The largest union local representing Border Patrol declared that Donald Trump was the “only candidate” to support agents’ mission.

Mr. Trump is the only candidate that has publicly expressed his support of our mission and our agents,” said a statement from Art Del Cueto, president of Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents 18,000 agents. 

“He has been an outspoken candidate on the need for a Secure Border and for this we are grateful,” the statement said, the Washington Examiner reported

The union stopped short of endorsing Trump, who is the Republican frontrunner.

“The American public has continually called for a secure border and Donald Trump has promised to make this desire a reality. His campaign has expressed an interest in a Border Patrol’s Agent’s perspective and a tour of our border, that we will gladly provide,” Del Cueto wrote. 

Trump has talked tough about the border and insists that he’s going to build a wall with money from Mexico.
