The Obama War on the Border Patrol continues. In this case, the Regime has appointed a new Assistant Commissoner to head U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Internal Affairs (OIA), Matthew Klein. Disturbingly Klein comes from one of the worst big city police department, the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department (MPDC) with a long history of incompetence, affirmative action, corruption, and hiring criminals. No wonder a MPDC veteran has been appointed by Barack Hussein Obama and Jeh Johnson to rein in Border Patrol Agents and assure that those agents are not allowed to do their job. And Klein is being openly touted by advocates for illegal aliens. Klein will not be a new sheriff, cleaning things up, but a commissar like Felix Dzerzhinsky, Genrikh Yagoda, and Lavrentiy Beria.

A new sheriff is coming to clean up U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the nation's largest law enforcement agency.
Matthew Klein twice headed internal affairs for the police department in Washington, D.C., and helped it comply with Justice Department orders in the early 2000s to improve its policies on deadly force.
An avid runner at 50, the slim ex-street cop with salt-and-pepper hair will be sworn in Wednesday to perform the same job at Customs and Border Protection.
But the task will be far tougher at a federal agency that, according to a scathing Homeland Security Department report last month, is plagued by systemic corruption and chronically slow investigations. Customs and Border Protection has 44,000 armed officers, and its relatively small internal affairs office has been overwhelmed.
In an interview, Klein said he hoped to bring "a completely different perspective" to help the agency, and the Border Patrol under it, and improve a much-criticized reputation for abuse, violence and lack of transparency.
The Homeland Security report recommended more than doubling the 207 internal affairs investigators. Klein said he wanted them to focus on ferreting out internal corruption and misconduct, including exposing unjustified shootings by Border Patrol agents.
Interestingly enough, CBP has already determined that all those alleged controversial shootings were justified.
While there is a corruption problem at CBP, it is a problem with its origin in Hispanic culture, which can easily be solved by hiring more white men, plenty of whom are available as the military downsizes.
Even worse, CBP OIA has apparently been having problems of its own with professionalism, honesty, and conducting Queen of Hearts investigations; punishment first, investigation later. Stay tuned as the situation develops.
