GOP presidential candidate and frontrunner Donald Trump spoke exclusively with Breitbart Texas on the most recent far left attacks against the organization representing over 80 percent of the Border Patrol agents who protect U.S. borders. The group, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), gave their first-ever endorsement during a presidential primary to Trump and now far left efforts are under way to have the group excommunicated and to end their affiliation with a larger union organization.
Trump told Breitbart Texas, “I will always have the backs of the Border Patrol agents who protect America. I know they will never be intimidated by any bullies trying to push them out of the AFL-CIO, and I will never back down from supporting them and fighting for them every day. Together, we will end illegal immigration and save America.”
A prominent extreme open borders group, Not1More, began an effort to smear Border Patrol agents and get them booted from their association with the AFL-CIO, as Breitbart Texas reported.
The NBPC has presented a unique challenge to the groups promoting a secured border, largely due to border security advocates having a tendency to be anti-union. That said, anti-union right-of-center groups would have no information to support their efforts for border security were it not for the efforts of the largely conservative NBPC.
