Local 226 Declares "No Confidence" in Beecher Falls Patrol Agent in Charge

Local 2266 and the Bargaining Unit Agents of the Beecher Falls Border Patrol Station are making a declaration of NO CONFIDENCE in the ability of Paul Kuhn, the Patrol Agent in Charge (PAIC) of the Beecher Falls Border Patrol Station, to competently and efficiently carry out his duties and lead our agents. Mr. Kuhn’s decisions and policies have greatly reduced the effectiveness of the bargaining members of the station. These actions have reduced the overall security of the United States of America.


A Sincere Thank You to Mercury One

The National Border Patrol Council wishes to thank Glenn Beck and Mercury One for the recent contribution to the Border Patrol Agents Legal Defense and Relief Fund.  Their generous contribution will go towards helping Border Patrol agents in need and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

We appreciate greatly that Mr. Beck and Mercury One have recognized the hard work and sefless dedication of Border Patrol agents nationwide.  It is good to know that there are those willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with Border Patrol agents and to assist in "Protecting Those Who Protect Our Borders."

Update on TSA Allowing Illegal Aliens to Fly with NTAs

It is our understanding that on July 11, 2014 at 11PM local time, TSA employees at the Laredo International Airport notified Border Patrol agents that they had received an email with instructions to no longer allow illegal aliens to fly commercially using an I-862 as their sole form of identification.  The TSA employees stated that illegal aliens would be allowed to fly using an I-862 accompanied by a foreign passport or foreign ID.

This malfeasance had been occuring for several weeks putting numerous commercial flights at risk.  Only after media attention was brought to bear did the federal government take action to correct it, after it was repeatedly denied by the TSA spokesperson.  As of this posting no one in the federal government has publicly admitted that this was occuring or that the situation has been remedied.

These types of incidents should never happen in the first place.  TSA exists because in 2001, 19 people exploited our immigration system and then brought terror to American cities via our commercial transportation system.  Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. 

NBPC Statement on TSA Allowing Illegal Aliens to Fly

The National Border Patrol Council was recently notified that as recently as July 9, 2014, illegal aliens, who had been processed by Border Patrol agents in the Laredo Sector, were released with an I-862, Notice to Appear, and used that document as identification to board commercial aircraft at Laredo International Airport.
