Illegal immigration has become so taxing on our agencies and resources that the border patrol is offering up to $20,000 to recruit new agents. The desperation by the agency comes as the Border Patrol and Department of Homeland Security are struggling with an overwhelming number of migrants crossing the border illegally.

A $20k incentive will be offered to new agents who agree to deploy to “hard-to-fill” locations which includes Sierra Blanca, Texas; Presidio, Texas; Sanderson, Texas; Comstock, Texas; Lordsburg, New Mexico; Freer, Texas; Hebbronville, Texas; Ajo, Arizona.

Just The News reports that figure includes $10,000 the agency will offer to any new Border Patrol Agents upon their completion of the academy and a potential $10,000 extra should they accept service at one of several high-need border sites. CBP offers up to $45,000 in yearly salary depending on location.

Recipients of either the $10,000 or the full $20,000 “must commit to a two-year service agreement. Other requirements include U.S. citizenship, possession of a valid driver’s license, eligibility to carry a firearm, and successful application.”

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote




The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
