 shootings, according to a recently completed review, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

The shootings, which resulted in 19 deaths, were considered justifiable use of force.

Three cases are still under investigation and involve shootings.

Charges have not resulted from any of the cases. In one case, two agents were disciplined and received oral reprimands.

“Turning the page doesn’t mean burying the past,” said Chris Rickerd, a border security expert at the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington. “There is no assurance to border residents that agents who have used excessive, improper lethal force aren’t on the job in their communities.”
