Border Patrol not able to maintain equipment at crucial posts
Multiple U.S. Customs and Border Protection bases near the Mexico border have “inoperable” security cameras and other serious security gaps, according to a new federal watchdog report.This is more evidence of poor management by the Obama administration which does not make border protection a priority,
The Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General found four border posts where agents live and work for a week at a time that have inoperable cameras, which increases their chances of suffering a security breach.
Some posts also have inadequate access controls, and CBP doesn’t conduct consistent security inspections of the facilities.
“If agents cannot perform this task, the FOB (forward operating base) is more vulnerable to a security breach,” the report said.
