Border Patrol has launched on an unprecedented campaign to hire more female officers.

Now, a bill by Sen. Charles Schumer seeks to help expedite the hiring of veterans, 7 News reports. 

The bill aims to require the recruitment of military service members for open Border Patrol positions.

Schumer said the idea is to end delays in hiring and to help veterans land jobs so they can continue serving their country.

The Democratic senator said the soldiers who are returning home from overseas have the training and skills to handle the job.

WASHINGTON — Expect to see more names added to the U.S. terrorist list as a result of evidence snatched in Pakistan during the Osama bin Laden mission last weekend.

That’s what Atty. General Eric Holder Jr said Wednesday in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to CNN.

“The material that was seized from that residence is being reviewed by an inter-agency team: CIA, Justice, other intelligence agencies, other law enforcement agencies are contributing people and machines to go through that material,” Holder said. “As we glean information from that material, we will make appropriate decisions with regard to who might we add to the terrorist watch list, the No Fly list, all those things,” Holder told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, asked, “You expect you probably will add people as a result of what you got?”

Holder replied, according to CNN: “My guess is that we probably will.”

Holder also said the Justice Department is trying to anticipate any retaliation by terrorists.

“I had a conference call with all of the United States attorneys, I believe on Tuesday maybe on Monday, going through with them ‘think steps’ that we wanted them to take, making sure they as well as all the federal investigative agencies, were on their toes and being mindful of the fact that this is a difficult time for this nation after the death of bin Laden,” Holder said.
