        • Another call went out to a member on the BPA side of delphiforums.com for Nogales, AZ with an academy date of 1/19/11. Looks like he may turn down the offer when he discovered it was for CBPO since he initially presumed the call was for the BPA position and was told by MHC to expect a call for the BPA position in the next few days. TO date of 6/16/09 (for those waiting for Arizona).

              • DHS Statement on Increased Security Precautions
                Release Date: October 29, 2010

                Contact: 202-282-8010

                "As a precaution, DHS has taken a number of steps to enhance security. Some of these security measures will be visible while others will not.

As always, we remind the public to remain vigilant and report suspicious activity to local law enforcement."

                • I recently re-submitted my BI paperwork because it expired too. I'm just curious, has anyone who's background never actually cleared and never made it to TSU had to do this? I met with my BI in Feb 09 and 6 months past but was still pending. Deployed to Iraq for 1 year, returned and re-submitted the paperwork yesterday.

                      Definitely maybe. I have a VA disability for limited movement and pain in a toe after a surgery in the military to stop it from hurting. The surgery makes it very painful to stand on my feet for more than a couple hours and limits other activities is several ways. I also have a small scar on my neck about the size of a dime. I had to go in to be cleared by my doctor for the scar, but not the foot issue. My doctor even asked how the scar was going to affect anything. I still don't understand the issue with the scar but the who cares attitude with an issue that actually can affect my job performance.
                      But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                      For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

                              It's my 4th with CBP... I haven't counted the one for the Army and other federal apps I've put in for... This is beyond ridiculous. I'm about to step out to a job fair for the Military... and guess who's on the list of recruiters... US Customs and Border Protection!!!... My 1st question will be: why in the world are they there if they haven't been hiring and have so many like myself in the waiting pool???... and then I'll ask why would it take so long for IA to clear a BI!

                                I seem to be stuck in "pendingville" after being pulled from TSU for the FCRA update. Would anyone like to comment on what would be considered "typical" for a timeframe to get back into TSU after submitting the form?..
                                It took me about a month to get all green checks again from the time I sent my FCRA in.
