The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) supports the bipartisan Senate border deal, acknowledging its imperfections but deeming it better than the current situation.

NBPC highlights the high number of daily apprehensions and the release of individuals under “catch-and-release.”

They emphasize that the Border Act of 2024 will grant Border Patrol agents new authority to expedite the removal of single adults without lengthy judicial review, aiming to reduce illegal border crossings.

NBPC said in a statement, “While not perfect, the Border Act of 2024 is a step in the right direction and is far better than the status quo, which is why the National Border Patrol Council endorses this bill and hopes for a quick passage.”

Despite opposition from House Republicans, the Senate is set to vote on the $118 billion package, which includes border enforcement policy and aid for Ukraine, Israel, and U.S. allies.
