Border Patrol Council Pres Claims 2020 Dems Are ‘Dead Wrong’ About Deportations Making America ‘Less Safe’

National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) President Brandon Judd called those who claimed deportations make Americans less safe “dead wrong.”

Several 2020 Democrats took to Twitter and the campaign trail to claim that President Donald Trump’s mass deportations were going to make America “less safe.” Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke said:

“What Donald Trump is doing today across this country in the name of safety and security will make us less safe,” said O’Rourke.

Trump faced similar criticisms from Sens. Amy Kloubuchar (D-Minn.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), as well as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.).

During an interview on “America’s Newsroom” on Fox News, Judd claimed these Democrats were “dead wrong” about the effectiveness of these deportations.

Watch Judd’s comments:

“They’re dead wrong. We saw these raids taking place under the Obama Administration and they had a direct correlation to the number of people crossing our borders illegally. So now that President Trump is doing it, of course these 2020 candidates are going to come out and decry that these are bad, that they’re racist, that we shouldn’t be doing them. But in reality, we didn’t hear a peep out of them when the Obama Administration was performing the exact same raids.”

As he alluded, former President Barack Obama deported more illegal immigrants than any president in U.S. history, earning him the title of “Deporter-in-Chief.”

Judd also addressed criticisms that President Trump’s announcement about the raids was counterproductive, noting that the administration sees deportations as a deterrent for those in Central America still considering the journey to the United States.

“President Trump, he signaled that this was going to take place so that everybody would understand that we are going to go after those individuals that have defied their orders of deportation by an immigration judge,” Judd said.

As for the deportations themselves, Judd signaled that the operation has been going “very well,” despite the national “pushback” from those in sanctuary cities and states.

If they are intended to keep us safe, WHY is Trump not having them in Republican cities? WHY was he not concerned about the safety of R’s? WHY just D’s??? No one else sees a disconnect there? His base is not in Democrat urban areas. Odd message to send to his loyal supporters.

As usual, Bozo O’Rourke doesn’t have a clue about what his mouth is saying because his brain should know better. The usual disconnect there. We’ll wait because in 24 hours or less, he’ll change his tune. (I am thinking he’s closely related to Flip Flop Biden.)
