Description

Dozens of U.S. border agents have been caught in recent years illegally smuggling weapons, drugs, or people into the United States. Melissa del Bosque and Patrick Michels investigate why so few of them have been disciplined or punished. In their mindboggling tale of broken accountability at the Department of Homeland Security, Michels and del Bosque find that a broken chain of command, turf wars, grueling caseloads, and a lack of internal accountability at the DHS Office of Inspector General have allowed potentially corrupt agents to remain employed for years on our nation's border with Mexico.
