Border Patrol Union Supports Trump

Border Patrol
Who knows better about the problem on the American borders than the border patrols. They have staked their lives in protecting the country's integrity from the lawless elements and illegal aliens trying to bleed the American economy for selfish reasons. And now, those border patrols had enough and made a laudable choice.

The largest union representing US border patrol officers just ditched last 30 March its longstanding policy of steering clear of endorsing presidential candidates to throw its support behind Republican Donald Trump.

In doing so, the National Border Control Council (NBCC) broke with the AFL-CIO, the largest federation of labor unions in the US, which has not yet endorsed a candidate. The union, which represents some 16,500 officers, has drawn support for its decision from several other groups, which are planning to follow NBCC's lead.

So far, the AFL-CIO has not responded to NPCC’s decision, or calls to remove them from its membership roster.

In its statement of support for Trump, the NPCC noted that the real-estate mogul is the only candidate—in either party—who isn’t a career politician, adding:
"There is no greater physical or economic threat to Americans today than our open border. And there is no greater political threat than the control of Washington by special interests. In view of these threats, the National Border Patrol Council endorses Donald J. Trump for President ... "
Hopefully, once Trump is elected, NPCC will have a direct line to the White House and receive support in its campaign against illegal aliens.
