Border Patrol Union President Praises Trump - Cites 'Miraculous' Drop In Illegal Immigration

Content originally published at

A sharp dropoff in the number of illegal border crossers coming into the United States from Mexico is "nothing short of miraculous," National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told C-SPAN on Monday.

As far as the Trump administration's efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on.

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.  -Brandon Judd

Judd went on to say that Trump's two Executive Orders instructing border agents to fully carry out laws is in sharp contrast to the Obama administration, which kept agents from performing their sworn duties.

The Washington Examiner reports a 53% decrease in apprehensions at the Southwest border compared to last year - a 6 year low:

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency on Friday reported a huge drop in arrests along the Southwest border, a likely result of President Trump's aggressive effort to stop illegals from entering the nation and deport those with criminal records.

The agency said that apprehensions dropped 53 percent from a year ago. The number also includes those deemed inadmissible.

The NBPC President added that a southern border wall was necessary for select parts of the border, however he added that the entire border between the U.S. and Mexico does not need a full fence.

The Department of Homeland Security has been given $1.6 billion towards the wall - which, according to a report in the Texas Observer, is well underway.

Somalian Muslim police officer leaves his body camera off when riding to 911 call and then shoots to kill white lady who initiated 911 call and who was talking to the driver of his police car.  Muslim policeman murdering white lady.  SHARIA LAW? Urban dictionary says "lmmo" means "laughing my mustache off".  How can a person be an "lmmo"?So, I don't understand your post.  However, God bless the South.

Speaking of Somali's, trump has done exactly jack shit to stop bringing people they call 'refugees' in from that part of the world. We are still importing migrants from that part of the world, and all of these CRs they keep passing while they claim they are working on a real budget include every single penny these refugee resettlement groups were getting under Obama. I seem to rememer Obama gleefully reminding people that hese quotas were at the presidents discretion only, so why aren't they at '0' under trump's discretion?

Normally I don't like off-topic spam of unrelated articles. But in this case I'll make an exception.This is ObaMao's "legacy" right here. Muslim Brotherhood infiltration, leading to hate crimes perpetrated by racist muzzie nigger 'refugee' cops.Definitely under-reported in the gaslight tabloids (MSM). This story needs to be out there.

I think the somali immigration part is sort of a connection. These peole don't belong here but were granted almost immediate green cards or a quasi-citizenship under the Kenyan's muslim rule. They should be rounded up and returned to their homeland where they belong.Who in their right mind would down vote you unless it's an NPR troll or a somali who reads english and zh?

"Sort of a connection"... every Somali in MN is either a pre-war immigrant or a 'refugee'.

"He came to the United States at a young age and is thankful to have had so many opportunities," Plunkett said in the statement.… is 31, too young to be a pre-war immigrant. Possibly came in the 90s wave of Somali civil war refugees.Don't know about the downvote, don't really care. Lots of ppl downvote me on certain topics ;) Some just downvote every post in threads they don't like. This one is probably a MUH MUH RAYCISS downvote.Kill 'em all, let Odin sort 'em out.

I'd go farther and require immigrants to have a provable experience in a required skill that is useful to the country. We were a nation of immigrants when there were planty of factories to work in, but until the US re-industrializes, those coming here must have a useful and provable skill. Also, immigrants over the last eight years were let in when they carried communicable diseases. Even at Ellis Island, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, immigrants were checked for disease and quarantined when necessary.

And as soon as Big Agra stops dumping the dark chicken meat and animal byproductsWhites are too hoiti toiti to touch with their lace-gloved hands, and as soon as Big Agrastops dumping the GMO feed corn that the rest of the world is resisting importation of,then maybe, maybe, the decimated Mexican and Central American farming economy willrevive, and we won't have a domino-effect rippling outward from Venezuala to Colombiaup the cordilleras through Mexico and into the SouthWest, Texas and California et al.Do I believe this might happen? Do you think the Chinese will stop dumping in the US?Not bloody likely. Enjoy Venezuela's collapse. That will be the USA before Trump bails.MAAAAAAAGAAAAAAA!!! The sound of the mating Trumpbot. MAAAAAAAGAAAAAAA!!! And as far as your White bullshit about communicable diseases, 77,000,000 foreignersfly right over the border in and out of the USA every year without any medical checkup,only slightly less than the 95,000,000 jobless or homeless Americans who won't be ableto get a medical checkup under TrumpDon'tCare.

Somewhere in there is a point, but you might try properly formatting your post. If you cite a credible source, that helps too. Ppl from the third world don't come here for no reason. I agree that one would not have to look very far to find some bass-ackwards policy emanating from .gov that has in someway so compromised the third worlder they are forced to come here. Of course, much of the third world is totally screwed up by default because third world brains produce a third world result, so they come here to get a piece of the first world (euro-ancestry created/inspired) pie, something they could never pull off for the utter lack of capacity.Mexicans flooding into the US might have as an excuse something you allude to. Surely there are some facts on the ground to give some support to your thesis. Still, it is not likely the whole story. The Mexican government is very corrupt, and considering the drug lords running around stealing gasoline like they do, it's looking like mad max, and that can also have something to do with northerly migration.As far as your comment about Obama being the king of deportation, I am pretty sure if you parse the data it will draw a very different picture. Obama was very lax when it came to enforcing immigration law. In fact, he practically gave away green cards and citizenships like candy. I know this first hand having worked in that area. Considering how easy it was to establish legal residency here, it is a wonder why anybody would waste their time taking the illegal route.

Obama deported FAR MORE illegals than Bush Jr,and the Orange Don and his pals in Congress haveall said they want 100% unlimited immigration,they'll just have to pay the bribe to become 'legal'.Go hang around the airports, it's ~2/3rd foreigners.Only the really poor from Central America walk in,those whose lives were destroyed by US Big Agradumping meat/corn at below production price SOTB.The more you know, the more what you read in theTrump Twitters and Congressional spew is revolting.

All we need to do is take an old supertanker, fit it for use as a mass transport, and start weekly cruises to Veracruz like we used to. I am certain that our Mexican friends would be happy to start enforcing their southern border when we dump a few hundred thousand people on them per month for them to sort out and return to their countries of origin, not to mention the "enrichment" they will receive.

It always cracks me up how commies price all of the little brown people out of an area and then whine about the lack of diversity. Since I get to live with "The Diversity" in one of those area where nary a college-indoctrinated commie would venture, I have a slightly different view. Mrs. UndertheDRADIS loses her mind when:

  • "The Diversity" parks beat up delivery trucks on the street in front of Chez UndertheDRADIS.
  • "The Diversity" litters their paleta wrappers and cheap beer cans in front of Chez UndertheDRADIS, or on Mrs. UndertheDRADIS' recently-mowed lawn.
  • "The Diversity" leaves cleaning tools and other paraphernalia in front of their garishly-painted homes.

As Herself has often pointed out. "We ain' getting the primera gente."

This news has to inflame the shit out of the Libtards. I can see Obama now; cursing at the TV and asking Michelle how things could have been reversed so quickly.

Success breeds success. With less people coming across the border that means more being deported from inside the country.In about 1-2 years people everywhere will notice that crime will be down, rents will be lower, and jobs will once again start to show up in all kinds of places and a 40 hour work week with better wages will result.  There will be significantly less children in schools and welfare roles will start to shrink.If they start to arrest employers who hire the workers, about 50% of all illegals will be gone in 1-2 years. 

Knave Dave Tue, 07/18/2017 - 02:10 Permalink

It just goes to show if you actually enforce your laws, they means something. Obama intentionally and constantly baited aliens to cross the border illegally by telling the world he'd do everything he could to help them stay and slow down the deportaton process, etc. As a result, illegal immigration soared during his term.

So if one simply enforces the law the law has force and compels compliance? What an interesting idea. I still like the idea of nailing management and boards of directors who turn a blind eye at false documentation. How about arresting city councils for serving as accomplices to human trafficking and drug smuggling? I seem to remember that after the Republicans explained to the Democrats that they were not allowed to own human beings that the legislatures attempted to make "sanctuary states" where the former slaves would be kept in serfdom. Strangely enough, the Union Army showed up an surrounded the capitol buildings.
