Former President Donald Trump may be banned from social media, but that hasn’t stopped his message from getting to his tens of millions of supporters.
And it’s not a surprise after what he said at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) about President Joe Biden’s disastrous immigration policies that he would continue his attack on what appears to be an explosive, developing Biden administration blunder with concern to the border issue.
According to the Washington Examiner, Trump issued a statement on Friday in which he held nothing back on his feelings about the crisis, warning that it will only get worse from here.
“ICE officers are desperate to remove these convicted criminals, but Biden won’t let them,” Trump said. “The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers.”
“A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute,” the former president added.
Trump reminded his followers and the rest of the country that his policies, while controversial at times, were put into place to prevent this kind of crisis from getting so far out of hand, like it is now under the Biden administration.
“When I left office, we had achieved the most secure border in our country’s history. Under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before,” Trump warned.
“We put in place powerful rules and procedures to stop the smuggling and trafficking, but the Biden Administration has abandoned these proven strategies and instead given the smugglers and traffickers effective control of our border,” he added.
Not only is Biden facing a new crisis at the border, thanks mostly to his roll-back of dozens of Trump-era executive orders that put an halt to such nonsense, he’s also facing backlash from his own party, including from Rep. Alexanria Ocasio-Cortez for his version of “kids in cages.”
There’s also the added problem of COVID-19, with new reports emerging that potentially thousands of the tens of thousands they’re detaining at the border are infected with the virus, further complicating matters.
On Friday, it was also revealed that the Biden administration is now considering using Fort. Lee — a Virginia-based military installation — as a temporary holding facility for the disproportionate increase in illegal immigrant minors pouring across the border.
The situation is downright ugly, and Trump knows it.
