Border Patrol Praises “Miraculous” Decline in Illegal Entry Under Trump

border patrol TrumpPresident Trump has been receiving exceedingly high praise on his border security initiatives. In a recent interview, Brandon Judd—head of the National Border Council, revealed that morale within the agency has reached a new high under President Trump, due to Trump’s commitment to enforcing existing federal laws. “There’s an energy in the Border Patrol that’s never been there before,” he stated, “we’re excited because we signed up to do a job and this president is allowing us to do that job”.

During his presidential campaign, Trump made border security a main issue, vowing to deport illegal immigrants and build a wall along the US-Mexico border. The president has also urged Congress to fund the hiring of more Border Patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. Trump told reporters in early July that he plans to add hundreds of miles of new fencing along the border as well.

Although detractors have come down harshly on President Trump, calling the border wall a human rights violation and condemning it as unconstitutional, the bold initiative has proven to be successful thus far, with illegal immigration declining at a rate Judd calls “nothing less than miraculous”.

Critics can lambast Trump all they want, but the facts speak for themselves: the man is keeping his campaign promises.

When asked about Trump’s effectiveness in his border security initiative, Judd attributed the president’s success to his strong rhetoric and no-nonsense approach, but added that it’s time for Congress to step up and take action to support the president. “No other president has been able to cut the number of illegal border crossings as President Trump has, and it’s been strictly due to his rhetoric,” he explained, “As the numbers steadily increase, it is time for Congress to act.” Judd also debunked the common criticism of liberal pundits who argue that the United States cannot afford to secure the border with a wall, explaining that the high cost of drug smuggling and other illegal alien crime far exceeds the cost of securing our nation’s border.

In the month of July alone, US Customs and Border Protection reported a 53% decrease in the number of apprehensions at the southwest border since last year, this drop in apprehensions indicating a drop in overall attempted illegal crossings. Congress has also approved a spending bill that would put $1.6 billion toward construction of the wall.

Judd says that with Trump’s strong focus on border control and security, the president sends a clear message to the rest of the world: “if you cross our borders illegally, you will be detained and you will be sent back”.

God Bless the Border Patrol and ICE and ALL of our Law Enforcement Officers!

A few thoughts.

Since when did national sovereignty become a “human rights violation” and who declared it so?

How many Liberals do you know that have opened up their own homes, bank accounts and food larders to illegal aliens?

The Congress and the Executive Branch set immigration quotas and enforce them not the Judiciary. So why are “judges” ruling otherwise?

This issue will not be resolved until Trump and the GOP majority in Congress get together on it. Oh, wait. LOL. The GOP. Pardon me, a little joke. The Globalist Owned Pussycats are working for the other team!

The Left is working 24/7 to push the 45 Goals of Communism in America and that is undeniable. As long as the GOP (LOL) keeps retreating nothing will stop that. Trump can and has done much but he cannot do it alone!

Countries all over the world do not let just anyone enter their country. So what idiots say this is a “human rights violation”. Who had a “human right” to enter another country in violation of that nation’s laws?

Also, only idiot “progressives” could consider this “unconstitutional” — what part of the Constitution says that anyone can enter this country just by walking in?

It is refreshing that there are people especially in a high government office that follow through with their words and promises. This decision has to be good for America. I am one who prays for our nation and leaders whoever they are. God help this USA.

It’s nice to have the intention to help people out, but let’s not do it in a chaotic manner. Support legal immigration and promote legal citizenry.

I love the progress being made at the border. God bless Donald Trump. The miracle performed was Donald getting elected. But miracles are not what happened here. It was so simple: enforce the laws of this great country, hire more people, and again, enforce the law. We don’t need a bunch of broke, unskilled, non english speaking, begger people sucking up our resources. Check it out, they come here dead broke,without any of the essentials needed to support themselves and immediately began to collect social services. I have seen illegals or legals come and ask for work and they want 22-24 $ an hour to start!!! They dont have any tools, no knowledge of what they’re doing, yet thats the money they want. It only takes about 2 grand to tool yourself to be a carpenter or framer. 22-24 an hour is what a decent intermittent guy with tools get.
