A statement has been released saying President Donald Trump has instilled a sense of pride into U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers.
Many of these officers are encouraged by Trump’s dedication to enforcing current immigration laws.
This is quite different than how they felt under the previous administration.
Per the Daily Caller:
Now that ICE agents no longer fear the scourge from officials bent on providing cover for illegals, the unions for ICE and Border Patrol noted that morale has skyrocketed.
“As representatives of the nation’s frontline immigration officers and agents responsible for enforcing our laws and protecting our borders, we fully support and appreciate President Trump’s swift and decisive action to keep the American people safe and allow law enforcement to do its job,” the statement read. “Morale amongst our agents and officers has increased exponentially since the signing of the orders.”
The President is also looking to increase the number of people involved in securing the border:
Trump said he wants to hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents and 10,000 more ICE officers.
