    USBP Pay Cuts

    Has anyone heard confirmation of a heavy pay cut hitting Border Patrol Agents?
    I’m hearing about a 40% cut with overtime cuts and furloughs.
    Hitting the ‘Agents’ (green, internal US) more than the ‘Officers’ (blue, border stations).

    Time to remind them you get what you pay for. Honestly, I think it's more chest-thumping than anything. Sure, their wil be some cuts, some job losses, buy the government will go on.

    Considering the rate at which we are releasing illegal immigrants, I can't see any reason to even have Border Patrol agents.

    If it was Illegal to hire them or enroll them in school and they quashed the birther law,gave them no welfare,then arrested US Citizens that broke the law by hiring them we wouldn't have an immigration problem since there would be no reason for them to come here

    I doubt that they will have pay cuts, but a hiring freeze, early retirements, forced transfers and reduced overtime will be forthcoming. This is based on comments by a relative that is an agent.

    Furloughs coming for IRS workers here. Don't expect your tax refund in a timely manner this year. Again.

    I would be suprised if over time does not get cut for at least a couple of months.

    Agreed.

    I believe that our law enforcement officers (incl. BP, Customs, etc.) are public servants if the highest order. But our gov't is bloated, and there need to be cuts. Since no one can agree exactly where, everywhere should be cut. That will likely get the attention of lawmakers through the populace they work for.

    Nailed it!

    Nothing like the idiots in congress to roll out a red carpet to welcome the moochers, thugs and criminals from other societies/countries, instead of the hard workers and contributors, like what happened around 1900-1940.

    The objective is to water down and "allow" the illegals from across the border to infiltrate our country, so that a few years from now the Feds can say, well we tried, but alas we might as well abolish the border.

    This from here;
    Definite Plan to stop the U.N. and the NWO in its tracks!
    In their 95 page preliminary document, the U.N. is spearheading not only
    the reformation of the United Nations organization but, with all nations
    automatically and INVOLUNTARILY relinquishing their sovereignty, and with all
    NATIONAL BOUNDARIES being DISSOLVED, the U.N. will now DIRECTLY CONTROL ALL
    INDIVIDUALS within its new global, unboundaried community. The U.N. plans to
    accomplish its goals via a system of comprehensive security through total
    worldwide disarmament, demobilization, and demilitarizaton. (Brutal military
    force).
    AND here; CFR/Bilderberg Plan To Erase US Borders Finally Gets Attention (June 21, 2006)

    The open plan to merge the US with Mexico and Canada and create a Pan American Union networked by a NAFTA Super Highway has long been a Globalist brainchild but its very real and prescient implementation on behalf of the Council on Foreign Relations has finally been reported on by the Associated Press.
    END.

    Sadly, most of the naysayers will say, gosh, I thought they were only joking, I had no idea.

    Poeple need to wake up.
    Yes, there have been those wealthy individuals who have wanted world domonation for centuries, but with automation, Technology, Stock market going to H.E. Double Hockey Sticks in a handbasket, your home losing 1/2 its value or more and self-enslavement(mortgages and financed[ccards] to the hilt) like never before, their dream will come to fruition sooner, not later.
    We are losing this battle.

    Giving money and power to the government is like giving whiskey and car
    keys to teenage boys.

    Hermann Goering:
    Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

    Anyone been to an airport lately? Holy crap, there's like 30 TSA agents at even the small check points! I know how important it is to have them, but come on. There's maybe half of them doing actual work while the others are BSing with each other and yelling at travelers. I think we can make do with a few less TSA agents.
