CBP gang to disband sub-gang units accused of cover-ups in Arizona

Source: Arizona Republic

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued a memo last week announcing that Border Patrol Critical Incident Teams, which have been accused of covering up official wrongdoing, will no longer be used in the processing of critical incidents involving CBP agents starting in October. The announcement comes months after congressional Democrats urged the Government Accountability Office in a letter to investigate the use of the critical incident teams to process critical incident scenes. The letter, sent in January, was prompted by concerns from civil rights organizations that claim the units have been used to cover up incidents involving excessive violence by CBP agents.” (05/08/22)
