  • Thank You to Chief Vitiello

    The National Border Patrol Council would like to thank Chief Vitiello for all the hard work he's done for and on behalf of the Agents and Agency. Understanding that there was a need for a stable life outside of work and recognizing best practices within the industry, Chief Vitiello, even though he faced opposition, decided to provide a stable work and home life for agents by agreeing to a Bid-For-Shift MOU for all of the Texas Border Patrol Sectors - El Paso, Big Bend, Del Rio, Laredo, and the Rio Grande Valley.

  • Recent Actions by CBP Nurses in DOL OWCP cases have come into question.

    Do you have to work with an OWCP or CBP Nurse, if you are injured on the job and have an OWCP claim?

    Recent actions by CBP nurses, in Injured Employees DOL OWCP cases, have come into question.

    Many injured employees may find a contracted nursing service heavily involved in their workers' compensation claim. Injured workers often have questions about the scope and roles of the contracted nurses. Below you will find a description and discussion of the two types of nurses that may be assigned to a claim, OWCP contracted nurses, and employing agency contracted nurses. Each has their own unique role in the return to work effort.

  • Lost Wages Related to OWCP Cases

    The NBPC has been made aware that injured employees may have been improperly paid for absences under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA). If you received payment due to work injury related absences, change of position due to the injury, or a scheduled award, you may have been paid improperly. In cases seen so far, payments failed to properly calculate shift and other premiums including night differential, Sunday pay, Sunday night differential, Holiday pay and AUO/BPAPRA. This could be a substantial amount of unpaid money due to injured employees. Lost wages can be claimed even if you are retired, separated from Service, or have changed positions. There is no time limit to request correction and payment of lost wages.

    If you are a bargaining unit member and believe that you have been paid improperly under the FECA for any amount of compensable time, please contact Jonathan Perkins (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). In your email, you must provide:

    • OWCP case number
    • Date of injury
    • Date of birth
    • PDF of Earnings and Leave Statements from the date of injury back 12 months
    • Dates/time missed from work due to the injury
    • if you have your pay stubs from DOL OWCP that would be beneficial as well).

    Upon review, if it is determined that you were paid improperly, step by step instructions and a template memo can be provided to support your claim.

  • Border Patrol agent Killed in Vehicle Accident

    It is with a heavy heart, and deep sadness, that we report the loss of one of our Border Patrol agents. This agent was stationed in the Big Bend Sector and was killed in an automobile accident early this morning. Our thoughts and prayer are with his family.

    This tragedy is a reminder that danger often accompanies this profession we have chosen. We hope his family can find comfort in knowing he kept our nation and our communities safe. Please remember him in your prayers and hug your family a little tighter tonight, as we never know when our end of shift could come.

  • NBPC Statement on Colorado Primary

    In our March 30th endorsement statement of Donald J. Trump, we, the National Border Patrol Council called upon the American people to stand with border patrol agents in support of Mr. Trump and his pledge to end illegal immigration. We fully expected that the will of the American electorate, whatever they decided in this primary, would be upheld. It is now clear that voters are being disenfranchised in order to protect established interests.

    With the cancelation of the election in Colorado, question voters need to be asking, is “Does the party work for the people or do people work for the party?” The Republican Party has found a brand new to demonstrate that voice of the people will only be heard if it can be controlled. Once again, the will of the public - who have pleaded for immigration enforcement - is being overridden by special interests with agendas. We see the same thing happening across the country, where delegates won by Mr. Trump - through a popular recorded vote - have made secret arrangements to support other candidates, thwarting the will of the millions of voters they collectively are supposed to represent. This is insidious.

    I am calling today on the Republican Party to promise free, fair and open elections in America. All candidates should join in this demand. Elections should mean that the people - not party insiders - choose the nominee. We will never secure our immigration system unless the raw will of the American people is imposed through the ballot box. Clearly, politicians and special interests will continue to betray America's interests if they are left to their own devices.

  • Response to NY Times Op-Ed Piece

    As President of the National Border Patrol Council, the union that represents over 16,500 Border Patrol Agents, I take issue with the editorial published April 5th in reaction to the union’s endorsement of Donald Trump.

    As someone who has been involved in border protection for over 18 years, I can tell you the border is not secure and the situation is getting worse. Apprehensions are only one factor that needs to be considered. The fact that the editorial board chose to cherry pick one statistic is not only inaccurate - it is bad journalism.

  • National Border Patrol Council Endorses Donald Trump for President

    The National Border Patrol Council is the official organization representing our nation’s Border Patrol Agents. We represent 16,500 agents who selflessly serve this country in an environment where our own political leaders try to keep us from doing our jobs.

    The NBPC has had a longstanding practice of not endorsing presidential candidates in the primaries. We will not, however, shy away from voicing our opinions as it pertains to border security and the men and women of the United States Border Patrol. As such, we are breaking with our past practice and giving our first-ever endorsement in a presidential primary. We think it is that important: if we do not secure our borders, American communities will continue to suffer at the hands of gangs, cartels and violent criminals preying on the innocent. The lives and security of the American people are at stake, and the National Border Patrol Council will not sit on the sidelines.
