National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd praised Texas Governor Greg Abbott for securing the border and said without his efforts, Arizona and California would be overwhelmed by illegal crossings.

Judd argued Abbott is the only governor taking meaningful action while Democrats like Arizona’s Katie Hobbs and California’s Gavin Newsom refuse to implement measures proven to work, like barriers and infrastructure.

“Gov. Hobbs and Gov. Newsom, they need to look at what Texas is doing and recognize that, if it weren’t for Texas, they would still — if it wasn’t for the government of Texas, they would still be underwater and inundated. These are certain things that we can do. It proves that barriers work, it proves that walls work, it proves that infrastructure works if we are willing to actually implement those measures that we know have worked in the past,” Judd said.

“But unfortunately, we just know that Democrats aren’t willing to do it. Gov. Hobbs hasn’t stepped [up] to the plate, Gov. Newsom has not stepped [up] to the plate. It’s only been Gov. Abbott to this point. And until others follow suit, again, we’re just not going to get this under control.”

“Was there anything in the bill that had initially been proposed that would have really done anything to stop the pull effect, to stop all of those folks from coming up to the border and trying to get across?” John Roberts asked.

Judd felt the failed Senate border bill initially contained some positive provisions, such as raising credible fear standards to reduce judicial backlogs and enable detention of more migrants, including families, until deportation.

It also would have streamlined credible fear determinations.

While not perfect, Judd would have preferred debate and amendments on the bill rather than it failing to advance.

“There was. There were several measures that would have been really, really good, such as raising the bar of the credible fear standard, which facilitates the release under normal circumstances. When you remove the judiciary out of this process, now we don’t have the backlog in the judicial system. We would have been able to detain and hold single adults, including married couples, until they’re removed,” Judd said.

“It would have allowed asylum officers to initially determine credible fear and then go to a panel of further asylum officers, then remove. There were several policy issues in that bill that would have been extremely good. There were some other things that weren’t good. I would have loved to have seen it [go] to the floor for a debate and amendment process, unfortunately, it just didn’t make it there.”
