Morale among downtrodden Border Patrol agents has risen recently, thanks to the unwavering support of President Donald Trump, says Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council.
Judd’s group represents 16,000 Border Patrol agents. These officers have been viciously smeared by the left-wing media and by open-borders Democrats like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who call them “Nazis.”
“Morale is looking up greatly, but strictly because we have a president that supports the mission that we do,” Judd told Alabama radio station WVNN. “He supports the agents. He supports border security. Those are the factors that create a good environment for agents.”
Judd added: “You would think that with the attacks that we’ve had by people like AOC calling us ‘Nazis,’ comparing us to a group that killed 6 million Jews, you would think that morale would be in the tank. But when you have a president that has our back and supports our mission, morale is going to go up. This is one of the first years in the last couple that we’ve been able to keep more agents that we’ve lost to attrition.”
Tonight @nedryun responded to AOC’s absurd border comparison. He said “To say that’s the moral equivalent of what the Nazi’s did of forcing Jews into concentration camps and then gassing millions of them to death. It’s insulting and it diminishes the horrors of the Holocaust” pic.twitter.com/qLdmeqyA3q

The Democrats’ open-borders policy is encouraging more mass illegal immigration and violence toward Border Patrol agents who are merely doing their jobs. The media continues to demonize ICE and Border Patrol agents as racist white supremacists, even though 52% of them are Hispanic.
This racist rhetoric from the left-wing media and Democratic lawmakers like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is fomenting violence against Border Patrol and ICE agents.
As BizPac Review reported, a horde of 50 illegal immigrants punched and kicked Border Patrol agents while trying to sneak across the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas in July.
A Border Patrol official said, “The combative individuals began assaulting the officers by punching, kicking, and attempting to grab the officers’ protective devices.”
While the Left is blaming President Trump for the illegal immigration crisis, Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council said “it was under the Obama administration that this crisis exploded.”
Judd added: “The Democratic administration was never really on top of border security. And it was because of that that we got to where we are. ”
But thanks to President Trump, Judd said “we’re able to put the handcuffs back on the bad guys. We’re able to put the handcuffs on the illegal aliens — the ones that are knowingly violating our laws even though the far left are inviting them to violate those laws. But because we’re able to do that, morale has gone back up.”
Meanwhile, agents on the ground continue to be assaulted by illegal immigrants and are urging Congress to build a wall to prevent further attacks.
