Bill introduced to increase Border Patrol Agents’ overtime pay


RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Thursday, U.S. Senator John Cornyn introduced a bill to increase U.S. Border Patrol Agents’ overtime pay.

The Border Patrol Pay Security Act ensures agents earn similar overtime compensation already offered to other federal law enforcement agents.

It amends the Fair Labor Standards Act to allow agents to receive time and a half for hours worked between 80 and 100 hours during 14 consecutive days.
