Furloughs? Overtime cuts? Border Patrol Agents Still Don’t Know What’s Looming

Border Patrol agents are in the dark about a lot of things these days.

With the fiscal year halfway through, agents still don’t know whether they will have furlough days or overtime reductions, the Arizona Daily Star reports.

A plan submitted by Customs and Border Protection to Congress seeks to eliminate the need for furloughs.

“However, other effects of sequestration will remain and will continue to have serious impacts on CBP’s operations, including nearly $600 million in cuts,” Jenny Burke, CBP spokeswoman, wrote in an email statement to the Star.
