DHS Secretary Blames Trump For Border Crisis...
Well, this is rich... Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is claiming that the number of illegals crossing our border is reaching highs not seen in 20 years, oh and it's Trump's fault. Yea, because it's not like Biden practically invited them here with his welcoming policies...
“The situation at the southwest border is difficult,” Mayorkas said in his statement. “We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years. We are expelling most single adults and families. We are not expelling unaccompanied children.”
“Poverty, high levels of violence, and corruption in Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries have propelled migration to our southwest border for years,” Mayorkas said.
Mayorkas also blamed the Trump administration for the crisis, saying it “completely dismantled the asylum system,” and “cut foreign aid funding to the Northern Triangle.” The Trump administration in fact restored some aid to those countries in 2019 after they agreed to receive illegal immigrants expelled by the U.S."
Republicans have cited Biden’s removal of Trump administration policies, such as the “Remain in Mexico” rule, as fueling the crisis."
Former acting ICE director Tom Homan claims this is all Biden's fault.
"In 2020, the alien children numbers were down 70% from the year prior. Illegal immigration was down 50-80% depending on what month you looked at. Last month, Joe Biden’s policy created a 300% increase in alien children...
"The border is not secure because the Biden administration has undone all the success of the Trump administration. You got a job to do, educate yourself, give me a call I’ll tell you how to fix it, but you can’t go on national TV and say this is President Trump’s fault..."
Dems did this to us. They created this crisis with their claims about making 11 million illegals, American citizens and with a proposal to make citizenship that much easier. Trump had our border secured. The Biden Administration could have just left things as they are for four years and we would have maintained a much safer America. But I guess that'd be too easy and contrary to the Dems plan to open our borders.
