Former President Donald Trump has lashed out at the new administration for opening up the border to migrants, making it dangerous and out of control. He called on President Joe Biden to “act immediately to end the border nightmare.”
“Our border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden,” Trump said a statement issued on Friday, March 5, through the Save America PAC.
Trump denounced Biden for reversing his policies on the border, saying under the Biden administration, the Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked.
“A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute,” he said. He added,” Many have criminal records.” Many others have and are spreading the CCP Virus (coronavirus).
Meanwhile, interior enforcement has been shut down, and ICE officers are desperate to remove the convicted criminals, but Biden won’t let them.
“The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers,” he wrote.
The former president compared the new administration to his own, saying President Biden is violating his constitutional oath of office.
“When I left office, we had achieved the most secure border in our country’s history. Under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before. He has violated his oath of office to uphold our Constitution and enforce our laws,” he wrote.
Trump’s statement said that he had a great relationship with Mexico and its president, “but all of that has been dissipated by the gross incompetence and radicalism of the people currently in charge.”
Trump said that his administration had “put in place powerful rules and procedures to stop the smuggling and trafficking” at the southern border. Still, the Biden administration has abandoned those strategies, giving the smugglers and traffickers effective control of the border.
Urging the Democrats to finish the border wall quickly to save thousands of lives, Trump also called on the Biden administration to take measures to protect the country from illegal immigration, crime, and the CCP Virus.
“The Biden Administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare that they have unleashed onto our Nation. Keep illegal immigration, crime, and the China Virus out of our country!” he wrote.
The statement came after President Biden denied earlier this week that there was a migration crisis on the southern border.
“No,” Biden told reporters on Tuesday, March 2. “We’ll be able to handle it. God willing.”
Biden confirmed he was briefed on the looming surge of unattended migrant children at the border. But when asked what he learned, Biden only replied, “A lot.”
