Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) got more bad news as the National Border Patrol Council has endorsed Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) as the new House GOP conference chair.
Next week, House Republicans will decide whether to keep Cheney as the conference chair or to replace her with Stefanik during Wednesday’s regularly scheduled conference meeting.
Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, said in a statement that, “Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is the strongest member to share and grow our message of securing our border and protecting our communities.”
Cheney has fallen out of the good graces of the Republican Party by both attacking former President Trump and tacitly endorsing the agenda of the Biden administration, the latter of which has earned the ire of border patrol groups.
Judd continued saying, “Representative Stefanik supports funds to build the wall, technology to augment the Border Patrol’s capabilities, and more resources for the men and women on the front lines. I am truly grateful to say in the strongest possible terms that Elise opposes policies that have been so dangerous for our communities such as sanctuary cities, licenses for illegal immigrants, and public assistance for those who chose to violate our immigration laws.”
Such a resounding endorsement combined with the building movement against Cheney all but ensure that Cheney will be removed from her position next week. This will be a massive win for former President Trump as he continues his takeover of the GOP.
