Report: Still No Action Taken: Complaints Against Border Patrol Agents Continue to Go Unanswered

No_action_taken_thumbnail_0

Today, the American Immigration Council released Still No Action Taken: Complaints Against Border Patrol Agents Continue to Go Unanswered, which analyzes complaints records obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has a long history of violating constitutional and other rights of both immigrants and U.S. citizens. In particular, agents of the Border Patrol (a component of CBP) are known for routinely overstepping the boundaries of their authority by using excessive force, detaining people under inhumane conditions, and using coercion and misinformation to remove people from the United States.  

Not only do abuses occur with regularity, but they rarely result in any serious disciplinary action. Our analysis finds that the overwhelming majority of complaints regarding misconduct result in “no action,” revealing how little progress CBP has made over the past few years in its efforts to improve accountability.
