Feds to Spend $500,000 for New Art at Customs and Border Protection Facility in San Diego

For the past few years Customs and Border Protection has seen a marked decrease in budgetary requests and appropriations when it comes to employee salaries.  The start of sequestration saw the first ever across-the-board decrease in the amount of Administratively Uncontrollable Overtime (AUO) for Border Patrol agents.  This cut resulted in a decrease in manpower in the field, equivalent to 1,200 agents, during the shift changes which have always been the most vulnerable times.  

Updated

Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega, Jr. was fishing with relatives when two men attempted to rob them, opening fire on Vega and his family. Vega was shot and killed, leaving behind his wife and three children.

In lieu of flowers, the family of Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega, Jr. requests that donations be made to:

Javier Vega, Jr. Memorial Fund at Rio Bank, P.O. Box 4169, McAllen, Texas 78502 (Routing Number 114915447 / Account Number 4081153).

The rumor that the Ajo Border Patrol Station has had Administratively Uncontrollable Overtime (AUO) decertified is false.  An email put out by management restricted the use of AUO at the Ajo station, but has been rescinded pending the review of AUO by Customs and Border Protection.

As of this time the only station that has had AUO decertified is the Grand Marais Border Patrol Station.
