Former President Trump announced he accepted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) invitation to visit the “Nation’s decimated Southern Border,” before VP Harris has made any plans to visit.
Trump will visit the “Nation’s decimated Southern Border on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.”
“The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S history, and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in U.S history,” the former president said.
The Biden administration has turned the Southern Border into an “unmitigated disaster zone,” adding the country has now gone from “detain-and-remove to catch-and-release,” Trump noted.
We went from having border security that was the envy of the world to a lawless border that is now pitied around the world. Biden and Harris have handed control of our border over to cartels, criminals, and coyotes. Drug dealers, MS-13 gang members, human smugglers, sex traffickers, and the criminal elements of the world now have free reign.
Hospitals and schools are getting crushed, and public health is being sacrificed all in service of a radical left anti-borders agenda. Our brave border agents and courageous ICE officers have been illegally stopped from doing their jobs. Our Nation is now one giant sanctuary city where even dangerous criminals are being cut loose and set free inside the U.S interior on a daily basis.
Trump criticized the Biden administration, saying, “If this weren’t bad enough, Biden and Harris won’t even tour the scenes of the wreckage they created, or come down and visit with the Border Patrol and ICE heroes risking their lives to defend our Nation” since the current White House has makes their job “totally impossible.”
“What Biden and Harris have done, and are continuing to do on our border, is a grave and willful dereliction of duty,” Trump said. “My visit will hopefully shine a spotlight on these crimes against our Nation—and show the incredible people of ICE and Border Patrol that they have our unshakeable support.”
Recently Abbott said Texas would “immediately begin construction of border barriers in areas like Del Rio where migrants can easily cross unsecured sections.”
The governor also told Breitbart Texas that he had chosen the Del Rio area when he announced because of the “massive increases in illegal border crossings in this region.”
Republicans claim Biden’s swift shift in direction when a record-setting number of migrants surged to the U.S.-Mexico border in the first few months of his presidency. Those numbers have since abated, but GOP lawmakers have pressured President Biden and VP Harris to visit the southern border to assess the situation and support law enforcement.
