    National Border Patrol Council Endorses Colonel Doug Applegate over Rep. Darrell Issa.

    Washington DC (October 15, 2016)

    The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) in concurrence with Local 1613 are proud to endorse Colonel Doug Applegate for Congress. Over the years we've seen a deterioration in the relationship between Democrats and Republicans and a complete unwillingness to work together for the betterment of this great nation, and we the American Public are the losers. Darrell Issa has been at the forefront of the

  • What to do when injured at work.

    Injured employees throughout the nation have experienced denials of their workers' compensation claims, denial of essential medical treatments, and lost wages due to denied compensation claims. In many instances, these injured workers were told by their medical providers that the doctor's office would "take care of everything" for them, only to find themselves with large unpaid medical bills and no assistance following the denial of their claim. There are numerous wellness centers and treatment facilities that cater specifically and only to injured federal employees, marketing themselves as a "one-stop-shop" for dealing with OWCP.

    However, federal workers' compensation fraud is unfortunately

  • What is COP and How is it Calculated?

    Following a traumatic injury, one of the first concerns for an injured employee and their family is compensation. The Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA) has a provision known as Continuation of Pay (COP) which requires that the employing agency must continue the injured employee's regular pay during any period of work-related disability, up to a maximum of 45 calendar days. The agency, not OWCP, pays COP. Unlike wage loss benefits, COP is subject to taxes and all other payroll deductions that are made from regular income.

    The agency must continue the pay of an injured employee, who is eligible for

  • Clarification to Statements Made During Trump Press Conference

    The NBPC has an internal email from the United States Citizen and Immigration Service (USCIS) showing that extra overtime is being provided to employees to process as many applications for citizenship as possible prior to November 8.

    The NBPC also has text messages from upper level managers telling us that criminal prosecution cases are being put on hold in order for judges to adjudicate these applications. Historically, we have seen criminal background checks curtailed in situations like this, thus allowing some criminals to gain United States citizenship.

    We are also experiencing a new surge of illegal immigration along the Southern

  • NBPC Statement on Breitbart's Terrorist Encounters Report

    Yesterday morning, Breitbart reported that leaked FBI documents “reveal that 7,712 terrorist encounters occurred within the United States in one year and that many of those encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border.” Fox News is also reporting that according to a DHS report, a person attempting to enter the US illegally will have a 51.6% chance of successfully evading apprehension. No one should be surprised by these numbers. For years now, we have been saying this to anyone who will listen.

    Our agents have testified to Congress that DHS and CBP have inflated the apprehension rate and minimized the arrests
