As the flood of illegal aliens into the U.S. creates a crisis situation, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency is advertising that it is seeking applicants for 2,000 new CBP officer positions.

"We are recruiting applicants of the highest integrity and moral character to become members of the CBP workforce," said Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske said yesterday, announcing the recruitment effort. "We are looking for candidates who want to serve and protect this country and who meet the rigorous employment standards of the CBP officer position."

To qualify for the CBP officer positions, applicants must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen,
  • Be a resident of the U.S for the past three years,
  • Be referred for selection prior to their 37th birthday (or a preference eligible veteran, or have prior civilian federal law enforcement experience),
  • Have a valid driver's license,
  • Pass an entrance examination, medical examination, physical fitness assessments, video-based test and/or structured interview, drug test, background investigation and polygraph examination.

The announcement comes as a new Gallup poll shows that Americans now rate the flood of illegal aliens as the most important problem facing the country today.
