Loss of Border Patrol Agent Juan Esparza

It is with extreme regret that the National Border Patrol Council reports the death of Border Patrol Agent Juan Esparza. Agent Esparza was traveling home after completing his shift at the Cotulla, TX Border Patrol Station, when the van he was the driver of was struck head-on by a suspected drunk driver. The passenger, a fellow Border Patrol agent, was severely injured but will survive.

Border Patrol Agent Juan Esparza was a member of the U.S. Border Patrol Academy's 858th Session, had been a Border Patrol agent for six years, and is survived by his parents.

The thoughts and prayers of Border Patrol agents nationwide are with the family of Agent Esparza and his injured partner. This loss is felt profoundly by the Border Patrol family and the millions of Americans who support our Border Patrol agents.

Response to POLITICO Article

This article is in response to the recent article “The Green Monster” written by Garrett M. Graff.

As president of the National Border Patrol Council, I have the honor of representing the hardworking, dedicated and patriotic individuals who protect our nation. I would walk through fire to protect the integrity of our 16,000-plus members. But I will never defend the indefensible.

The brutal crimes committed by a Texas-based agent, described in stomach-churning detail in “The Green Monster,” are monstrous, indeed. These heinous acts do not represent the Border Patrol, of course, and should not be used to dismiss or disparage the routine professionalism in our ranks. Wrongdoing should never be covered up, nor should it overshadow the frequent acts of altruism and heroism.

FOLLOW-UP POST TO THE VRP and ROB

What is the VRP?  On August 26, 2010, the agency and the NBPC entered into the most recent VRP agreement that continued a test program that was approved by Congress and that was intended to provide Federal Agencies and Federal Employees more move opportunities by decreasing the amount of money an agency would have to pay for relocations.  The test program expired on April 29, 2014, which also ended the negotiated VRP.
