Border Patrol Agent

Odds of Getting In

The odds of getting in were better years ago when the Border Patrol was hiring like mad immediately following September 11th. Under the George Bush presidency, the Border Patrol hired thousands of agents. Their hiring has since slowed down. This change is not all bad, as it means there haven't been any other terrorist attacks on our country. Sorry if that hurts your chances of employment.
