Border patrol agent accused of harassing mother of migrant child


A U.S. Border Patrol agent in Clint is accused of using Facebook to harass an undocumented Guatemalan woman living in California whose son was in the custody of the Border Patrol station in which he worked.

According to a report by The Washington Post, later picked up by KFOX 14 in El Paso, the agent allegedly sent the woman messages and asked her to watch a video of him masturbating. Neither the woman, her 12-year-old son, nor the agent was named in the story.

The woman filed a complaint with U.S. Customs and Border Protection in April, according to the story. The Post reported that the agent has not been charged with a crime. 

The agency told CNN it is looking into the complaint and could not comment on an ongoing investigation. “The vast majority of CBP employees are dedicated, honest, compassionate and fair professionals. This alleged conduct is not in line with our code of conduct and will not be tolerated,” the agency statement said.
