The Office of Personnel Management has informed the US Federal Government Employees Federation (AFGE) that it will follow a series of steps to compel Border Patrol agents to accept COVID-19 vaccinations or face termination of employment. The operation was submitted to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), the AFGE’s affiliated union.
According to a CBP source, the National Council for the Prevention of Torture was informed on Wednesday that the Office of Personnel Management has identified disciplinary steps that border guards will take to influence clients who are not immunized or face removal from their positions.
Any dealership who remains unvaccinated by November 22, 2021 will receive official “advice and education” about a jab, according to an indicative announcement reviewed by Breitbart Texas. The employee will then be allowed five days to start the vaccination regimen. After the five-day and no-bullet period, agents will face an unpaid suspension from work for up to 14 days. Termination proceedings then begin for those who still refuse the authorization.
Breitbart Texas reached out to the NBPC for comment on Thursday.
John Anvinsen, president of the National Border Patrol Board for the Del Rio Sector, says the agency cannot afford to lose any personnel.
“The National Border Patrol Board is totally against the vaccine mandate, and we have been looking for an ongoing legal path,” he told Breitbart Texas. “The border guards cannot afford to lose a single member of their workforce while the crisis at the border continues to spiral out of control.”
Anfinsen says the Office of Personnel Management is set to formally release the procedures to the workforce at short notice.
