Obama’s War On The Border Patrol Takes A Hit: Border Agents Cleared Of “Civil Rights” Complaints

The Obama Regime, in conjunction with the Treason Bar and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU),  has been waging a war on immigration law enforcement in general and against Border Patrol Agents specifically, that this writer had documented at VDare.com here and here. However, despite the concocted complaints alleging abuse of the tens of thousands of juvenile illegal aliens, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General has found that the allegations are unfounded.

Border Agents Cleared Of Civil Rights Complaints From Illegal Immigrant Children

Internal investigators have already dismissed most complaints of civil rights violations against federal agents handling the surge of illegal immigrant children on the border, the Homeland Security Department inspector general said in a new report Thursday that details near-heroic efforts agents and officers are making.

In its first report since the surge, the inspector general said agents have contracted everything from scabies and lice to chickenpox, including bringing the disease home to their own children, as they care for the unaccompanied minors. Investigators also said they saw instances of agents and officers spending their own money to buy toys, clothing and food for children and families.

Of the 116 complaints the ACLU filed, the inspector general has dismissed 78 of them. The other 38 are still under review.

Investigators said in addition to looking at the old complaints, they made 87 unannounced visits to 63 sites including border entry points, Border Patrol checkpoints, holding facilities where children are being kept, and the new facility in New Mexico specifically designed to detain illegal immigrant families.

They found no evidence of misconduct, and none of the children they randomly interviewed reported problems, the inspector general said.

Of course, the ACLU was not serious about their complaints of mistreatment of the juvenile illegal aliens.  The purpose of the complaints was not any specific misconduct, but mau-mauing the flak catchers, diverting attention from the problem, a surge of juvenile and family units of illegal aliens seeking to enter the United States to gain the benefits of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.

However, the facts just did not support the claim of the cultural Marxists. They will now move on to some other baseless allegation or frivolous claim, such as Mexican nationals have the right to throw rocks at Border Patrol Agents.
