With the process to build the wall along the Mexican-American border underway President Trump is going to need all the help he can get. Which is why it is great that he has Hector Garza.
Garza is the president of the nation’s largest Border Patrol union. It is stationed on the border between the two countries. He will be a valuable asset to have moving forward.
Not only is Garza a border patrol agent, but he is also the head of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 near Laredo, Texas. President Trump campaigned on the promise of building the wall to deter illegal immigration. However, his new comments indicate he will have it paid for by American taxpayers through tariffs and have Mexico reimburse us another way.
Garza indicated that Border Patrol agents are welcoming his willingness to work with them to face the problem of illegal immigration. Which is much different than what President Obama did. Garza insisted that he does not expect the two thousand mile stretch to be entirely covered. He said,
“We will have is a wall where it is needed. That barrier, with proper manpower, resources, technology and other tools, will be effective. Now, we have a president that not only acknowledges the problems. During the previous administration, we had a president that failed to acknowledge the problems on the border.”
Unlike the former President who had a policy of catch and release that incentivized illegal immigration, the new administration will take a much harsher stance. This is a radical change in policy and it appears the Trump administration will have a lot of support. Shawn Moran of the National Border Patrol Council said,
“We have had eight years of finding excuses and reasons and loopholes to allow people to be walked out the front door of border patrol stations. We’re encouraged that every sign we’ve seen shows that is going to stop.”
The days of being walked all over and taken advantage of are finished. Clearly, the relationship between Border Patrol and the Trump administration is far greater than was ever depicted. America will get its respect back again.
