And we couldn’t agree with them more! The head of one of America’s largest Border Patrol union locals said in an interview that the wall would “be effective.” This is coming from the people who see the border day in and day out. They know how big of a problem we have. They know that it’s gone on long enough.
Hector Garza is president of National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 in Laredo, Texas, as well as a Border Patrol agent himself. He told Breitbart he welcomes a president who is willing to address problems with illegal immigration, even if the physical wall that the Trump administration erects does cover every foot of ground between the U.S. and Mexico.
“We know we won’t have a wall along the 2,000 miles of border,” Garza said. “What we will have is a wall where it is needed. That barrier, with proper manpower, resources, technology and other tools, will be effective. But most important, for the first time we have a president that wants to secure the border.
“During the previous administration, we had a president that failed to acknowledge the problems on the border. Now, we have a president that not only acknowledges the problems, but is willing to give us the tools needed to address them.”
Perhaps more important than the wall is the Trump administration’s decision to end the “catch-and-release” policy of the Obama administration, that sometimes put dangerous criminals free on the streets of America.
