President Obama’s executive action on immigration will have a “dramatic impact” on Border Patrol agents, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) told Breitbart Texas.
Shawn Moran, Vice President of the NBPC, told Breitbart Texas, “This issue will obviously have a dramatic impact on rank-and-file Border Patrol agents.”
Obama’s order will directly affect some 5 million migrants currently in the United States. These illegal aliens will not only be protected from deportation, but will also be allowed to work and entered into the U.S. tax system. Obama’s announcement applies to immigrant with U.S. citizen children, and also to many who entered the nation as a minor.
Moran said that NBPC needs more time to analyse the executive order before discussing, specifically, how it will affect Border Patrol agents and the way they do their jobs.
“We are reserving in-depth comment at this time,” he said. “The National Border Patrol Council is currently analyzing the Executive Order and until we receive guidance from the administration and Customs and Border Protection, it would be premature for us to comment.”
