Weapons will be replaced by non-lethal die markers, similar to paintball guns.

 

Agents to Be Disarmed in Border Areas

 

Speaking at a Washington, DC press conference, Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano stated that stripping the Border Patrol of lethal weapons reflects the “long-stated objective of this Adminstration to value human life over all other lesser considerations.” Napolitano stressed that the Border Patrol would not be required to give up all its firearms. The Patrol would still maintain pistols, rifles, and shotguns in “secure lock-ups” removed from the “immediate border area”.

 

The goal of the policy shift, Napolitano stated, is to eliminate the risk of accidental or unintentional injury to “wayward travelers and undocumented citizens”. Napolitano denied that confiscation of Border Patrol Agents’ firearms was a response to “trigger-happy men in green”. Napolitano stated: “I have the greatest faith in our men and women in the Border force”, adding that “we are now giving those Agents viable non-lethal technologies with which they can carry out their duties”.

Unfortunately it will be 'easier' for them to get health care, driver's licenses, social benefits, and voting ballots... :P

Based on her performance and comments on other issues thus far, it seemed plausible.

 

Just Tuesday she said “There is a perception that the border is worse now than it ever has been. That is wrong. The border is better now than it ever has been.” Apparently all the kidnappings in Phoenix and the 229 drug killings in Ciudad Jaurez in February are just business as usual.

 

And there's all the inter-agency cooperation and info sharing with "Operation Gunwalker" a.k.a. "Fast & Furious" => http://www.publicintegrity.org/articles/entry/2976/
