A Rio Grande Valley Sector Supervisory Border Patrol Agent was removed from Federal Service for events surrounding an encounter with a non-cooperative undocumented alien resisting apprehension. The Agent hired Roberto M. Garcia to represent his interests before the Merit Systems Protection Board. Mr. Garcia was able to negotiate with the Agency for a reduction of charges of misconduct, the Agent’s reinstatement to full duty with back pay and the restoration of benefits that the Agent lost. The presiding MSPB Administrative Law Judge approved the settlement on April 27, 2016.
