Border Patrol Needs Full Staffing Not National Guard

Pay Reform Bill Will Save Taxpayers Millions and Put More Boots On The Ground

The National Border Patrol Council, the union for Border Patrol Agents, is urging Congress to pass a crucial amendment to H.R. 5230 that will increase border security. 

Council President, Brandon Judd says, “At this time of critical need, we are not fully staffed at the border. Currently, federal restrictions prevent us from doing the job we are trained to do.  We must be able to use the resources we have to fulfill our mission of protecting the borders. The Pay Reform legislation introduced by Senator Jon Tester (D-Montana), Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), and Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) gives us the ability to get our full complement of agents in the field.”

NBPC Statement on American Immigration Council Study

The National Border Patrol Council, representing 17,000 United States Border Patrol agents, takes issue with the study conducted by the American Immigration Council alleging that Border Patrol agents are abusing illegal aliens and that Customs and Border Protection is turning a blind eye.

The National Border Patrol Council does not condone the abuse of illegal aliens, in any form. Border Patrol agents work every day to protect this nation’s borders.  This same work includes rescuing illegal aliens, treating their injuries, and providing them food and shelter in numbers far beyond what any other aid group has ever accomplished for illegal aliens.  While foreign governments and cartels will abuse, rob, injure, and kill illegal aliens headed to the United States, those that make it across the border know that even if they are caught by the Border Patrol they will be cared for and returned to their native country alive and fed.  This is not to say there are not those within our ranks that have committed crimes against illegal aliens.  Those crimes should be thoroughly investigated and if found guilty, the criminals punished.
