One year of The Green Line! Thanks to all our listeners who have made this possible. The second year is underway and it will be epic!
It’s been 416 days since the murder of Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega, Jr. and still CBP refuses to classify it as a line of duty death.
Shawn Moran and Thane Gallagher talk about the rise in apprehensions of families and juveniles in SW border sectors? Is anyone really surprised? The NBPC warned of this last year but as usual CBP downplays the issue with some fuzzy math. TSA officers are trying to get recognized for Public Safety Officer Benefits and Thane and Shawn have their opinions on it. They also look back at some of the highlights from the past year of episodes.
