AT&T plan suspended until further notice

Dear members. The AT&T plan will be suspended until further notice. An influx of members going to AT&T stores and questions sent to general customer service plans has caused AT&T to reevaluate their position with the program.
In the mean time please do not go to any stores or call customer service regarding these government plans. They do not have direct access to these plans and cannot help you or sign you up to them. The original intent was for it to be strictly run by an NBPC administator who would process all applications and equipment.
A petition has been submitted to AT&T and we are awaiting an answer to hopefully remedy the situation. If the program is reestablished we will notify through a grass roots effort at the Local President Level. All plan info or any general info regarding these plans will be withheld off of social media and websites for the time being which has been requested by AT&T corporate
Thank you for understanding.
Andrew Brady Plan administrator

The recently completed Body Worn Camera feasibility study report issued by Commissioner Kerlikowkse is a perfect example of the dysfunctional operations within CBP. BWC’s are but one piece of equipment that has come to the forefront in regards to Border Patrol Agents. CBP continues to focus its efforts on appeasing special interest groups rather that improving the efficiency, safety and morale of the men and women who risk their lives every day protecting this country.

CBP needs to meet its obligation to these men and women by providing the infrastructure, equipment and training necessary to allow the Border Patrol to continue to evolve as a  professional law enforcement organization. This cannot be done by simply placating the masses. Decisions need to be made and a commitment to the well-being of the country and the agents is critical.

Border Patrol Agents need:

  1. Updated technology;
    1. Radios
    2. Cameras
    3. Vehicles
    4. Weapons (to include less lethal devices)
  2. A negotiated contract
    1. CBP needs to stop stalling and resume face to face negotiations
    2. Stop allowing LER to run the show
  3. A wellness program that provides confidentiality.
  4. Improved training.
  5. Increased manpower.
  6. A new Chief who will make enforcement of US Immigration laws a priority. 

The Border Patrol is steeped in tradition and a culture that is slow to change. This culture is endangering the lives of the American public and the Agents in the field. CBP must change course and address the threat of political correctness and pandering. CBP has a duty to give every agent the necessary resources to protect this country and themselves. CBP is failing in that regard and it needs to change.

Help BPA Alex Urzua Fight Spinal Cancer

Alex's Fund for Cancer Treatment

Alex Urzua was diagnosed with Stage II Ependymoma Cancer in June of 2014. In September of 2014, a malignant tumor was removed from Alex’s spinal cord. In January of 2015, Alex was informed that he had another malignant tumor on his spinal cord, but this time the tumor is inoperable. Doctors have decided that the best course of action is for Alex to receive proton therapy radiation to treat the tumor. Alex’s insurance has denied their claim and several appeals for the proton radiation treatment. He is going to move ahead with treatment in December regardless of coverage.  The estimated cost for treatment is $50,000.

Alex is a loving husband, a well-respected co-worker, and a gentleman. His humble personality has stopped him from asking anyone for help, so his friends and co-workers are banding together to raise the money he needs for this life-saving treatment. Getting Alex cancer-free will mean an immense amount to his friends.  It will mean EVERYTHING to Alex and his wife.
