U.S. Border Patrol, Polygraphs, and the Anti-Border Corruption Act of 2010

Ever since the Anti-Border Corruption Act of 2010 was signed into law in January, many agents have been under the impression that all current Border Patrol agents would have to undergo a polygraph. That is not true. Under the new law, all applicants will have to undergo a polygraph, along with the standard background investigation, before they will be offered employment with CBP.

VRP Memorandum of Agreement added to the site

The VRP Memorandum of Agreement between the National Border Patrol Council and CBP has been added to the site. If you have questions about how agents get selected for a transfer, this is the document you should read. You can find it under the Resources tab in the main menu, or click the link below.

The CBP Push For Border Patrol Conversion to LEAP

On February 8, 2011, representatives from AFGE-NBPC Local 2366 met with staff from both Senators for the state of Texas to express their concern about the possible conversion from the current Administratively Uncontrollable Overtime (AUO) system employed by the Border Patrol to a corrupted version of Law Enforcement Availability Pay (LEAP).

Support Your Fellow Union Brothers in the NFL Players Association


Did you know that both the National Border Patrol Council and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA, the labor union representing NFL players) are part of the same organization? That organization is the AFL-CIO, and your union brothers, the members of the NFLPA, need your help. As you may have read in the press, NFL team owners have been strategizing for a lockout of the players when the current collective bargaining agreement (CBA) expires this March. The owners opted out of the current CBA early, and even after numerous bargaining sessions, they only tell the players that the current deal “isn’t working for them.” They have asked for approximately $1 billion back from the players, but not one team claims that it has lost money, even in the worst economic recession since the Great Depression.
