In a Sirius XM radio interview Wednesday with Breitbart’s Brandon Darby, Senior Policy Adviser for Donald Trump said that if Trump becomes President, the Border Patrol agents will have a “direct line” to the White House.

Speaking on behalf of Donald Trump, Stephen Miller, the senior policy adviser for the Trump campaign made it clear that Mr. Trump is serious about protecting America’s borders.

We are going to make sure they have the resources they need to get this job done. They are going to be sitting with us to craft a policy that works for America and for them. We are going to protect the Border Patrol agents. We are going to protect their mission. We are going to make sure that we secure the border once and for all. The NBPC will never again have a back seat in our nation’s border policy.”[/pullquote]

The agents are going to be the voice that we go to to hear what’s really happening on the border and what we are going to do about it. We are going to work with the NBPC, and not just in a token way. But in depth, on a regular basis, they are going to have a direct line into our policy making on a routine basis. We are going to sit down with them and figure out how to secure this border and how to make life better for their agents and for the country. It will be a new day in America for the NBPC.”[/pullquote]
