  • CBP after elections?

    Through some PMs about the Border Patrol with one of the members on o.com, an interesting topic came up, what do you all see happening to CBP after the election?

    I worry that keeping our borders safe is not going to be pushed that high on the agenda anymore, what do you all see happening?

    I realize that politics will play a huge role on the future of CBP, but let's try not to make it a flame thread .

    I don't see much happening, at least anytime soon. I still believe it is going to take another major event to effect any major change in the agency. Even then the change will be temporary unless we get a change in leadership. The agency has alot of potential, but it will never be realized with our current leadership.

        That is exactly the problem right there, it’s on the agenda and everyone knows the importance surrounding it yet the topic is looked at like something that can take the back seat when it should be a priority.

          As if border security is high on the agenda right now?

          Please, nothing could be worse then the so called border security system we have right now.

            Yeah, I guess it wasn't that high in the first place. It seems as though it had been pushed higher on the agenda these last couple years, especially after Bush' second term. I hope it doesn't change.

              Nothing will happen, either for good or for bad. In the grand scheme of things, elections have little impact on what happens down here in the trenches. Although some high level political appointment people in some agencies might get replaced (Secretaries, Commisioners), most others are career people and really run the agencies. Bureaucracy in the federal government moves a LOT slower than in local governments. All that really changes are the talking points to the media.

I have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it."

                There has been more media attention and more hiring. Media attention means that you (the public) actually find out about some things now, in the past the same things happened, you just didn't know. The hiring is a last minute effort to meet a congressional staffing mandate that came after 9/11. This does not equate being higher on the agenda the last few years.

                  That answers the question.
