Trump: Biden's Border Policies Are 'Destroying Our Country'

Share

Former President Donald Trump accused the Biden administration on Monday of “destroying” the United States due to the border policies it has adopted.

On his first day in office in January, Biden issued an executive order ending Trump’s emergency declaration relating to the southern border.

The 46th president directed all construction of the border wall to cease.

Additionally, the Biden administration re-instituted “Catch and Release,” eliminated the “Remain in Mexico” policy for those making asylum claims and ended asylum cooperation agreements with Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

In February, U.S. Border Patrol encountered over 100,000 migrants attempting to enter the country illegally along the southwest border.

Last week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement, “We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years.”

Trump told Fox News host Harris Faulkner Monday the Biden administration’s policies “will destroy our country.”

“You can’t take millions of people. They’ll have millions of people before this mess is over,” the former president said.

“Right now you don’t have anything protecting our country. You have people just flowing through,” Trump added.

“The numbers are so vast, nobody’s ever seen anything like it. They say 20 years. I bet it’s maybe forever.”

Trump stated that people are coming not just from the three Central American countries on Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico.

“They’re coming over now from Yemen. They’re coming over from the Middle East. Who the hell knows what we’re taking in,” he said.

Trump relayed that the “never thought Biden would be far worse” and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Do you think Trump's border policies should be reinstated?

Biden is “Bernie Sanders on steroids,” the 45 president said.

“You haven’t seen anything, yet,” Trump contended.

“You are going to see packing the courts,” he predicted. “You are going to see the biggest tax increase in history. You’re going to see the Second Amendment just absolutely obliterated. You’re going to see many other things. The Green New Deal will be put into effect.”

In a statement released on Sunday, Trump said, “in the span of a just a few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster.”

He also criticized Mayorkas after the secretary had appeared on multiple Sunday shows defending the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis.

“Even someone with Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens then the whole world will come.”
