Illegal Immigration Is Not a ‘Victimless Crime’ – Just Look at Your Paycheck, Border Patrol Union Pres. Says

“When you look at enforcement at the border, this administration is a complete dumpster fire,” National Border Patrol Council Pres. Brandon Judd said Friday.

Discussing the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S. southwest border on Fox & Friends First, Judd said that the Biden Administration has a dangerous disinterest in the drugs and violent criminals illegally entering the U.S., because Democrats “want to appease their base”:

“When you look at enforcement at the border, this administration is a complete dumpster fire. It really doesn't care what is coming across the borders. And that concerns me, because we want to go after the criminality at the border, we want to go after the drugs that are flowing into the United States.

“But, if our hands are tied continuing to deal with these large groups of migrants coming across, the cartels are going to be able to push those drugs across and they are killing children in the inner cities, the suburbs, the rural areas. And, that’s really the problem and that is why everybody should be upset at this White House.

“They are doing nothing to stop all of the dangerous products that are coming across the border, because our hands are tied, because they want to appease their base.”

Illegal immigration is not a “victimless crime,” Judd responded, when asked about DHS Sec. Alejandra Mayorkas’ claim that illegal immigrants aren’t worth the trouble of removing them from the country, because they’re just hard-working farmhands breaking their backs to put food on the table.

After recalling the tragic death of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant, Judd told viewers to consider all the money that’s coming out of their paychecks to fund social programs and services for illegal aliens:

“They talk about illegal immigration as being a victimless crime and that is not true. Look at Kate Steinle.

“But, not just that: look at how much money of your taxes are coming out of your paycheck every single month. A lot of that money is because of the social programs, the social welfare that we have to give to those people that are coming to the country illegally.

“It is not a victimless crime. We have laws for a purpose; we need to enforce those laws. Secretary Mayorkas is dead wrong.”
