The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) is a labor union established in 1967 that represents agents and support staff on the United States Border Patrol. It is an affiliate of the American Federation of Government Employees, and through that larger organization is a member of the AFL-CIO.[4][5]

History[edit]

During the 2016 presidential election, the group made its first presidential endorsement in October of 2016 for Republican nominee Donald Trump, who later was elected the 45th President of the United States.[1]
