Administration memo tells border agents they can release drunk drivers
FEBRUARY 18, 2015
Judicial Watch recently obtained a memo DHS issued to Customs and Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Arizona sector urging them to release drunk drivers. DHS argues these agents do not have to intervene in state crimes and are least liable for being sued if they do not arrest these drivers. However, the union that represents these agents has said the agents will not follow the suggestions of this memo. Read more about this memo from Judicial Watch here.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, offered some commentary on this matter as well, as quoted in this article:
“Families across America are now at risk on the roads, as President Obama and his appointees at the Department of Homeland Security have given illegal aliens a license to drive drunk,” he said.
