Rep. Owens opposes border cuts

Posted: Updated:

New York's Congressman Bill Owens is demanding answers from Customs and Border Protection.

Owens says he's concerned about the government's plan to potentially cut 25 jobs from the Plattsburgh Air Branch within the next 90 days. He says he learned employees who do not voluntarily accept new posts along the southwestern border will be relocated or terminated.

Owens calls the move worrisome and says it threatens northern border security.
