(Weslaco) Donald Trump on Wednesday made a warning prediction about the immigration policy of his successor Joe Biden, who went to “adore” his famous “wall” on the border, for his first major field trip since leaving the White House. With Mexico.
The “most dangerous” frontier, the “sick country”: Leaving behind the promise of a new presidential candidacy in 2024, the Republican has not lost his worrying rhetoric in his five-month “retirement” in his luxurious residences in Florida. New coat.
In their cowboy hats, along with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Sheriff, the former president attended a “border security” meeting in the small town of Weslaco on the south bank of the river. Texas.
“We have an open border now, very dangerous, more dangerous than ever in the history of our country,” he said.
He had to go to the border separating the United States from Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, thirty kilometers away.
“We’re going to adore the wall,” he said.
“Build the wall! This cry gave a break to his election meetings before his election in 2016.
During his four years as president, he said about 800 kilometers had been completed, most of which were improvements to existing fences.
For Republicans, this is clear: the billionaire’s program is working, but the arrival of Democratic President Joe Biden at the White House on the promise of a “more humane” immigration policy has fueled the catastrophic influx of immigrants.
“The situation under Biden’s administration has changed very quickly and deeply. It is unbelievably devastating,” said Governor Abbott.
This spring marks the 3,200-kilometer-long southern border of the United States through record arrests. In May, 180,000 people were arrested after smuggling to a 15-year high.
“We did an amazing job and in a few months everything was ruined,” Donald Trump lamented at the meeting.
Without waiting for the White House, Greg Abbott ordered the construction of the Texas border wall to continue in mid-June. And South Dakota Republican Governor Christie Noem announced that he was sending a few dozen soldiers from the National Guard in his state to the border 2,000 kilometers north.
Recalling Donald Trump’s controversial policy, Democrats condemned the political stance and cited a number of factors that acted in favor of this increase.
Under his presidency, nearly 4,000 immigrant children were separated from their families. More than 2,000 people never reunited with their loved ones in early June.
“For four years, Republicans have been silent, Trump has damaged our immigration system,” Democratic Party spokeswoman Ammer Moussa said Wednesday, calling the former president’s visit a “clown show.”
Donald Trump, who has been banned from social networks since his supporters assassinated Capital on January 6, has been very influential in his party.
He is determined to influence American politics ahead of the November 2022 parliamentary and local midterm elections.
After months of virtual silence, his schedule is accelerating. Next Saturday he will hold another big meeting in Sarasota, Florida.
The Tribune rediscovered this supercharged atmosphere in Ohio last Saturday.
In front of thousands of supporters, he repeated his baseless allegations about the presidential election, which had been “stolen” from him … and indirectly referred to the new presidential candidacy in 2024.
In Texas, he returned to these charges, although dozens of courts have denied it.
“We have a country that is sick in many ways,” Weslaco said. “If you don’t have good elections and you don’t have a strong border, you no longer have a country. ”
