Border Patrol Offers Jobs for Women Only to Help Correct Gender Imbalance

A job posting for new Border Patrol agents didn’t mince words: “Male applicants won’t be considered.”

Customs and Border Protection is trying to correct a significant gender imbalance in the agency by recruiting only women, Fronteras reports.

“Customs and Border Protection has a critical need for female Border Patrol Agents for the screening of female detainees who enter the United States,” reads the job post.

The full-time jobs start with salaries ranging between $39,000 to $44,400 and offer plenty off opportunities for promotions.

Border Patrol hires a small portion of women than most federal law enforcement agencies.

Spokeswoman Agent Shevannah Wray said there’s a greater need for female agents because apprehensions of women are up 173% since 2011.
