Border Patrol union: ‘Trump is the only candidate’ to support agents

by Paul Bedard  |  published on March 20, 2016

The largest U.S. Border Patrol union local is praising Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for being the “only candidate” to support their tough mission, an almost endorsement that is the latest boost for the front runner’s campaign.

“Mr. Trump is the only candidate that has publicly expressed his support of our mission and our agents. He has been an outspoken candidate on the need for a Secure Border and for this we are grateful,” said a statement from Art Del Cueto, president of Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council, the representative of 18,000 agents.

He said that Trump sought the local’s endorsement, though it has a practice of not endorsing.

However, the statement was as close to an endorsement as possible, and was the latest support for Trump given by several influential border state officials.

    Thank you!

    If we can wake up citizens to demand allegiance, we’ll save America. Betrayal of allegiance is still a capital crime that can be enforced in every court in the nation (Article 6). One high profile conviction could tip the dominos and resurrect the USA!

    Trump is the right person. He is at the right place, at the right time for our country.

    • MoonBeamWatcher

      Well stated . . . “Thanks Be To God!”

  • Too big and heavy

    Go Trump!!

    This country needs to wake up to the fact that the Democratic party is just one step beyond the verge of becoming a full fledged Socialistic Communist party and needs to be neutered before it completely destroys what little democracy there is left here. The republicans are nothing short of installing a dictatorship if the party is allowed to deny Trumps nomination as the people are demanding. This country is running with out representation of the people.

    TRUMP YOUR GREAT !!!!!!!!!!!
    You have the establishment shaking in their boots. I support you and am
    giving you props to everyone I know. Mr. President

  • Jerry

    It is just unreal to me that most of the media RNC, and this corrupt government do not listen to the people. We want our way of life and freedoms, we want the constitution reinstated, we want control of our lives. What part of this do they not understand. They want to rule, I am fed up with being a servant and watching the US citizens being robbed blind by large corporations that buy our representatives and then gets all the favorable legislation. And the US citizens getting nothing for their hard earned money paid to a government in taxes that cares nothing for their welfare, we are just their money source and that is all we are good for to them. It is time for a revolution, a rebirth of our nation.

    Poor misguides soles.

    In 2013, trump supported amnesty for all 20 million illegal aliens in America. Cruz does not support amnesty. In 2000, trump supported an assault weapons ban, Cruz supports the 2nd Amendment. In 2015 trump supported
    “touchback” amnesty for every illegal alien in the U.S., Cruz does not support
    amnesty. Trump supports partial-birth abortion. Cruz supports life. In 2015, trump lied to gun media about his past support for assault weapons ban. Trump supports seizure of private property by the government using eminent domain (Kelo). Trump supports Mitch McConnell habitual lies to constituents and fellow GOP Senators. Cruz does not support mcconnell. Trump is currently courting and being courted by the GOP Establishment. The establishment seem to hate Cruz and that is good. Trump currently supports crony capitalism: i.e. billions in taxpayer ethanol subsidies. Cruz stands against crony capitalism. In 2000 trump supported extended waiting periods to purchase firearms. Cruz supports and defends the 2nd Amendment. Trump owes billions to bankers. Cruz owes 1 million. Trump donated $100,000.00 to bogus “Clinton” Foundation. Cruz has not donated
    anything to the socialist/communist Clintons. Trump has been endorsed by GOP Establishment icon Bob Dole who thought Reagan was too fringe. Cruz has not been endorsed by the ESTABLISHMENT. Trump has declared bankruptcy four times which resulted is 4.7 billion dollar default. Cruz has not declared bankruptcy. Trump has divorced two wives and is currently married.
    Cruz is still married to his first wife. Trump has furthered 2 “birther”
    Conspiracies theories against obama. Cruz has not. Trump has Praised/endorsed a Communist for Mayor of New York City. Cruz has not. Trump spends virtually every waking monument on social media. Cruz is concerned with the solutions to America’s problems. History supports the conclusion that trump will shift his position on important issues
    literally overnight. When talking about his supporters, trump made the comment; “I can shoot people on 5th Av. and I won’t lose my support”. I would suspect that Cruz respects his supporters and appreciates their intelligence. Trump has admitted that he will make deals to accomplish the
    GOP/progressive agenda. Cruz has filibustered to prevent bad laws. Trump has stated obamacare/socialized Health care is great. Cruz supports personal selections not government socialized medicine. Trump
    believe in Nationalizing the Banks. Cruz does not. Trump supports a massive Tax increase. Cruz does not. Cruz is guy so stable, sober and poised that I
    would not fear him being in control of the nuclear BUTTON. I can envision trump throwing a temper tantrum and nuking some country.
    Vote Cruz!

    • Susan Cunha

      The reasons you state is why the conservatives are against Trump. I voted for Cruz here in Florida and I think he’s the most qualified but I don’t think he’ll win out in the General. Most of the demographics, such as minorities will not vote for Cruz and the Republican goal should be to defeat Hillary. So I will support the nominee whoever it is. I refuse to stay home.

      Trump employes illegal immigrants.

    • MoonBeamWatcher

      Dear TRUMP might have expressed opinions PRO or CON on issues you enumerate but was NOT, and is NOT in a position to VOTE up or down on ANYTHING regarding IMMAGRATION or ETHENOL.

      • AHP1081

        I can’t find Dear Hearts Post but In response to your post directed at Dear Heart; I suggest that you actually read trumps history before casting dispersions toward Dear Heart. In an effort to assist you I note; trump declared bankruptcy four time, conclusion; His promise means nothing and his ability to manage a business is non-existent. He has been married a total of three times. Two ended with divorce, conclusion; his promises mean nothing. He has tried, on at least two occasions to take property away from private individuals using eminent domain, conclusion; his business ventures outweigh the rights of individuals. He even tried to get the Scottish Government to evict several families in a coastal town so he could build a golf course and Hotel there, conclusion; his business ventures outweigh the rights of private property owners. This list goes on and on and regardless of what his website might present, it is all BS. I use his “real world” history to evaluate him, you suggest that his unproven propaganda is truth and support him. There is a world of difference between proven actions and promised actions.

        • MoonBeamWatcher

          You AHP1081 support a CERIAL LIAR, THIEF and MURDERER who will be convicted of TREASON for crimes that General Petrus was fined and placed on probation for! The Generals misstep was effectively 1000% less dangerous then what HRC did exposing intellectual assets to be exploited by EVERYONE, murdered or feed bad intel to the CIA. 6 BILLION Tax-Payer Dollars missing from Sec. of States Office and her “Pay to Play Money Laundry” that netted the Soviets an American Uranium Mine! She ignored over 60 requests for additional security for our Benghazi outpost – HRC told family members it was all the ‘spontaneous reaction’ to a video which she now claims she didn’t tell them and calls them LIARS. God forgive her. I don’t!
          Then this Ryan fellow gave Soeto EVERYTHING on his “Dear Santa List” and got absolutely NOTHING in return!
          GOP & DNC might as well formally merge since THEY are so criminally connected! Vote selves raises and impose laws on the people and exclude themselves and select groups from participation!

          • AHP1081

            Thank you for your rant. However, Cerial is not a word. I believe you mean Serial. I support Cruz and he does not and did not support any of the things you identify. Please calm down and identify your complaint in a logical manner.

          • MoonBeamWatcher

            I sit corrected on my spelling of serial, Thank you!
            But I’m sure EVERYONE got the gist of my post.
            English and spelling faults are the darling of Liberals who struggle with facts. Hope you have gotten over Cruz! EVERYTHING ELSE IS “STET” and I welcome any and all rebuttals . . .

  • Shane

    Ted Cruz supports the border patrol, unlike Kasich who is a liberal on many issues.

  • clem

    First the Teamsters, now the Boarder Patrol. I believe there many rank and file union members across this Nation backing Trump. They are fed up with Union elite, who are in bed with the Washington elite, telling them who to vote for and using their union dues money to do so. I know I am. “It is time to feed the hogs.”

  • How GREAT is this?? WOW, This really is a boost for the for the next President of the United States!!! TRUMP 2016! All the way to the White House!!!!!!!

    • podunk1

      We must end the treason and lawlessness Trump promises to end during his rallies! It’s the answer to saving the USA! The battle cry is elect a conservative or Hillary, Bernie, or a RINO will finish Obama’s overthrow of the Constitution and country!! Can’t anyone imaginable how damnably suicidal and stupid that is in a nation with Article 3-3, the Constitution, and an entire government bound by 2nd oath allegiance and more? Why aren’t the traitors impeached, arrested, jailed, or hung according to long standing law? We have mass INDIVIDUAL betrayal of allegiance within government!

      That will never happen by Trump’s repeatedly promised process of forcing, compromising, bribing, and negotiating with lawless and treasonous officials to get a good deal! That describes the current RINO/MAOIST progressive tyranny! The only deal is allegiance to an uncompromised Constitution with due probable cause arrest/prosecution with “supreme” emphasis on Supreme law (Article 6)! Failure to do that betrays the allegiance required be BE president.

      The disqualifier is Trump’s dictatorial attack, destroy, and humble anything that gets in his way policy! Trump’s fat-man lap dog and Carson trophies defame the presidency as tyranny!

      Cruz will use the Constitution against its enemies, and they know it! Cruz’s allegiance is to God and Constitution, not himself. As touted by Trump, progressive RINOS and Maoist democrats don’t like or support Cruz… because Cruz honors his allegiance; and “that” is a mortal threat to any traitor!

      • AKLady

        Trump’s dictatorial attack, destroy, and humble anything that gets in his way policy is the making of the Fourth Reich.

        • podunk1

          I haven’t heard Trump mention Article 1 Sections 1&2&3&6 SOLE CONGRESSIONAL mandates and powers to legislate, impeach, remove, try, judge, and PUNISH without ANY reservation, against ANYONE including CONGRESSPERSONS, SCOTUS, and the president! The president and SCOTUS DO NOT HAVE THAT POWER, yet they’re betraying their allegiances and “offices” to legislate by judgment to overthrow the Constitution!! It defies Article 3 (TREASON) and Amendment 14 (ban traitors from office)! They’re freely sabotaging those key checks and balances that would otherwise protect the Constitution.

          • AKLady2015

            What are you ranting about?
            You are making no sense. whatsoever.

          • podunk1

            Buy a dictionary after you learn to read & things will start making sense.

          • AKLady2015

            For your remarks to make sense, one must be willing to accept lies without question.

          • podunk1

            You conveniently forgot:

            Article 1 Powers the president DOESN’T HAVE!

            Sec. 1 “All legislative Powers… shall be vested in a Congress…”

            Section 2 “…The House of Representatives… shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”

            Section 3 “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments (and) Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.”

            Section 6 “… They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest …. (While attending Session)

            Article 2 Sec. 1 “…will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

            Section 3 “…he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…”

            Section 4 “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors…”

            Article 3 Section 3 “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort… The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason…”

            Amendment 14 Section 1 “… No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor… deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny…”

            Section 3 “No (oath bound) person shall … hold any office… (who has) engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”

            Section 4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…” (Wherein Supreme Law IS SUPREME… AND SECTIONS 3&4 are SUPREME!).

            If that’s not enough, look up the word absolute, as in absolutely blunt & understandable… Amendments 1 “Shall make no law…, 2 “shall not be infringed, 4 “shall not be violated… etc., etc., etc.…” and consider the fact its locked in by individual allegiance of every officer and judge, where betrayal is treason.

            Check Webster for the words insurrection, rebellion, treason, & betrayal along with the fact that SCOTUS & Roberts share the common revelation that neither have powers to legislate and both are subject to, and subservient to the power of congressional IMPEACHMENT, TRIAL, CONVICTION, AND PUNISHMENT, according to law, wherein “guess what part is supreme as noted!

          • AKLady

            What he does have is the POWER TO PARDON ALL CRIMES AGAINST THE UNITED STATES.

          • podunk1

            You conveniently added the word “all” and left out “except in cases of impeachment” and wrongfully assume the president isn’t impeachable (Article 2 section 4), isn’t allegiance bound, isn’t MANDATED to execute the laws (article 2-3, isn’t subject to Article 3 section 3 treason, isn’t subject to 14-3 “No (oathbound person) shall shall hold ANY US office who has engaged in insurrection, rebellion, or give aid or comfort to enemies (of the Constitution) etc.

            What’s your game & why do you hate the Constitution and country? If you want to live under a dictator, Cuba isn’t that far away!

          • AKLady

            Impeachment is not a “crime,” as such..
            It is the “punishment” for a crime.

          • podunk1

            You’re totally lost. Impeachment is an arraignment/prosecution process against an official, judge, etc., to remove them from office… best described in Article 1-3 and more pointedly as prescribed by Amendment 14 -3&4&5. Get a Webster dictionary & look up the definitions and synonyms… look them up if not understood… until you understand it. Use facts, not opinions.

          • AKLady2015

            Maybe you should learn what quotation marks indicate, besides someone’s words?

            Impeachment is a formal process in which an official is accused of unlawful activity. Removal from office comes after the hearing.

          • podunk1

            Weasel words about impeachment doesn’t change the fact that impeachment is all about probable cause due process FOR A CRIME that minimally meets the requirements of Article 2 Section 3 “…he shall take care that the Laws be faithfully executed…”, ETC.! 2nd oath allegiance by every individual within congress and the judiciary certainly demands carrying out that process without any reservation, especially with concise blunt Supreme Laws such as Amendment 1 backed up by 14-1&3&4&5… 3 “No (oath bound) person shall … hold any office… (who has) engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”, Section 4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…” The 2 key words are “engaged in” and the mandate bans holding ANY US OFFICE

            Followed by “congress may by 2/3 vote remove that disability (impeachment)… and 5 “The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”!

            The question is, if Obama, Scotus, or any congressperson uses their official powers to attack Constitutional authority or law, why is supreme law not enforced. The answer is as the defining words “betrayal of allegiance” by all who are allegiance bound!

          • podunk1

            Your implied lies are accepted as the lies and deception you spew! What I stated is copied from the Constitution, not my opinion… and it is supreme law where anything to the contrary “notwithstanding” (Article 6) applies to Obama, Soros, and all progressive RINO democrats EQUALLY AND INDIVIDUALLY!

            Wake up! If your congresspersons aren’t defending the Constitution against treason, file charges against them in your jurisdiction with demand for due process prosecution (in every court in the USA). I can’t name one that is… Can you??

          • AKLady

        Elect Hillary? She should be tarred and feathered, then jailed. The same for Obama and the rest of what you said. They have destroyed America!!

        • podunk1

          And…We agree 100% on that… with the addition of McConnell, Reid, Boehner/Ryan, Pelosi, and the entire congress for absolute contemptible rebellion for aiding, abetting, comforting, and joining enemies to destroy the Constitution and country, by betraying allegiance to protect and preserve “it”!!!

  • reggie

    Good for Trump. Those men and women are in the cross-hairs every day. They deserve a lot more than they’re getting, in the way of protections, the additional staff requested. We need them, make no mistake about it.
