Trump Blasts Biden’s Executive Order On Southern Border

Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden’s executive order on the border released on Tuesday.

In a video statement slamming the president’s plan to limit asylum seeker crossings, Trump said, “Crooked Joe Biden, the worst president in the history of our country, by far, has totally surrendered our southern border. His weakness and extremism have resulted in a border invasion like we have never seen before.”

“Other countries have emptied out their prisons, insane asylums, and mental institutions and sent us drug dealers, human traffickers, and terrorists. Millions of people have poured into our country and now after nearly four years of his failed, weak leadership, pathetic leadership, crooked Joe Biden is pretending to finally do something about the border,” he added.

The Republican presidential candidate went on to say that Biden’s executive order will not do anything to stop the border invasion. Instead, he believes that it will “actually make the invasion worse, millions of people a year will continue to pour across our border and be released into our country and we recently learned Biden is secretly granting mass amnesty to hundreds of thousands of these illegal aliens along with welfare, government benefits, work permits, and jobs.”

“He’s not doing that, however, for our veterans, he’s not doing that for our homeless, he’s giving illegal aliens far more than our veterans get, far more than our homeless get. Many of the Left are even pushing for illegal aliens to vote in our elections, which is what this is all about. That’s why they’re allowing [in] up to 20 million people since he took office. When I was president, we built over 500 miles of border wall, stopped the flood of criminals, and we had the safest border in the history of our country. We need to secure our border once again, we need to secure our border once and for all. Crooked Joe will never get the job done. He doesn’t want to get the job done. It’s just words and misinformation because he could have done it very easily. All he had to do is say, ‘Close the border.’ That’s the power of the presidency,” he added.

Trump also vowed that he will “seal the border, stop the invasion, and send Joe Biden’s illegal aliens back home” if he gets elected president. For him, the issue is a “top priority” and he will move on illegal immigrants from his first day in office.

Trump’s 2024 campaign also took a hit at the president’s executive order, which involves the federal government shutting down the U.S.-Mexico border when the average daily encounters of migrants between ports of entry reach 2,500 and reopening it when the average daily encounters drops to 1,500.

A statement released by the campaign press secretary Karoline Leavitt, the plan was referred to as “amnesty.”

“Let’s be clear — Joe Biden’s Executive Order is for amnesty, not border security. If Joe Biden truly wanted to shut down the border, he could do so with a swipe of the same pen, but he never will because he is controlled by radical left Democrats who seek to destroy America,” the statement added.
