NTEU: Inadequate CBP Staffing Harms U.S. Security, Economy


  Lines at Customs

Insufficient staffing at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) causes long delays for passengers and cargo to enter this country, jeopardizes U.S. agriculture and threatens tens of billions of dollars in yearly trade revenue, the leader of the largest independent federal-employee union warned.

In a statement to the House Appropriations subcommittee that oversees CBP and other agencies within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the head of National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) said CBP needs more funding and staffing.

An understaffed CBP will be unable to continue providing national and economic security and collecting fees and other levies, which generated more than $41 billion in revenue in fiscal year (FY) 2014, according to NTEU National President Colleen M. Kelley.
