Donald Trump has energized the Republican base with his repeated calls for a “yooj wall” to be built on our southern border. Many Americans recognize that our continued failure to enforce our immigration laws is eating our country alive. Others have seen their lives and property destroyed by invading illegal aliens. First among those folks are the border patrol agents who bravely patrol the American southwest in search of drug dealers and invaders. In what can only be seen as the most important endorsement of Trump’s immigration policy to date, the National Border Patrol Council decided to endorse Trump. As Brandon Darby notes:
In an official statement first obtained by Breitbart Texas, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) 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 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), if Trump is elected.
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.”
Politicians and big business can complain all they want about the effectiveness and feasability of Trump’s border wall, but it’s clear that those people on the front lines who fight to keep us safe every day have thought about it, and they’re endorsing Trump.
