MEETING DATE – July 11, Paul Perez
President of the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol Agent’s Union (RGV3307)
Paul has been a Border Patrol agent for over 25 years, entering on duty with the U.S. Border Patrol in July of 1997. After attending and graduating from the Border Patrol Academy in Charleston, SC, he was assigned to the Kingsville, Texas Border Patrol Station, in what is now known as the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector. Paul has served in numerous positions within the Border Patrol, to include as a trained and certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) (2002 – present), a Field Training Officer (FTO), an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Unit member, and as a member of the prestigious U.S. Border Patrol Honor Guard, serving both as an Honor Guard member and a drummer with the Drum & Bagpipes Team. He’s been detailed to Brownsville, Texas; Detroit, Michigan; and Tucson, Arizona, all in support of Border Patrol enforcement activities.
Paul became the President of the National Border Patrol Council’s McAllen/RGV Local 3307 in 2002. In March 2007, at the National Border Patrol Council Convention, Paul was first elected to the NBPC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) as the National Vice President of the NBPC Southern Region. In that position, he had oversight of the NBPC Locals and operations in Texas and New Mexico (El Paso; Big Bend; Del Rio; Laredo; and RGV), as well as the BP Academy in Artesia, NM. Paul was re-elected and served in that position for ten years (2007-2017).
At the NBPC Convention in March of 2017, Paul was elected to serve in the position of National Executive Vice President (EVP) of the NBPC, the NBPC’s second-highest ranking office. In February of 2020, and March of 2023, he was re-elected as the National Executive Vice President and currently serves in that position today, as well as continuing to serve as the President of NBPC Local 3307 (RGV).
Paul oversees the NBPC’s Legal Division. In that capacity he provides oversight of all legal work assigned to each of the NBPC’s attorneys and paralegals who provide administrative and criminal representation, as well as legal guidance, to members of the NBPC nationwide. In addition, the Legal Division is tasked with oversight of all continuing education training for Union Representatives nationwide. Paul also coordinates all training seminars and business meetings, as well as the triennial NBPC Convention.
Paul has also coordinated, briefed and led numerous congressional delegation (CoDel) border tours for U.S. Congressional Members of both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, to include the largest group of U.S. Senators to ever visit the US/Mexico border. He has also briefed and been a guest speaker of numerous local and state officials from different states, as well as several advocacy groups regarding the ongoing border crisis, as the RGV sector has been ground zero and a continuing hotbed for immigration and drug seizures since 2014.
Paul is a native of North Texas and a proud military veteran who resides in the Texas Coastal Bend with his family.
