Border Patrol Agents Clear On Who They’re Supporting For President – ‘We Are Grateful’

The union for the 18,000 men and women who patrol America’s border has praised Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as the “only candidate” who supports their thankless work.

A statement from Art Del Cueto, president of Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council, said the union has a long-standing practice of not endorsing any presidential candidates, but wanted to make clear that Trump has a different perspective from other candidates.

“The National Border Patrol Council and Local 2544 are pleased to inform voters that Mr. Trump is the only candidate that has publicly expressed his support of our mission and our Agents,” the union statement said. “He has been an outspoken candidate on the need for a secure border and for this we are grateful.”

“The American public has continually called for a secure border and Donald Trump has promised to make this desire a reality,” the statement said, adding that the Trump campaign had asked about getting the perspective of a border patrol agent and taking a tour of the border, something the union would be pleased to do. “Donald Trump is the only candidate who has expressed this interest.”

“We are confident that the National Border Patrol Council’s longstanding message about the unsecured border and much needed support for our agents will be received well by Mr. Trump. The American public deserves to be secure in their own country and we encourage all voters to consider that candidate that has the political will to make it happen,” the statement said.

Trump also has the support of Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, famous for his tough stance against illegal  immigration. “He produces results,” Arpaio said in his endorsement of Trump.

The Trump Dream Team Candidates – This Could Be YUGE!

First, I believe that Trump is our generation’s Reagan. Reagan was also lightly regarded, laughed at by liberals, the media and the GOP establishment, considered unelectable and an intellectual lightweight, and someone whose finger could never be allowed near the nuclear button — until he won in two landslides and became a great president.

So here’s my advice for Trump moving forward.

It’s time for Donald Trump to act like Reagan, become presidential and unite the GOP.

It’s time to claim victory and start announcing the amazing “dream team” that this one-of-a-kind CEO will assemble to run the country and save the economy.

It’s time to praise the Republicans that Trump has been running against — and bring all their supporters into the Trump tent.

It’s time to show the country and the world how a billionaire CEO assembles a dream team.

It’s time to dazzle the other half of the electorate that doesn’t understand the amazing talents of Donald Trump.

If Trump shows he can be presidential and assemble an All-Star GOP Dream Team, I believe he is the next president of the United States. So here goes. Here’s a list of potential candidates that could dazzle and excite both the GOP base and the general electorate.


Vice President: Marco Rubio.

Rubio brings youth, energy and great orator skills to the table. He can attract Latino voters, soften Trump’s harsh image with women and minorities, and campaign day and night in Florida- thereby guaranteeing victory in THE key state that any Republican Presidential candidate must win. Rubio has a fantastic conservative voting record- with the exception of one issue: immigration. But the Vice President has nothing to do with immigration. Only President Trump is in charge of immigration policy. Rubio is therefore quite an asset.

Health Czar/Surgeon General: Dr. Ben Carson.

I’d make Dr. Ben the second most important member of the Trump Dream Team. His only job 24/7/365 will be to repeal & replace ObamaCare- as only the world’s most brilliant surgeon can. Dr. Ben will bring hope to millions of middle class Americans and small business owners (job creators) who have been badly hurt by ObamaCare, but also faith and confidence that the new option will work for everyone.

Attorney General: Rudy Guliani

Homeland Security Chief: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (if he can block a bridge, he can also seal the border)

ICE (Border & Customs): Sheriff Joe Arpaio (known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”)

Secretary of State: Mike Huckabee (everyone likes Mike — he is the perfect person to travel the world making peace through strength)

National Security Adviser: General Jack Keane

Defense: Allen West

Treasury: Mitt Romney

Fed Chief: Ron Paul (wouldn’t it fun to torture the people at The Fed who have printed all that fake money and put us $19 trillion in debt)

Commerce: Carly Fiorina

Debt Czar: John Kasich (he was the architect the last time Congress balanced the budget)

Council of Economic Advisers- Jack Welch, Carl Icahn, Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson, Phil Ruffin, Herman Cain, Stephen Moore, Art Laffer, Mark Skousen (a brilliant economist and Professor of Economics & Finance at Chapman University, formerly Economics Professor at Columbia Business School, Founder of FreedomFest, where Trump gave his first major speech as presidential candidate)

Labor: Scott Walker (he fought the unions in Wisconsin and won against-all-odds)

Energy: Sarah Palin (who else? Drill baby, drill)

Education: Bobby Jindal

Small Business Administration: Wayne Allyn Root (OK, I’m biased, but wouldn’t it be nice for first time in history to have a real-life small businessman as the leader in charge of helping small business?)

UN Ambassador: Jeb Bush (yes, I gave him an important role)

Next Supreme Court Justice: Judge Andrew Napolitano 

White House Press Secretary: Les Roediger 🙂

*NOTE: I purposely left both Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in the Senate — where they can do the most good…leading the battle in Congress to back President Trump’s fight to cut taxes, spending and debt, roll back regulations, and repeal ObamaCare.

Wayne Allyn Root is a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee, now back to the GOP. Wayne’s latest book is “The Murder of the Middle Class” (Regenery 2014).  For more, visit his website: Follow him on Twitter@WayneRoot.
