Union of immigration officers endorses Trump

A union representing 5,000 immigration officers has endorsed Donald Trump for president. The endorsement comes as Trump and Clinton prepare to debate immigration among other issues in a nationally televised even that's expected to draw up to 100 million viewers.

With immigration likely to be discussed at the debate, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing 5,000 federal immigration officers and law enforcement support staff, announced it would support Trump, in what was described as its first endorsement of a candidate for elected office.

The union's president, Chris Crane, outlined in a statement why his group is backing Trump, saying his union members are "the last line of defense for American communities" and that his members "are prevented from enforcing the most basic immigration laws."

A CNN/ORC poll released on Sept. 7 said that among registered voters, 49 percent said they trusted Clinton to handle immigration, a slight advantage over Trump, who was at 47 percent.

Crane said the endorsement was conducted by a vote of the union's membership and that Clinton received only 5 percent of the vote.

This rousing endorsement is a shot in the arm to the Trump campaign. The federal employees most responsible for keeping our borders safe have come out almost unanimously for Trump.

Most voters are probably unaware of the extent of Hillary Clinton's open borders policies. Trump would do well to expose those policies in the debate, showing why Clinton is unfit to protect Americans from criminals who cross our borders with impunity.
