Immigration and Customs Enforcement
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has a problem with abusive practices, both in border communities and throughout the country. We need to create accountability within CBP and establish robust and independent external oversight. Reform must include downsizing the “mini industrial complex” in border communities, which exists despite border communities’ exceptional safety and a 40-year low in migrant apprehensions. It should also contain measures to ensure CBP’s full compliance with national and international legal standards.
