Illegal immigration plummeted in 2017 due to the “Trump Effect” – but, that effect has been lost due to lack of follow-through by Congress and federal agencies, National Border Patrol Council (NPBC) President Brandon Judd said Sunday.

On Fox News Channel, Judd, who heads the national border agents’ union, reacted to the weekend’s surge of illegal aliens across the southern border into the U.S.:

“Frankly, we have to follow through on President Trump’s rhetoric. The border patrol, in 2017, we saw these huge drops – and the border patrols, they affectionately call it the ‘Trump Effect.'

“Well, that ‘Trump Effect’ is now gone, because the agencies and the Obama hold-overs, they haven’t followed through on his vision.”

What’s more, there’s no excuse for Congress’ failure to act to protect America from the dangers of illegal immigration, Judd said:

“The Republicans control the House and the Senate: they do not need the Democrat support to pass any laws they want. They can go the “Nuclear Option” just like what they did on the confirmation. They need to pass laws and end the catch-and-release program.”

If Congress fails to fulfill Trump’s vision, more Americans will die at the hands of illegal aliens, Judd warned:

“They’re going to create havoc and chaos. I mean, how many times do we have to hear stories of United States citizens being killed by people who are here illegally before we actually do something?”
