NBPC has received information from very good sources that sometime this week, and possibly as early as today, DHS will notify OBP that the use of AUO for managers at HQ, the Situation Room and all agents at the Academy and Asset Forfeiture will no longer be allowed. These were the specific areas most recently investigated by OSC, but OSC is continuing and expanding their investigation into Sector and Station level use of AUO.

•    DHS will also notify ERO and AMO that AUO is no longer allowed for their components (they were also named in the OSC report).  DHS will give OBP, ERO and AMO a deadline, presumably 180 days, to implement this change.

•    The NBPC is concerned about this knee jerk reaction by DHS. We feel it will cause irreparable harm to border security and the Border Patrol.  The President of the United States will make his State of the Union address tonight and one of the topics he discusses will undoubtedly be “Immigration Reform”. But while he’s laying out the need for “reform”, our borders continue to come under attack by this Administration, lawmakers, and the organized crime cartels who control almost all the illegal activity on the United States border.

•    The Senate passed their version of Immigration Reform, which calls for 20,000 new Border Patrol agents. But we’re not allowing our agents to work the number of hours now that are required to secure the border. This AUO purge that appears to be coming is going to further handcuff agents and destroy morale in this Agency. So the question is, what is more important to the American people, amnesty for illegal aliens or real border security? Amnesty seems to have all the steam, and real border security continues to take a beating at the hands of politicians and bureaucrats with political agendas to pursue. Simply disgraceful.
