The migration crisis on the US-Mexico border created by Joe Biden is the epitome of the America at the End agenda, former President Donald Trump said on Sunday (February 28th).
In his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), former President Trump criticized the immigration policies of the new administration.
“In just a month we went from ‘America first’ to ‘America last’ … there is no clearer example [for that,” Trump said. It is] with a new and terrible crisis at our southern border ”.
Specifically, Mr. Trump noted that President Biden had ordered to stop construction of border walls, restart the arrest and release program, which allows illegal immigrants to be released to the United States pending their release. asylum hearing. However, former President Trump once warned that these immigrants, once released in the United States, will not appear at the hearing and that it is also difficult to locate them. In addition, the new president is also suspending most deportations of illegal immigrants.
“We ended the Catch and Release program, put an end to refugee fraud and brought the number of illegal border crossings to historically low levels,” Trump said. “When illegal immigrants entered our borders, they were immediately arrested, detained and sent home.”
“It only took a few weeks for the new administration to turn this unprecedented achievement into a humanitarian catastrophe and self-inflicted national security,” the former president continued:
“By recklessly removing borders, security measures, checks [and] everything we do, Joe Biden is triggering a huge wave of illegal immigration to their country. I … Tens of thousands of people are entering.” They all come to take advantage of what he said. It draws people to America. And we are a nation, we cannot solve the world’s problems, ”said the former president.
Since taking office at the end of last month, Mr. Biden has ended Mr. Trump’s stay in Mexico policy, relaunched the arrest and release program, and rescinded asylum cooperation agreements in distress with Central America.
The result is a wave of illegal immigrants reaching the southern border and large numbers of people crossing into the interior of the United States – many of whom were not required to be tested for COVID-19. For example, in January 2021, border arrests increased by almost 160% and marked the highest level of illegal immigration of the month since January 2006.
Previously, the Joe Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) planned to allow approximately 25,600 people to migrate to the US communities of Texas and California.
The Biden administration has increased the release of border workers inside the United States since the restart of the arrest and release program. During the first 10 days of February, DHS released at least 2,000 people who had crossed the border into the United States. Meanwhile, in December 2020, before the Stay in Mexico program ended, the Department of Homeland Security only allowed 11 people to cross the border into the United States.
