The President of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, informed the House Committee on Homeland Security that assaults on Federal border patrol agents were up 76 percent in 2017 from the previous year on Tuesday.

“Over the past year, we’ve seen a historic drop in the number of people entering the United States illegally. The administration’s simple promise to enforce the laws was all it took to send shock waves throughout the world,” Judd said.

He added that the Trump administration’s policies resulted in criminal cartels’ profits taking a considerable dent, but this was not without consequences.

“Assaults on federal agents with a border security mission increased by 76 percent in 2017 compared to the previous year,” Judd added.
