In an interview with Fox News this weekend, Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd criticized Greyhound for their new policy prohibiting border agents from boarding their buses in search of illegal aliens. Judd said the policy would only put American lives in danger while protecting those who have no business in the United States in the first place.
“I look at the reason that Greyhound gave – ‘the safety of its employees and its passengers,’” sneered Judd. “I question, what about the safety of the American people at large?”
Greyhound made the announcement last week, caving to left-wing advocates who have pressured transportation companies to deny ICE and border officials access to their passengers. Border agents have made it a practice to board these buses near the border and ask the passengers about their immigration statuses. While videos of these stops have angered immigration rights groups, the practice itself has proven to be a valuable tool for federal law enforcement.
Judd said that surveying Greyhound passengers has allowed border agents to apprehend violent criminals before they can assimilate into the country.
“I’ve personally gone onto a Greyhound bus and arrested an individual that was convicted for sexually molesting a young child. What about that young child, those people that are preyed upon?” he asked. “How about sex trafficking? We know that sex traffickers will exploit every opportunity that they’re given and if federal agents can’t go on the bus and start searching people…”
Fox News host Pete Hegseth lamented that Greyhound was basically creating “sanctuary buses” in the mold of sanctuary cities.
“You hit the nail on the head,” Judd said. “That’s how it’s going to go. And smugglers are going to exploit this policy that Greyhound has put into place.”
Has there ever been another country this obsessed with preventing the government from enforcing the law? Has there ever been another country where the urge to protect illegal immigrants has been this strong? Why is America unique in having this population of left-wing bleeding hearts who would rather see criminals go free and our culture destroyed than actually say, “NO! You can’t just come here because you feel like it, sorry.” It’s mind blowing.
There are people suffering under adverse economic conditions all around the world. Why should Latin Americans be the only ones privileged to leave it all behind for the glorious United States? Why, just because of our proximity, should we allow in every Honduran, Mexican, Guatemalan refugee who wants to make the hike? Why is enforcing a basic, simple law the height of racism and cruelty?
We’ll never quite get it. #BoycottGreyhound.
