The border patrol agents have long been at odds with Obama for his open door policy and orders that they not arrest or detain illegals entering the United States. They do not endorse candidates normally, but decided that in this case securing the border was too important to ignore. They looked at all the candidates and determined there was only one candidate they could depend on and that candidate was Donald Trump.
“I am … especially honored that they would break with their past precedent of not endorsing in presidential primaries in order to endorse my candidacy. This endorsement represents a total rejection of the corrupt politicians who have allowed transnational gangs and cartels to terrorize American communities.”
“The NBPC provides the vital outlet to learn the truth – not the political spin from bureaucrats – about what is really happening on our border. And the NBPC has been the one outlet these agents have to prevent their voice from being drowned out by big money special interests. As President, I will work tirelessly with the NBPC and their rank-and-file agents to secure our border once and for all.”
The NBPC put out a statement endorsing Trump:
“Mr. Trump is as bold and outspoken as other world leaders who put their country’s interests ahead of all else. Americans deserve to benefit for once instead of always paying and apologizing. Our current political establishment has bled this country dry, sees their power evaporating, and isn’t listening to voters who do all the heavy lifting. Trump is opposed by the established powers specifically because they know he is the only candidate who actually threatens the established powers that have betrayed this country.”
“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.”
So why would we not agree with this endorsement? As Chris Farley said in the movie “Tommy Boy”…”I could check out a t-bone steak by sticking my head up a bull’s ass, but I’d rather take the butcher’s word for it.”
