The Department of Homeland Security and its agencies, including the Border Patrol, would be subjected to greater oversight and accountability under a bill promoted by a pair of congressmen representing districts on the Mexican border, the Global Post reports.

The goal of the Border Accountability and Stakeholder Engagement Act is to create mechanism for monitoring, checking and evaluating federal agents.

The bill is expected to be introduced later this week or early next week by Republican Steve Pearce of New Mexico and Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

“Our offices receive frequent reports from our constituents and those close to them about agents’ excessive use of force and other unjustified conduct,” O’Rourke spokesman John Meza said.
