Why the heck would you need someone the same ‘gender identity’ to transport an illegal alien? And where will you find the transgender and pansexual Border agents this rule could potentially require?
Border Patrol agents and others operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) must now consider not only the sex of the criminal they are detaining, but the “gender identity” of the individual and how they feel and identify. The terms “illegal alien” or even “illegal immigrant” do not appear at all in a new 31-page instruction document. The new rules were published by CBP and according to the agency, “includes language on gender identity, which was not previously included in the individual component policies. Specifically, whenever feasible, officers and agents who conduct a search or are present at a medical examination must be of the same gender, gender identity, or declared gender as the individual being searched.”
A few highlights from the October 2015 National Standards on Transport, Escort, Detention, and Search are listed below:
Section 2.6: Ground Transportation and Escort Standards
Gender of Transporting/Escorting Officer/Agent
Whenever operationally feasible, transport/escort must be conducted by two officers/agents with at least one being of the same gender or gender identity as the detainee(s)
