Border Patrol agent Ramiro Cordero told MSNBC that President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy has been effective in deterring people from entering the United States illegally during an interview on Tuesday.

MSNBC’s Gabe Gutierrez asked Cordero if Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy has been a deterrent.

“It always has [been],” Cordero said.

Cordero added the number of people attempting to enter the United States illegally has dropped.

“The message is getting out, that, you know, if you violate our laws, there’s consequences to those laws,” Cordero said.

Gutierrez asked Cordero what he thought about people who have been critical of border patrol agents separating families that enter the country illegally.

“We’re sworn federal law enforcement officers. We have to do our job. There is no discretion within our authority,” Cordero said.

Cordero added that border patrol agents empathize with those families but that they also have a job to do.
