Federal officials botched the planning of a $15 million outpost in New Mexico for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and Border Patrol agents, leading to more than a year of delays, the Associated Press reports.
Customs and Border Patrol agents will continue to work out of trailers in Antelope Wells, where the outpost was expected to be completed around this time last year, according to the AP.
To blame is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which didn’t outfit the post with nearly enough power, the AP wrote.
