Did Border Patrol tell agents to not stop drunken drivers?

Judicial Watch broke the story that Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Arizona, have been told to not detain drunk drivers. In an internal memo, Border Patrol agents are told arresting drunk drivers would result in greater legal liability and that they are not legally required to intervene in a state crime. Meanwhile, the Border Patrol has not denied any of this. Read more about this story here.

This part of the memo, cited in the article, underscores how the Border Patrol is more concerned with not getting sued than protecting the public:

Even if state or local police ask agents to hold someone, the memo continued, “there is no duty to detain the alcohol-impaired individual. But if you do, this option can raise potential liability for the agent and the agency.”
