Javier Vega Jr. made the ultimate sacrifice upholding his oath to serve and protect.

(Washington, DC) May 13, 2015

As our nation’s law enforcement officers gather this week in Washington, D.C., to honor their 127 brothers and sisters who fell in the line of duty in 2014, there will be one name missing from the stone walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial. That name is Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega Jr.

Testimony of Chris Cabrera, on behalf of the National Border Patrol Council, in front of United States Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee March 17, 2015

"Chairman Johnson and Ranking Member Carper, thank you for providing me with the opportunity to testify on behalf of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) and the 16,500 Border Patrol Agents that it represents.

The National Border Patrol Council, the union that represents more than 16,500 Border Patrol agents, congratulates Congress for today’s passage of a “Clean Bill” to fund DHS.

But the NBPC demands Washington politicians stop playing games with Border Patrol agents’ well-being and financial security.

Politicians are quick to declare their support for the Border Patrol, said Brandon Judd, the union’s president. “But don’t just tell us you support agents,” he said. “We demand that Congress and the White House show us and stop using our agents as political pawns.”

We demand that Congress fund the Border Patrol regardless of their disagreements with the White House over immigration policy.”

Lawmakers need to protect those who protect our nation, Judd said.
