Border Patrol Suspends Sequestration Furloughs
April 02, 2013
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is pulling back on its plan to furlough agents and slash overtime, the San Diego Union Tribune is reporting.
Deputy Commissioner Thomas Winkowski told workers Monday morning that the agency for now is postponing planned furloughs of up to 14 days and a ban on overtime.
He attributed the suspension in the agency's response to sequestration cuts to an appropriations bill signed by President Barack Obama last week that gives it more flexibility.
