In this Weeks Show Art and Chris discuss the increase over the holidays with illegal traffic yet call on the agency to make sure the coverage happens through all areas and adjust the processing times required for those in custody so that agents can return to the field to do what they do best. Chris speaks of the 4 to 1 ratio between managers and agents and feels the top heavy style affects the job at hand. Art feels the same with the due respects to watch commanders and managers however it does need to be adjusted.
The National Border Patrol Council provides an important backbone to the Agents and Art and Chris discuss the benefits of the Council in respects to the protection of agent’s rights. Chris discusses the steps involved with Agents and Investigations after a Critical Situation.
Art takes a walk down memory lane and admits to being the original Skinny Jean fashion statement in his rock and roll days of the 80’s. Chris offers the keen observation that this more than likely led to Art’s Hair Loss. Chris shares the inspirations musically from his youth which differ greatly from Arts.
The Attacks on Agents have continued and the guys stress on all agents to concentrate on making it home safely.
Happy New Year wishes from The Green Line to all agents and listeners.
