Former President Donald Trump warned that the country is being “poisoned” by the surge of immigrants coming to the US and called for restarting the border wall construction that President Biden ended when he took office.
“Our Country is being poisoned with the millions of people that are illegally flowing through our Borders, in most cases not even questioned or stopped. Many are criminals from the emptied prisons of other countries, most of these are very dangerous people,” Trump said in a statement sent by email Sunday.
“Our country is dying from within and nobody is doing anything to stop it. The first thing that should be done, and it can be done quickly, is FINISH THE WALL. A deal must be made with Mexico, where Mexico serves as a 2,000-mile barrier, not a launching pad for the illegals that are coming in,” the 45th president said.
Along with construction of the wall, Biden reversed or ended a number of Trump’s immigration policies, which resulted in a surge of immigrants arriving at the southern border from Mexico and Central and South America.
US Customs and Border Protection detained a record-high 1.7 million undocumented immigrants over the previous 12 months, officials said.
Trump also raised concerns about the Afghan allies transported to the US after the Biden administration pulled out of the war-torn country at the end of August. He continued by outlining the crises his successor created.
“How stupid our Country has become, so sad to watch when just 10 months ago we had none of these problems, and none either with bad economy, inflation, fuel prices going through the roof, and so much else,” he said.
Trump also said the media is complicit in hiding Biden’s failures.
“And never forget, because the Fake News will not talk about it any longer, those needlessly killed in Afghanistan and the thousands of people and the $85 Billion worth of Military equipment left behind in the complete and total surrender by the United States of America,” Trump said.
“We would have been out but we would have been out with dignity and strength. Our Country is now a laughingstock all over the world!” he said.
