Listen to Border Patrol union chief say Trump’s sanctuary cities plan is ‘brilliant’ and ‘absolutely legal’

With yet another migrant caravan of thousands of illegal immigrants marching on the southern border, the more the idea of sending detainees to sanctuary cities is mulled over, the more brilliant it seems to be.

Even National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd called it “brilliant,” but he also insists it’s “absolutely legal.”

While the open border left are busy clutching their pearl and denouncing President Donald Trump for considering the plan, Judd appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday to say the federal government can certainly transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities.

Judd was asked to respond to a clip of California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom saying of the idea, “It’s illegal, it’s immoral, it’s unethical, it’s sophomoric. It’s petulant and it’s par for the course.”

The union chief replied to say the proposal is “absolutely illegal.”


“I’m gonna get beaten up by the hard left for this comment, but this is actually a brilliant move on the president’s part,” Judd said. “There’s two layers to this: if he’s doing it for humanitarian purposes, he should be praised. These are cities that the city councils have consciously made a decision that they are going to accept these illegal aliens into their cities and they’re going to protect them — so if President Trump is sending them for that purpose then he should be praised.”

“If he’s doing it for political reasons, again this is absolutely brilliant,” he continued. “These people have to be released for one reason or another and if we’re going to have to release them, why not show these sanctuary cities the same pressure that other cities are feeling from the release.”

“From those two layers, this is a brilliant move,” Judd reiterated.

“Fox & Friends” co-host Pete Hegseth pointed out that “normally,” illegal immigrants are dropped off closer to where they are apprehended, before asking it’s okay for the government to bus or fly them to a further destination, in this case a sanctuary city.

Again, Judd said “it is absolutely legal.”

“There is nothing that he is doing that’s violating the law,” Judd said. “It’s not immoral, it’s not illegal, it’s not petulant. This is this is a move that frankly should be praised on both sides. But this is one of those unforced errors again, he’s showing the hypocrisy of the left — the left is saying that we want to accept these people, there should be open borders. But then, when it comes to accepting them in their own cities they’re saying no we don’t want them anymore. That’s the definition of hypocrisy.”

Firmly in the president’s corner, Judd said he has seen no serious proposals from the left.

“We have to look at the unforced errors from the left, they continue to make mistake after mistake after mistake and the American public is noticing this,” he said. “If they’re coming forth with proposals that would be one thing, but all they’re trying to do is stymie this president when he’s trying to protect the American public.

“I’ve sat down and I’ve spoken with him on multiple occasions and I can tell you all he wants to do is protect the American public. What’s wrong with that?”
