Report Concludes Border Patrol’s Internal “Discipline System Is Broken”

Border Patrol’s system for cracking down on abuse by agents and officers is seriously flawed and rarely deters criminal misconduct, according to an independent task force.

The Homeland Security Advisory Council, which commissioned the study, is expected to receive the 49-page final report today.

The task force contended that corrupt Border Patrol agents “pose a national security threat” because they are failing to protect the country from international terrorism, The Los Angeles Times reports. 

Cartels and other groups “attempt to target, recruit and corrupt law enforcement personnel who then can facilitate the smuggling of drugs and people and other criminal activity,” the report states. “Such corrupt officials can assist the cartels by providing intelligence and facilitating the movement of large amounts of contraband across our borders and into our country.”

An average investigation into serious misconduct takes more than a year and a half, which the report states is “far too long to be an effective deterrent.”

The report concluded, the “discipline system is broken.”
