Local law enforcement officials voice fears over border patrol station closings. CNN's Ed Lavandera reports.
Nine Border Patrol stations to close; 41 agents to move to posts closer to border
Nine Border Patrol stations will be closed within the next six months to move 41 agents closer to the southern and northern borders, according to a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
CBP Spokesman Bill Brooks said the interior stations that will be shut are in some instances hundreds of miles from a border. He said the decision is in keeping with a strategy to use resources wisely and "increasingly concentrate our resources on the border."
