Trump on Border Crisis: Biden Turned ‘National Triumph into a National Disaster’
'They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast'
Donald Trump blasted Joe Biden's crisis at the border, saying his strategy "turned national triumph into a national disaster."
Trump said in a March 21 statement:
We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot.
Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast.
The pathetic, clueless performance of Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas on the Sunday Shows today was a national disgrace.
His self-satisfied presentation—in the middle of the massive crisis he helped engineer—is yet more proof he is incapable of leading DHS. Even someone of Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens then the whole world will come.
Furthermore, the Mayorkas Gag Order on our Nation’s heroic border agents and ICE officers should be the subject of an immediate congressional investigation.
But it’s clear they are engaged in a huge cover-up to hide just how bad things truly are. The only way to end the Biden Border Crisis is for them to admit their total failure and adopt the profoundly effective, proven Trump policies.
They must immediately complete the wall, which can be done in a matter of weeks—they should never have stopped it.
They are causing death and human tragedy.
In addition to the obvious, drugs are pouring into our country at record levels from the Southern Border, not to mention human and sex trafficking.
This Administration’s reckless policies are enabling and encouraging crimes against humanity. Our Country is being destroyed!
But Democrats continue to flip the blame on Trump for the current crisis at the boder despite him building an unprecedented diplomatic wall against illegal immigration, these incldued:
- A border wall
- Legal changes
- Multiple treaties with Central American countries
Biden even axed Trump's program targeting sexual offenders who were already in the United States illegally.
Biden also ended a crucial anti-fraud initiative that effectively helped eliminate Trump's Catch and Release program.
Trump's border policies were so effective the inflow of migrants plummeted to record low levels.
Such policies helped with higher-wage policies with angered progressives.
Now to make things worse, Biden is now using $86 million in American taxpayer money to put up thousands of migrants in hotel rooms.
Meanwhile, 13,000 unaccompanied minor children immigrants currently in custody.
Axios noted that the “growing numbers of migrant families trying to come to the U.S. — in addition to already overwhelming numbers of kids crossing the border without their parents or legal guardians…appear to be straining government resources."
Pinal Country Sheriff Mark Lamb said it was "ridiculous" that illegal immigrants are able to enter the country while schools and businesses remain closed.
"[During the Obama administration] it was like the Wild West out there in the desert on the south end of our county, and we’re back to that again," Lamb said.
"Almost every time we go out, we’re finding 20 people."
