The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) has never made an endorsement during a Presidential primary before. But, due to the crisis at the Southern border with Mexico, they are breaking that rule to endorse conservative businessman Donald J. Trump!
This union, which consists of 16,500 border patrol agents, made it clear that Trump is the strongest candidate on border security.
As Brandon Judd, President of the NBPC said:
Unlike his opponents, Donald Trump is not a career politician, he is an outsider who has created thousands of jobs, pledged to bring about aggressive pro-American change, and who is completely independent of special interests. We don’t need a person who has the perfect Washington-approved tone, and certainly NOT another establishment politician in the W.H. Indeed, the fact that people are more upset about Mr. Trump’s tone than about the destruction wrought by open borders tells us everything we need to know about the corruption in Washington.
We need a person in the White House who doesn’t fear the media, who doesn’t embrace political correctness, who doesn’t need the money, who is familiar with success, who won’t bow to foreign dictators, who is pro-military and values law enforcement, and who is angry for America and NOT subservient to the interests of other nations. Donald Trump is such a man.
Trump has stood firm on his plan to force Mexico to pay for the building of a large wall along the border. Securing the border is a national security threat, and during Obama’s two terms in office there have been millions of illegal aliens who have broken our immigration laws.
The organization also attacked Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), without naming him:
As an organization we expect our elected officials to aggressively pursue the interests of the country. America has already tried a young, articulate freshman senator who never created a job as an attorney and under whose watch criminal cartels have been given the freest border reign ever known.
There is no greater physical or economic threat to Americans today than our open border. And there is no greater political threat than the control of Washington by special interests. In view of these threats, the National Border Patrol Council endorses Donald J. Trump for President – and asks the American people to support Mr. Trump in his mission to finally secure the border of the United States of America, before it is too late.
