SOUTHWEST BORDER: CBP Needs to Increase Oversight of Funds, Medical Care, and Reporting of Deaths
"Three children died in U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s custody in fiscal year 2019, prompting questions about medical care in the agency’s southwest border facilities.
CBP developed health screening policies and received emergency funds to enhance detainees’ medical care. But CBP hasn’t consistently overseen these policies, so some children were not given health screenings as intended. Further, CBP violated appropriations law by using some of these funds for items such as its canine program. CBP also lacks reliable data on deaths and didn’t report this data to Congress as directed.
We made 10 recommendations to address these issues."
