US border patrols ordered to limit shootings

US Border Patrol agents shine headlights along the US-Mexico border fence while searching for footprints on November 15, 2013 in Calexico, CaliforniaBorder Patrol Chief Michael Fisher ordered customs and border agents not to shoot at vehicles when their occupants are fleeing and also barred officials from placing themselves in the path of a vehicle or using their body to block its path. The new rules were listed in a four-page memorandum on the use of lethal force on the US borders with Mexico, chiefly, and Canada, following a special commission that investigated the use of firearms. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, who took office in December, had ordered the Border Patrol to revise its directives on the use of lethal force against unarmed civilians along the borders.
