1613border

The National Border Patrol Council and Local 1613 continue to push for the resources and Agents needed to secure the border. A comprehensive package with the funding of the wall that includes increased manpower, pay parity (FLSA), vehicles, roads, radios and cameras is needed. This funding should be allocated to the Border Patrol directly. Changes also need to be made to the hiring process and the overall structure of CBP. Border Patrol Agents also need a better career ladder and actions must be taken to mitigate the high attrition rates. These are a few of the things that need to be addressed going forward. 

NBPC Local 1613 is cautiously optimistic by the statements of Attorney Genreal Sessions and DHS Secretary Kelly. We encourage them to continue beyond the words and ensure the necessary actions are taken to give the Border Patrol the resources needed to truly secure the border.
