Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, which has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, stated that Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection R. Gil Kerlikowske is a commissioner “who is more political than ever” and immigration laws are being “carved out” ” by policy, where Border Patrol agents are basically letting everyone we catch out the door” on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Moran said that border security is a “clear and present danger.” He added, “I think the American people don’t understand the full breadth of this problem. We have a president who has appointed a commissioner of Customs and Border Protection who is more political than ever, and they have carved out our immigration laws, by policy, where Border Patrol agents are basically letting everyone we catch out the door. So, that’s not border security. We need a president who understands the problem, who is going to put the right political appointees in there, and who is going to let Border Patrol agents go out and enforce the law.”
