Ex-Border Patrol Union Leader Accused of Fraud
A retired president of the union representing U.S. Border Patrol Agents is accused of using hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor funds for personal use beginning in 2007, New American reports.
Terrence J. “T.J.” Bonner, who is accused of 12 counts of conspiring to commit fraud, was indicted by a federal grand jury in San Diego late last week.
Authorities said Bonner used dues-paying funds to visit a mistress in Chicago, store pornography and attend hockey games, according to New American.
“Siphoning hundreds of thousands of dollars from hard-working fellow Border Patrol agents, many of whom put their lives on the line every day to protect this country, is a particularly troubling form of corruption that must be addressed,” U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said.
