Few Border Patrol Agents Are Ever Disciplined for Using Deadly Or Questionable Force

Border Patrol agents rarely face repercussions for using deadly force, even when the shootings are questionable, the Arizona Republic reports.

At least 42 people, including 13 Americans, have been killed by on-duty Border Patrol agents and CBP officers since 2005.

The deaths range from justifiable to highly questionable, the Republic wrote.

Although CBP official insist agents are disciplined when they use excessive force, they won’t provide any details.

What’s concerning, according to the newspaper, is that none of the 42 deaths appears to have yielded consequences for offenders.
