The U.S. Senate failed to pass a Continuing Resolution to fund the Government past midnight, so at 12:00 am (EST), the Government will go into a shutdown, the first since 2013.

Border Patrol agents can expect to receive a Notice for Exempt Employee notifying them that they are considered exempt from a furlough and are required to report to work as scheduled. Those employees considered non-essential should expect to receive furlough notices.

Although there is no guarantee of backpay, there has never been a shutdown in which employees were not paid retroactively. We remain hopeful that Congress will work through the weekend in order to fund the Government prior to Monday.

We will keep you informed of developments.

Operational Mobility selections will start going out via email in the next several days. There are many selection notices which will need to be sent, so it could possibly take a few days to notify everyone.

Agents selected for the Operational Mobility will have to respond within 72 hours. Agents should monitor their work email for the notification.

During a meeting yesterday with Congressional leaders, President Trump once again acknowledged that Border Patrol Agents endorsed him for President of the United States of America.

Border Patrol agents endorsed President Trump through the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). The NBPC is the official organization representing our nation’s Border Patrol agents.

The meeting was held at the White House to discuss immigration and border security issues.

President Trump reminded Congressional leaders that he stays in touch with Border Patrol agents to learn more about what is needed to secure the border.

Thank you President Trump for supporting Border Patrol agents and support staff.

The NBPC has partnered with Ammo Inc. to provide members with the opportunity to purchase ammunition at a discounted rate.

Ammo Inc. set up a special website that NBPC members can access to compare prices and purchase ammunition. The individual member will be responsible for payment upon ordering the ammunition.

This benefit will only be available to NBPC members. Membership will be verified for each order.

The Ammo Inc. main website can be accessed at http://www.ammo-inc.com and the NBPC member, specific website will be available soon.

Please contact a member of your Local Executive Board for instructions on accessing the NBPC Members Only, Ammo Inc. website.
