Border Patrol Needs Full Staffing Not National Guard

Pay Reform Bill Will Save Taxpayers Millions and Put More Boots On The Ground

The National Border Patrol Council, the union for Border Patrol Agents, is urging Congress to pass a crucial amendment to H.R. 5230 that will increase border security. 

Council President, Brandon Judd says, “At this time of critical need, we are not fully staffed at the border. Currently, federal restrictions prevent us from doing the job we are trained to do.  We must be able to use the resources we have to fulfill our mission of protecting the borders. The Pay Reform legislation introduced by Senator Jon Tester (D-Montana), Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), and Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) gives us the ability to get our full complement of agents in the field.”

Sign-Up Forms For Lawsuits

Below is a link to the consent and retainer form to be party to a lawsuit that is going to be filed in federal court to recover overtime pay for unpaid work time.

Some Canine Handlers have asked if the claims in the Abad case for non-canine handlers are different and whether they should be in both cases.  If you have been a canine handler the past 3 years and continue to work as such, you only need to be in this case - the Abrego case. This case covers all of the claims being asserted in the Abad case plus claims that are unique to canine handlers such as at-home care.  Both cases cover unpaid pre-shift, post shift and gun cleaning activities. Bottom line: If you have been a canine handler throughout the period for which we are claiming damages, you do not have to join Abad as this case will cover all of your claims.

The Obama administration violated the law when it released thousands of illegal immigrants last February, more than 600 of whom had criminal records, according to an internal audit released Tuesday that blamed the problem on poor planning and bad leadership from Washington.

Compounding matters, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gave bad information to Congress about the releases, initially blaming the looming budget sequester rather than the agency's own budget pressures, the Homeland Security inspector general concluded.
