VP Robert Pepperdine recently appeared on a news program on a Phoenix station.
Local 2544 officers have been hitting multiple news programs and we’ll continue to link as many as we can.
The more exposure we can get right now on this ridiculous sequestration issue and the damage it’s going to do to this nation’s security the better.
You can see the interview here.

Local 2544 President Art Del Cueto appeared on several news programs yesterday. One of those interviews was with Spanish language network Univision.
This Local will continue to be aggressive in getting the word out about the devastation these pay cuts are going to cause for agents and their families, as well as how the cuts will dismantle any gains made in border security over the years.
We will also be posting a few pictures soon demonstrating the current onslaught of new illegal alien groups crashing the border to take advantage of the forthcoming Obama amnesty and a demoralized force of Border Patrol agents who are preoccupied trying to figure out how they are going to pay their mortgage and other bills next month when these cuts hit us.

Local 2544 President Art Del Cueto has been appearing on local and national news programs for the past month or two. We will start linking the programs here. He has been on Fox News Channel and local news stations in Tucson and Phoenix (including Spanish language networks).
The Local 2544 Executive Board has been extremely busy the last month or two. In addition to the sequestration and pay issues we had a week-long NBPC convention that we had to attend. The Local 2544 president’s wife just had a baby in the last week or so as well, which obviously made things even more difficult to keep up with. We are all Border Patrol agents and we volunteer to do this work. We have no outside staff and we do everything ourselves, including the administration of this website. Some of us have been working through every weekend in recent memory and putting in long days. We will continue to do what we can and we’ll continue to get news stories posted here.
We have received some good questions, comments and suggestions from the readers of this site and we thank you for that.
