Unions for Border Patrol, ICE Don’t Back Down from Endorsing Trump

While many people who have endorsed Donald Trump for president have withdrawn their support over the candidate’s vulgar comments about women, the National Border Patrol Council and Customs Enforcement Council have not.

The unions have said they support Trump because of his tough stance on the nation’s borders and immigration laws.

Their failure to rescind the endorsement has prompted some backlash, including from a Washington Post columnist who wrote, “If his racist, misogynistic, narcissistic campaign does win, two unions representing thousands of federal law enforcement officers will have been accomplices.”

The NBPC released this statement about enforcing Trump on March 31: “Mr. Trump is correct when he says immigration wouldn’t be at the forefront of this presidential campaign if months ago he hadn’t made some bold and necessary statements. And when the withering media storm ensued he did not back down one iota. That tells you the measure of a man. When the so-called experts said he was too brash and outspoken, and that he would fade away, they were proven wrong. We are confident they will be proven wrong again in November when he becomes President of the United States.”

WASHINGTON — Will John Pistole, the FBI deputy director nominated to lead the TSA, go the way of the previous two nominees?

Let’s hope not, but it all depends upon whether certain Republicans intend to embarrass themselves – again – by demanding answers from Pistole that he simply will not be in a position to answer. I am speaking here of the unionization issue.

Don’t get me wrong. I am no friend of unions. I was delighted to watch the internal combustion that occurred when the unions sunk millions into the Arkansas Senate election in an effort to hand pick a pro-union candidate.
