Latest Pay Reform Documents

To avoid any confusion or misinformation on the Border Patrol Pay Reform Act, we are providing the following document.  

Below is the Senate Bill that was proposed at markup. This is not the final version that passed the committee but it is the Amendment in the form of a substitute that was submitted. The final language that passed committee along with this has not been written and is not available in text.  The other change is a 2nd degree amendment submitted by Senator Tester that superseded the amendment submitted by Dr. Coburn. The 2nd degree amendment affects HQ, the academy, and admin positions but does not affect field agents.  When the text becomes available, we'll post it.

Update on TSA Allowing Illegal Aliens to Fly with NTAs

It is our understanding that on July 11, 2014 at 11PM local time, TSA employees at the Laredo International Airport notified Border Patrol agents that they had received an email with instructions to no longer allow illegal aliens to fly commercially using an I-862 as their sole form of identification.  The TSA employees stated that illegal aliens would be allowed to fly using an I-862 accompanied by a foreign passport or foreign ID.

This malfeasance had been occuring for several weeks putting numerous commercial flights at risk.  Only after media attention was brought to bear did the federal government take action to correct it, after it was repeatedly denied by the TSA spokesperson.  As of this posting no one in the federal government has publicly admitted that this was occuring or that the situation has been remedied.

These types of incidents should never happen in the first place.  TSA exists because in 2001, 19 people exploited our immigration system and then brought terror to American cities via our commercial transportation system.  Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it.
