They know just how bad the border situation is and who is likely to fix it.
Donald Trump scored an endorsement on Monday from a union that represents thousands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, and has never before publicly backed a candidate for elected office.
In a statement released by the Trump campaign, National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council President Chris Crane said the union’s first-ever endorsement was conducted by a vote of its 5,000 members, who overwhelmingly supported Trump. Hillary Clinton received just 5 percent of that vote, according to Crane.
“Hillary Clinton, who has never met with us, and like President Obama probably never would, created her immigration agenda with the same collection of special interests and open-borders radicals who are responsible for our current immigration disaster — all in the name of cheap labor, greed and votes,” Crane said.
In contrast, the union said Trump contacted Crane to set up a meeting where they discussed the Republican presidential nominee’s “goals for enforcement,” and his pledge “to support ICE officers, our nation’s laws and our members.”
