We thank the Administration for proposing an additional $374 million in funding for FY 2017 that will allow the Border Patrol to increase its manpower. The U.S. Border Patrol is already more than 1,700 Agents below the congressionally mandated floor of 21,370 agents and the lack of manpower is already negatively impacting Border Patrol operations. Adding an additional 5,000 agents will be a logistical challenge, but will have a tremendous impact on border security.

As long as the same Obama administration DHS and CBP "leaders" are involved, they will do everything they can to see President Trump fail in his attempts to build the wall!
We commend President Trump for recognizing that in the US Border Patrol, experience matters. We are unlike any other law enforcement agency in the world. We operate marine, land, and air units in every climate, and every environment. The previous administration's attempts to treat the Border Patrol like any law enforcement agency, resulted in leadership that was reactive and in constant crisis.
