Immigrants In El Paso Were Held In Dangerously Overcrowded, Standing Room–Only Cells
> At a processing center in El Paso, the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) found that facility didn’t have the capacity to hold the hundreds of people inside. El Paso del Norte Processing Center’s maximum capacity is 125 detainees, but on May 7 and 8, Border Patrol’s custody logs showed there were about 750 and 900 detainees, respectively, which is counter to the agency’s standards.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol spent millions on field radios that don't work |
"Despite the Department of Homeland Security's $945 million investment in radios for its border patrol agents, spotty coverage and inadequate training still hinders the agency's attempts to secure the southwestern border. Some agents even told congressional investigators that radio communications worsened after DHS updated the system, according to a Government Accountability Office report."
