CBP HAS TO HIRE 5,000 NEW BORDER PATROL AGENTS. IT'S PAYING A PRIVATE COMPANY $297 MILLION TO HELP.

With a mandate from President Donald Trump to hire 5,000 new Border Patrol agents, Customs and Border Protection awarded a $297 million contract to a private company to help recruit and hire the new agents and other workers. The contract with a division of Accenture, an international professional services corporation with $35 billion in revenues in 2017, comes at a time when the Border Patrol is struggling to meet minimum staffing levels mandated by Congress and is losing more agents per year than it hires.
