    Border Patrol Agent/CBP Officer

    Does anyone have any idea when there will be a new announcement open for Border Patrol Agent or CBP Officer?

    Could be a long time for the Patrol. We keep out illegal aliens
    (aka: democratic party voters) so the guy in the white house is not to keen on us. Maybe a couple of years.

    I know of nobody that has any good idea of when either position will open up again for applicants. It could be two days or two years from now.

    It'll happen when the powers that be decide that it'll happen. I think they'll open back up the moment it becomes advantageous for them to do so, regardless of how many are waiting in the pipeline.

    A couple of years in law enforcement will cure that. You may not become a republican but you will no longer identify yourself with the party of victimhood. I do not care for either one of them myself. Neither one of them care about regular working American citizens.

    They have a cool tv show. Border Patrol/CBP that is. Not talking about the democratic party. :-)

    It's a great recruiting tool, but sadly isn't what I'd call the real thing for some employees.

    Here's what my episode would start out like: "THIS WEEK ON BORDER WARS: IDENT AND E3 GO DOWN!"

    Inside joke for the employees I guess.
    "Officer, you are kinda hot."

    "And you are kinda intoxicated."

    This is so true... And for the BPAs in the real lonely parts, it would feature them calling for backup that is 3 hrs out.

    To zeoc that started this thread, there are already a BP and CBP thread. Like another person on here said hiring in this field probably won't start until we get a different more proactive administration. The pipeline is full as well already.

    And 7 PAs have to write memos because they crashed in the snow. How is life treating you over there?

    Wouldn't a recruiting tool actually imply that they were attempting to do some hiring?

    The vast majority of people don't know and don't care what goes on at our country's borders. Even less know there is a difference between the guys in blue at the ports and the guys in green running around in the desert; to include the media and many of our elected officials.

    This show isn't bad so far and might get some people to open their eyes, some might even decide that looks like something they'd like to do someday. Most people though are sheeple and will be watching jersey shore or american idol instead...

    Zeoc,

    2010 does not look good even for the CBPO's in the pipeline. Consider getting your foot in the door as a Sector Enforcement Specialist. I can't speak for the people in green.

    Good Luck.

    Any new CBPO/BPA hiring announcement that might pop up in the near future would be targeting new hires for late 2010 through early 2012. It really wouldn't have all that much relation with current hiring trends or today's TSU.

    Haha, that's so true! I caught some dope 2 hrs into my AUO the other day and E3 was Down! Also If I am able to catch the dope at midnight, why cant the AUSA be awake and let me know if they can take the case at midnight!
