Saratoga, New York – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik was endorsed by the National Border Patrol Council for her staunch advocacy for law enforcement and strong borders. The endorsement hails her as “the strongest member” to share the message of strengthening border security and protecting American communities. Breitbart broke the news here and you can read the full statement from President for the National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd below. 

“As President Biden’s policies continue to create the worst surge in illegal immigration in our history, it is more important than ever for our leaders to share a unified message in Congress on the importance of border security. Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is the strongest member to share and grow our message of securing our border and protecting our communities. 
“Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with and developing relationships with a great many elected officials. I have been impressed by some and underwhelmed by others. I am happy to say Congresswoman Stefanik easily fits into the first category. She is one of the most ardent supporters of the Border Patrol’s mission as well as law enforcement generally. 

“Her efforts both legislatively and behind the scenes have kept illegal drugs and dangerous criminals from flooding our communities. Representative Stefanik supports funds to build the wall, technology to augment the Border Patrol’s capabilities, and more resources for the men and women on the front lines. I am truly grateful to say in the strongest possible terms that Elise opposes policies that have been so dangerous for our communities such as sanctuary cities, licenses for illegal immigrants and public assistance for those who chose to violate our immigration laws (the magnets that draw people and encourage them to cross our borders illegally). She also opposes amnesty for those whose very first act in coming to the U.S. was to knowingly and willingly cross our borders illegally. Representative Stefanik has been a true border security champion.  

“In short, Congresswoman Stefanik is a leader. She will protect the citizens of this great nation. 

“It is my honor to declare that the National Border Patrol Council is proud to stand with President Trump in endorsing Congresswoman Stefanik to be the Chairwoman of the House GOP Conference. She is the right leader at the right time.”
