The leader of the Border Patrol’s union suggested to Fox News that drug cartels should “pressure” migrant caravans out of coming to the United States.
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd began the segment by saying agents are “excited” that President Donald Trump is sending troops to defend the border against the caravans of Latin American migrants making their way north through Mexico.
“He’s been forced to come up with innovative solutions,” Judd explained, “and the readily available solution for us is the military.”
This move, the Border Patrol union chief added, is “going to cut into the cartels’ profits and that could force the cartels to put pressure on these caravans not to continue to come.”
Last week, Fox News’ Jesse Watters claimed the Latin American migrants in the caravans rely on cartels to “smuggle” them into the United States.
“The drug cartels [are] basically acting like toll booth operators for America,” Watters said during the October 22 segment.
