Our Border Control Agents have done an incredible job under very adverse conditions. I am very proud to have increased their salaries because of the great job they do. Nobody deserves it more. THANK YOU and keep up the outstanding work!


ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER LIE

Trump administration to pay quarterly cash bonuses in move to retain Border Patrol agents

The Trump administration is implementing a first of its kind financial incentive it hopes will help U.S. Border Patrol retain agents following years in which more employees left than were hired.

Border Patrol's parent agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, on Wednesday announced a plan to reward rank-and-file agents and supervisors who enroll in the program with quarterly payments totaling 5% of their base salary. Agents must sign a contract to stay on with Border Patrol for 12-month stints.

The program is being rolled out quickly. Employees can sign up starting next week. Bonuses will start accruing in June and the first bonuses will be dispersed in September.

“Investing in the men and women of the United States Border Patrol continues to be my top priority,” U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said in a statement. “Their experience and expertise is critical to successfully accomplishing the border security mission.”

1. Well, well, well just think, now they are going to owe even more tax money next year

also. All of you border patrol better get a higher monthly take out so maybe you will at least not owe. It is amazing he is going to do the same thing right after many just realized that they got screwed.
