Trump: Biden Facilitating ‘Greatest Border Disaster in History’
'Our border is now run by cartels, criminals, and coyotes'
Donald Trump slammed Joe Biden after he officially ended the “Remain in Mexico” program, which under Trump, cut asylum fraud on a mass scale.
Trump said Biden is facilitating the “greatest border disaster in history.”
Biden suspended the Remain in Mexico program immediately after taking office, which was implemented to tackle asylum fraud.
Biden then instructed the top Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to form a plan to release 25,600 migrants enrolled in the program into the U.S. interior.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the Remain in Mexico had been axed this week.
As of last month, Biden has released roughly 11,200 migrants enrolled in the program into the U.S. interior, providing work permits so they can take American jobs.
Trump slammed Biden for the move in a statement:
Remain in Mexico, also known as MPP (Migrant Protection Protocols), was not only a historic foreign policy triumph but one of the most successful border security programs anyone has ever put into effect anywhere.
Along with our Central America Safe Third agreements, asylum reforms, and expedited removal procedures we drove border numbers to record lows, and we ENDED the horrendous practice known as Catch-and-Release. [Emphasis added]
No American President had ever done more to defend the border and safeguard the whole immigration system. [Emphasis added]
"The Biden administration inherited the most secure border in history, and they turned it into the greatest border disaster in history. Our border is now run by cartels, criminals, and coyotes."
"Illegal immigrants, gang members, and lethal drugs are pouring across like never before."
"Not only are illegal immigrants being caught and released, they are being put up in hotels at taxpayer expense." [Emphasis added]
Trump's statement was echoed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who said Biden's agenda had created “the worst humanitarian, national security, and public health crisis ever seen at our southern border.”
It went on:
This decision is the latest in a long line of misguided policies from President Biden and the Democrats, and it’s imperative that the Biden administration immediately reverses this irresponsible decision and reinstates the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy before the crisis gets even worse.
Biden's anti-enforcement agenda is set to have a massive impact on America’s working and lower-middle-class, who will have to compete against illegal aliens for jobs.
This comes as 16.4 million Americans remain jobless, while another 5.2 million are underemployed.
In April, Neon Nettle reported the majority of Americans do not approve of how Biden is handling the border crisis, according to a new CNN poll.
78% of those polled believe that the situation at the border is a crisis.
But just 19% believe otherwise.
Meanwhile, 65% of voters disapprove of Biden's handling of the situation, while just 29% approve.
Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported that Biden has one of the lowest approval ratings in modern history, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll.
