PHOENIX — The National Border Patrol Council today endorsed Martha McSally for United States Senate. The Council represents 16,000 border patrol agents and support staff.
In March of 2016, the National Border Patrol Council also endorsed President Trump in his primary.
Martha McSally chairs the homeland security subcommittee and is one of nine members of Congress who represents a border district. She continues to fight in Congress for more resources to combat illegal immigration, build the wall and secure the border. Border Patrol agents are key to this mission.
“Martha McSally is working with President Trump to secure the southern border and protect Arizonans,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council. “Martha has a proven track-record of tackling the tough issues, and isn’t afraid of a fight. She knows the value of our border patrol agents, and has fought to provide them with the resources they need to do their job and keep Arizonans safe. She’ll bring the same grit and tenacity to the United States Senate.”
“Martha McSally is working with President Trump to keep Arizonans safe,” said Art Del Cueto, president of Local 2544. “Martha has fought since she was elected to secure our border and get border patrol agents the resources they need to do their jobs. She gets the job done, and that’s why the National Border Patrol Council is endorsing her in Arizona’s Senate race. She is the only candidate in this race who is working with President Trump to secure the border and protect Arizonans.”
“The Border Patrol does so much to keep our nation safe, and as Arizona’s next Senator, I will keep working with President Trump to make sure they have all the resources they need to do their job,” said Congresswoman Martha McSally. “The Border Patrol works in rugged terrain and in remote areas. It’s dangerous work and an often thankless job. They’re faced with threats of cartels and assaults that can result in death or bodily harm. I’ve got their back, and I’ve got the back of all law enforcement and military working day in and day out to protect our border. I’m humbled the National Border Patrol Council has my back in this high stakes race.”
