The National Border Patrol Council does not condone corruption by Border Patrol agents nor the abuse of illegal aliens. Those who commit these crimes do not deserve to have the honor of being U.S. Border Patrol agents.
In typical Customs and Border Protection fashion however, they are throwing numbers at a problem by calling for the hiring of 350 Internal Affairs investigators. The National Border Patrol Council sees this recommendation as premature and calls on CBP to review its internal investigation capabilities. Overlapping areas of responsibility need to be eliminated, integrity issues amongst investigators eliminated, and clear, concise guidance given to all employees on how investigations will be used.
