WASHINGTON — REP. LORETTA SANCHEZ (D-Calif) expressed concern Wednesday about  the need for better cooperation between  DEA and border agencies to fight drug cartels.

Responding to a Government Accountability Office report, the California Congresswoman said: 
“A recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report highlighting the lack of interagency cooperation between our leading border and drug enforcement agencies is concerning. Coordination and cooperation between DEA, ICE, and CBP is crucial to defeating drug cartel organizations operating near our southern border and I echo the GAO’s call for the Attorney General and Secretary of Homeland Security to improve and enhance effectiveness in interagency partnerships.

“As the Chairwoman of Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border, Maritime and Global Counterterrorism, I will continue to monitor the relationships between these agencies and consult with the appropriate officials. An effective, transparent partnership between DEA, ICE, and CBP is crucial to America’s safety and security.”
