Hi i am from El Paso. I am 19 and speak spanish. I would like do know if border patrol is still hiring. I am currently going to a four year commuter college and living with my mom and older brother who is 26. I am in good shape, i am 6 ft tall and 175 pounds. I love sports and working out. I come from a low income family and want to improve my way of life and be independent. I see my older brother still living at home and it bothers me. He never wegecollege and earns minimum wage. I am currently studying my basic courses and majoring in accounting. I have some knowledge in personal finance, so i wont spend money lavishly if i ever live on my own. Hope i could get some help and tips. I am a citizen if anyone wants do know.minimum wag e

It seems this thread has many controversial discussions. Hope this thread does not become one. I am a Mexican American, light skin, brown hair, and brown eyes just in cause you like to stereotype and think i am brown.

I've spoke to a couple people I know back when I lived in San Diego and they said they were in need of new hires.

The color of your skin is irrelevant. If you are a loyal U.S. citizen or legal immigrant that is all that matters. From what I understand Obama has cut back on the Border Patrol recently as part of his spending cuts.

For a job with the Border Patrol, applicants must be U.S. citizens (either native-born or naturalized). All immediate family members probably need to be as well. And as far as I knew, the annual mandated hiring of 6,000 Border Patrol agents hasn't had any had any further legislation blocking it.

I am aware that a BP agent would have to be a U.S. citizen. My remarks were about what is the acceptability for just being in this country. I have no idea why the poster brought skin color into the issue.

I refer you back to this topic. If the sequester will mean furloughing the BP for a few days a month why would there be more hiring of BP agents?

Democrates warn of weaker boarders as a result of sequestration...

maybe at 19 he believes his skin color somehow makes him more acceptable...more above suspicion.

Suspicion of what? Are you implying that just because someone has brown skin they are automatically assumed to be in our country illegally? Since when isn't this country accepting of different skin tones? You'd have to go quite a ways back in history to make that claim.

You can spare that faux outrage.

You have stated several times that if a person is speaking Spanish that is evidence that they may be in the country illegally. It is not exactly a leap of logic to imply that nativists may make the same type of assumption based on skin color.
