Members of the caravan from Central America climbed on top of the border fence (see video at the bottom of this article) at Tijuana, Mexico last weekend. The Border Patrol Union President considers this proof they have no regard for U.S. laws:
“These people have absolutely no regard for our laws. Them sitting on our fence, they are in the United States, so they made an illegal entry into the United States. They are sitting on our fence. This is a fence that we have to maintain. They have absolutely no regard for our property. They have absolutely no regard for our laws and a picture is worth a thousand words. Thank goodness that everybody is now seeing how these people act.”
Over the weekend, hundreds of caravan members set up camp on the Mexico side of the fence, just miles south of San Diego.
The group refused to leave after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials informed them they cannot process that many asylum seekers in a day, a move Judd said was done only because of President Trump’s instruction to end “catch-and-release” policies that were used during former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama’s administrations.
“Under the Obama administration, we just let anybody and everybody that came to the ports of entry, we would take them, we would process them. Then we would release them under the catch-and-release program which, of course, was the magnet that caused people to come to the United States and make illegal entries,”
“But, if somebody comes to the port and says, ‘I’m here for admittance. I’m legal, I can come in.’ Then you have to take them into custody and you have to process them,” he added. “The left-leaning outlets — the fake news if you will — what they are trying to do is trying to portray this as a legal process. Well, if you do it legally, the United States has the right to say, ‘Well, no, don’t come in this way.'”
Judd also said Democratic lawmakers would be smart to deal with Trump’s demands for a border wall and other security measures because the issue is a rallying cry among Republican voters.
