Border Patrol Union Pres: MSNBC Report Showed Why We Need the Wall
President of the National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd said this is "proof positive" that we need to ramp up security along the U.S.-Mexico border.
"Imagine if there wasn't a [fence] there. Imagine how many people would have come across," Judd said on "Fox & Friends First." "We need the wall."
He said Trump is following through on his promise to secure the border and keep Americans safe, but he doesn't get any credit from the left because they are playing politics.
He said the we don't need a "Great Wall of the United States" stretching across the entire border, but instead a wall in strategic locations that allows the Border Patrol to dictate where illegal border crossings will take place.
"If we're able to dictate, then we'll be a lot more successful in being able to apprehend those that cross the border illegally," Judd explained.
He added that he's encouraged to see companies building wall prototypes and competing for contracts to build the wall.
"This is the business aspect of President Trump," Judd said. "We've never seen something where they're actually getting a bunch of companies to come out and make bids and put their own money into these prototypes. This is the business mind that he brought to the United States, and the public is happy with it."
