Former President Donald Trump on Friday tore into President Biden for what he described as a “spiraling tsunami” at the border, just as the administration faces a spike in migrant families and unaccompanied children.
“Our border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden,” Trump said in a lengthy statement. “Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked by the Biden Administration. 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 45th president made reference to the recent release of migrants who had tested positive for COVID-19 in South Texas. He also alluded to the narrowing of enforcement priorities for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as he declared that “interior enforcement has been shut down.”
