49-year-old Eugenio Pedraza, a former U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (DHS-OIG) supervisor, was found guilty in March of “conspiracy and five counts of falsifying government documents,” according to The McAllen Monitor. An indictment obtained by Breitbart Texas alleges that Pedraza, with the help of several special agents, worked to “impede, obstruct, and influence" a 2011 internal review of the DHS-OIG office.
According to the indictment, Pedraza reportedly attempted to inhibit the review of significant gaps in the DHS-OIG's investigation into numerous cases that involved Border Patrol agents assisting in the "unlawful smuggling of undocumented aliens and narcotics into the United States," through several ports-of-entry in Texas. The indictment claims that Pedraza failed to ensure that investigations assigned to his office were properly carried out.
