Former Union Boss for Border Patrol Accused of Stealing Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars

T.J. Bonner, who led the labor union for Border Patrol agents for two decades, is accused of defrauding the union out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, U-T San Diego reports.

Bonner, known for his fearless criticism over government policy, has filed numerous pretrial motions in an attempt to get the case dismissed.

For one, Bonner claims the search warrants used against him were invalid. He also says the agents who handled the probe had no authority to do so, U-T San Diego wrote.

Bonner, 59, who led the National Border Patrol Council from 1989 to 201, has pleaded not guilty to charges of wire fraud and conspiracy.

U-T San Diego reports that Bonner is accused of filing false claims for reimbursements for wages, meals and travel. In some cases, investigators said, Bonner was visiting a mistress instead of doing union work.

ACLU Lashes Out at FBI for Refusing to Release Details of Warrantless GPS Spying

The ACLU is incensed that the FBI won’t hand over details of how agents have used warrantless GPS trackers on cars to monitor suspects, Salon.com reports.

Responding to a request for public information, the FBI redacted virtually every word from the records, saying the information is privileged, Salon.com reports.

The ACLU wants to see other tracking methods used by federal agents following a Supreme Court ruling that determined GPS trackers require a search warrant. The group also wants to know how the FBI plans to retrieve GPS trackers already on cars.

“The Justice Department’s unfortunate decision leaves Americans with no clear understanding of when we will be subjected to tracking—possibly for months at a time—or whether the government will first get a warrant,” wrote Catherine Crump, an ACLU staff attorney.

Editorial: Immigration Reform Heads in More Sensible Direction

Deseret News
Editorial

Utah is deporting fewer people, and that’s a good thing.

In 2012, requests for deportation were down by 25 percent from 2011, and current trends predict a similar downturn this year. Scarce resources in the judicial system account for some of this, but there are other factors at work that suggest a more pragmatic approach to immigration going forward.

It’s worth noting that one of the reasons fewer people are being deported is that there are fewer illegal immigrants to deport. The vast majority of people who enter the country illegally are doing so to improve their personal circumstances, and the wobbly recovery has dried up the economic incentives that enticed border crossers in years past. Our immigration system ought to include avenues to accommodate those who want to cross our borders simply to seek a better life. Harsh remedies like deportation ought to be reserved for those who enter the country illegally with more nefarious purposes in mind.

Marion Barry, the former D.C. mayor who know sits on the city council, is unquestionably an interesting character.

Now add this:

U.S. News reports that Barry said he believes the FBI tried killing him on Jan. 18, 1990, when he was arrested for crack cocaine possession in a sting operation in which Barry was caught smoking crack in a hotel room with his ex-girlfriend Rasheeda Moore.

“The FBI had a mind to entrap me, also the FBI tried to kill me by having some substance that wasn’t proven to be crack,” Barry told U.S. News in a phone interview.

“They had an EMT on the spot, which is not only unusual but rare in history of the FBI,” Barry noted as he offered evidence to support his claim that the FBI attempted to kill him. “Why would they have an EMT on the scene if they weren’t trying?”

A Mexican man who says he killed U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry fabricated his claim to gain attention, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said Friday.

The FBI said in a statement that agents interviewed Gustavo Cruz-Lozano in San Antonio on Thursday after he claimed to have killed Terry during an interview with Univision News.

“During the course of the interview, Cruz-Lozano admitted to the agents that he lied about his involvement in the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in order to garner attention,” Special Agent in Charge James L. Turgal, Jr. said in the statement.
