    Border Patrol Agents Demand GOP Provide ‘Free, Fair and Open Elections in America’

    The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), the organization that represents nearly 17,000 of the Border Patrol agents who risk their lives to secure U.S. borders, is challenging the Colorado GOP for not holding a state primary and instead slating delegates mostly favorable to Trump’s rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

    The NBPC recently endorsed Trump for president after the candidate shocked them by publicly declaring that actual Border Patrol agents would have a seat at the head of the table in any discussions on U.S. border security policy.

    In an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, the National Border Patrol Council wrote:

    In our March 30th endorsement statement of Donald J. Trump, we, the National Border Patrol Council called upon the American people to stand with border agents in support of Mr. Trump and his pledge to end illegal immigration. We fully expected that the will of the American electorate, whatever they decided in this primary, would be upheld. It is now clear that voters are being disenfranchised in order to protect established interests.

    By cancelling the election in Colorado, the Republican Party has found a brand new way to disenfranchise voters who want secure borders and safe communities. Once again, the will of the public – who have pleaded for immigration enforcement – is being overridden by special interests with agendas. We see the same thing happening across the country, where delegates won by Mr. Trump – through a popular recorded vote – have made secret arrangements to support other candidates, thwarting the will of the millions of voters they collectively are supposed to represent. This is insidious.

    I am calling today on the Republican Party to promise free, fair and open elections in America. All candidates should join in this demand. Elections should mean that the people – not party insiders – choose the nominee. We will never secure our immigration system unless the raw will of the American people is imposed through the ballot box. Clearly, politicians and special interests will continue to betray America’s interests if they are left to their own devices
    .

    Over the past weekend, the Colorado Republican Party held its state convention, where at least 30 of the 37 Colorado delegates selected to attend the Republican National Convention and cast a vote for the 2016 nominee favor Cruz.

    Following Cruz’s sweep, the Colorado GOP sent out a tweet from its official Twitter account, reading, “We did it! #NeverTrump.”

    The tweet was subsequently deleted, but the occurrence is fueling backlash from voters who believe the establishment is obstructing the will of the people.

    Trump also weighed in on Twitter about the people of Colorado not having their vote count:

    Donald J. Trump ✔ ‎@realDonaldTrump
    How is it possible that the people of the great State of Colorado never got to vote in the Republican Primary? Great anger - totally unfair!

    Donald J. Trump ✔ ‎@realDonaldTrump
    The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed!

    If it comes down to it...we need to stick together across the Nation and write TRUMP'S name in on the ballot. We will have to get it viral so every one sticks to it and writes him in We will have to get signs printed up and out there.

    I love it! "I'm ready to work on the wall". Fantastic! Rise Up America. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that we can't do ourselves by ourselves for ourselves. Never forget that. We don't need foreign labor to do anything. All these people telling US otherwise are nothing but white collar over-paid trash.
