The pro-migration and pro-illegal immigration media is complicit in the U.S. border crisis as they "romanticize" illegal crossings and "vilify the good guys" trying to maintain law and order at the border, according to National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd.
"We always worried about how the media's going to react," Brandon Judd told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "It's so frustrating and disappointing to see that border patrol agents are vilified for strictly enforcing the laws that Congress put in place.
"We're trying to protect the American public; yet, they romanticize those people crossing the border illegally and they vilify the good guys that are trying to do the job for the American public."
Judd then added a call for Congress "to step up and do their job" on immigration reform, otherwise the Trump administration is forced to exercise its authority to "do what they need to do to alleviate this pressure" of massive migration at the border.
While the media might paint the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as a negative, it is a move in a positive direction for the administration, according to Judd.
"It's absolutely for the better," Judd said. "If you look at Secretary Nielsen, she is second to none in cybersecurity. That's where her expertise lies. Unfortunately, she did not have that experience in border security.
"So, we elevated the commissioner of customs and border protection who had a career at CBP with border security to face the problems that the DHS is looking at in the face right now and that is border security."
