Border Patrol union chief praises ‘miraculous’ drop in illegal immigration under Trump

July 18, 2017

Illegal ImmigrantsThe significant downturn in the number of illegal border crossers between the U.S. and Mexico is “nothing short of miraculous,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said on C-SPAN Monday.

“As far as the Trump administration’s efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on,” he said. “At six months, where we are on meeting those promises, we are seeing nothing short of miraculous. If you look at the rhetoric that President Trump has given, it has caused a number of illegal border crossings to go down. We have never seen such a drop that we currently have.”

“There’s a vibe, there’s an energy in the Border Patrol that’s never been there before in 20 years that I’ve been in the patrol,” Judd added in a separate Fox News interview.

This month, Customs and Border Protection reported a 53 percent decrease in the number of apprehensions at the southwest border since last year. The number also includes those deemed inadmissible. CBP sees apprehensions as a proxy for how many people are trying to cross the border, and says the drop in apprehensions indicates a drop in attempted illegal crossings.

    Stop ALL freebies,E Verify, Fine any employer that hires them ,and Do away with the stupid ANCHOR stupidity and make it retroactive.

    Look what happens when laws are enforced. Maybe with Susan Rice being indicted and Obama people arrested things will get better. MAGA

  • Richard Bagenstose says:

    see what even enforcing the law a little can do, now how about enforcing all our laws , we don’t need new laws , we need to enforce the ones we have , why do we pay for all this government when it seems no one is doing their jobs

  • Jmanjo says:

    Now if they would raise the ante on what could happen to you if you harbor an illegal alien you would see another huge reduction. Jobs would go up especially in Hollywood because the liberal actors would loose their cheap underpaid illegal alien employees (or hostages) and have to hire Americans!

    Had this happened under Obama it would have been labeled fake news and people would say he cooked the numbers. The number could be correct but it’s a little hard to believe that with no more agents then before you would see this kind of drop. I guess if you you make things bad enough people will stop coming. So does this mean we don’t need a wall?

    1. Bob says:

      What a crock. These numbers came from Border Patrol, not the Admin. Obama WOULD have cooked the numbers. It’s what he did. The reason for the drop is they KNOW under this administration they WILL be sent back, not coddled here until the press demands they be allowed to stay. The days of the “boomerang” border crossing are numbered, if not over. You are probably incensed about the number of Coyotes that have been put out of business and want to send them aid. And, yes, we do need the wall, preferably with you on the other side.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        As I said if Obama had given the same numbers it would have outraged people as fake. Under the last president all numbers coming from any agency were not trusted. This President has a history of playing fast and loose with numbers but you trust his numbers 100%. I’m not saying the numbers are wrong, I’m just questioning putting faith in them when they come from a group that supported Trump in the last election. Did you notice that it was the Union that presented the numbers? I have found that if something is to good to be true it usually isn’t.

          Never said I trusted this number 100%, but I would not believe Obama if he told me night was dark. Maybe if I saw it on You Tube…

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Of course you would trust Obama if he told you it was dark at night because you would need to hear it from someone like Trump. The thought of looking out your window would never occur to you.

          2. Bob says:

            “Of course you would trust Obama if he told you it was dark at night…” Irrelevant statement as I already said I would not trust him to, nor would I need him to tell me it was dark. Unlike Liberals, I have the power of observation. I don’t need to be told what to see and think. And neither would I need a tele-prompter to, uh…uh…uh, tell me.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            You trust Trump a convicted liar. Amazing. Oh did you know why Trump doesn’t like tele-prompters, he has problems reading. He also has problems remembering what he said. Don’t take my word for it check it out.

          4. Bob says:

            Reading comprehension was never taught at the reform school you went to, was it? I never said I trusted Trump to tell me it was dark. I never mentioned Trump at all, at least not in this string. YOU are the Trump obsessed one. YOU are the one who bring him in to anything. I would bet if McDonalds ran out of McNuggets when you were ordering them it would be Trump’s fault because he had a White Russian at Mar-A-Lago last weekend. (And, for the record, I do trust Trump more than Obama. But by that same token I would trust Jon Lovitz’s Tommy Flanagan more than Obama.)

      Right back to your BS aren’t you BSBob. The numbers are real a$$ hole and they don’t come from the administration. Unlike the Obama jobless numbers that where admitted to be false. You’re a complete idiot and a complete a$$ hole. Put your head back in your a$$ and just go away. A$$ hole!
