Everyone knows that the idea of building a proper border wall between the United States and Mexico is Donald Trump’s idea.
And we know that when he is elected he will do it too!
Every right-thinking American also knows that Obama’s continued failure to enforce our immigration laws is slowly but surely destroying America and leaving it open to future attacks.
Many Americans have already suffered the consequences of an open border, from theft and destruction of property to major crimes up to and including rapes and murders.
The people in the front line of America’s defense are the border patrol agents who bravely patrol the American southwest in search of drug dealers and invaders. They should be considered even more brave because, just as he has done with the military elsewhere, Obama has tied their hands behind their backs with red tape and impossible rules of engagement.
But now those in the Border Patrol are making their feelings known. And they are doing it by endorsing Donald Trump and his immigration policy.
National Border Patrol Council
In an official statement the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) has endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States.
The unusually bold statement comes just days after a senior policy adviser for Trump made clear that, if Trump is elected, future U.S. border security policy would be largely determined by the men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol who are actual agents protecting the border and not by politically-appointed bureaucrats in the Border Patrol or its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
The endorsement is the first-ever in a presidential primary for the NBPC.
The agents’ statement makes clear that Trump’s public pledge to secure the border by turning to the actual agents in the NBPC is revolutionary and an opportunity never-before-seen and one that may never be seen again.
They wrote, “Mr. Trump will take on special interest and embrace the ideas of rank-and-file Border Patrol agents rather than listening to the management yes-men who say whatever they are programmed to say. This is a refreshing change that we have not seen before – and may never see again.”
It is clear that those people on the front lines who fight to keep us safe every day have thought about the various candidates’ positions on border security and they are endorsing Donald Trump.
