Border Patrol Chief: Impending Immigration Compromise Shows 'Brilliance of Businessman' Trump
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said Saturday that President Trump's business acumen is leading him to an impending success on immigration reform.
Judd dismissed Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who claim the president's plans are a white nationalist ploy.
"They're absolutely incorrect," he said.
Judd said Trump's plan to have a border wall in exchange for assenting to Democrats' demands that the 1.8 million DACA recipients here illegally will have a "pathway to citizenship" is a good compromise.
Thank you to Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council for his strong statement on @foxandfriends that we very badly NEED THE WALL. Must also end loophole of “catch & release” and clean up the legal and other procedures at the border NOW for Safety & Security reasons.

"What you're seeing is the brilliance of a businessman that we elected into the office of president," Judd said. "There's nothing racist about securing our borders."
Judd criticized the last major immigration reform measure, undertaken by President Ronald Reagan and in Congress by former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) and former Rep. Romano Mazzoli (D-Ky.).
He called that reform the "Amnesty of 1986," noting that the government never followed up with their legalization of persons with meaningful security measures.
