The National Border Patrol Council enthusiastically endorsed President Trump’s executive orders on refugees on Sunday.
The union, which represents border patrol officers and immigration and customs enforcements, released a statement yesterday which clarifies their stance on the recent executive action.
Check it out (via Daily Mail):
‘Morale amongst our agents and officers has increased exponentially since the signing of the orders,’ the statement read.
‘The men and women of ICE and Border Patrol will work tirelessly to keep criminals, terrorists, and public safety threats out of this country, which remains the number one target in the world – and President Trump’s actions now empower us to fulfill this life saving mission, and it will indeed save thousands of lives and billions of dollars.’
The order specifically singled out refugees from Syria, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and Sudan.
The NBPC typically remains nonpartisan in the face of political issues.
This step on behalf of their agents has been described as “unprecedented.”
