Giffords calls for Border Patrol deployment study

Posted: Updated:

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is asking for a study of how the Border Patrol decides where to send agents.

Giffords and Congressman Bennie Thompson want an independent review of deployment decisions. She says her constituents need to know resources are used effective, especially in parts of Cochise County. Giffords says legitimate and serious concerns have been raised about southern Arizonans about the Border Patrol's deployment strategies.
