Twice this year Border Patrol has been involved in high-speed deadly crashes in downtown El Paso. The most recent tragedy occurred on June 25, which killed seven people, including four El Pasoans.
Border Patrol operates in communities like El Paso without any oversight, transparency or accountability. Police departments around the country have restricted high speed chases because they endanger local communities. Yet, the Border Patrol disregards our community’s safety and never face consequences for their actions.
That’s why we’re calling on the El Paso Police Department (EPPD) to conduct a robust and transparent investigation of the June 25 chase and crash. Send an urgent message to the EPPD, demanding the release of all video and audio recordings related to the incident.
