|Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America|
|Our recently secured Southern Border is now worse than ever before. At no time in our Country’s history has anything so outrageous taken place. The Biden Administration stopped construction of the small remaining openings in areas of the almost 500 mile long wall, have taken away all authority from our great Border Patrol, and have ended such long fought for policies including Remain in Mexico, Safe Third Agreements, and our hugely-successful program that completely stopped Catch-and-Release. Millions of people are pouring through our Border, including many criminals being released from jails, for such crimes as murder, drug smuggling, and human trafficking. In the history of our Country, it has never been more dangerous or worse. They do not have long to act as our Country is being destroyed!|
Trump is 100% correct. What a disgrace this is to see day in & day out. BTW, the press just crapped the bed again on the whole Lafayette park clearing back in June of 2020. If the last 4 years weren't a coup to get Trump out of office, I don't know what is.
He has several valid points, like having illegals wait in Mexico for their court dates, but he is overstating the amount of wall we actually have. Of the 2000-mile border about 700 had a wall. The Trump admin wanted to do 500-miles of repaired and new wall but only got 150 done (I think all new). When Trump states there is a little bit of wall remaining, I assume he means the 13-miles needed to complete a specific area in TX prone to flooding and Biden just approved to finish.
I rest my case.
