AFGE Denounces Federal Pay Freeze

From the article on Yahoo! News:

"This proposal is a superficial panic reaction to the draconian cuts the deficit commission will recommend," stated AFGE National President John Gage. "A federal pay freeze saves peanuts at best and, while he may mean it as just a public relations gesture, this is no time for political scapegoating. The American people didn't vote to stick it to a VA nursing assistant making $28,000 a year or a border patrol agent earning $34,000 per year.

USBP Shooting in Eagle Pass

On October 5, 2010, a Border Patrol Agent working near Eagle Pass, Texas, was involved in an on-duty shooting. That shooting resulted in the death of Eagle Pass resident, Juan Mendez. As the investigation is still ongoing, full details have not been released. What is known, though, is that over 300 lbs of marijuana was found in Mendez's vehicle and that he physically assaulted the agent.

Later that week, Maverick County Sheriff Tomas Herrera gave an impromptu press conference in which he made several allegations against the Border Patrol Agent, including that the agent was wrong in using his firearm, saying he should not have fired "in a case like this".
