Feds in Ajo for Border Patrol home cost audit
We've been directing attention to this unbelievable waste of money with our BorderInc. campaign. This is only a small instance of the massive waste that is border militarization and we're rooting that CBP learns a lesson here.

AJO — Following an uproar by residents and some members of Congress, the Department of Homeland Security has opened an investigation into whether $15 million in tax dollars to build housing for Border Patrol agents here was improperly spent.
As part of the probe, auditors from Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General traveled to Ajo, a former mining town in southwestern Arizona, and spent the day Thursday interviewing residents, real-estate agents and Customs and Border Protection officials.
