Border Patrol? We don’t need no stinking border patrol!

Oops, did I forget to advertise the US Border Patrol Recruiting event in West Des Moines, IA yesterday?

Oh well, when the pay is “up to $50,000 dollars for the first year and up to $70,000 within three years of service” I’m sure they will find someone willing to become a glorified security guard.

Discrepancy alert: another news agency has reported that “Border Patrol recruits earn between $36,000 and $46,000 in their first year, with the potential of earning up to $70,000 per year within three years of service.”

If you are chosen to protect one of the US borders, you will have to move to Texas, Arizona, California, or New Mexico.


Interesting. Don’t we also have a border to the north? Isn’t the threat of a terrorist or biological weapon attack coming from Canada just as great as from the South?

Why aren’t any USBP agents being deployed to Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine?
