I have a feeling that it won’t be long that even Democrats who live close to the southern U.S. border will be begging for former President Donald Trump to come back and fix the enormous, unnecessary mess that President Joe Biden has already created within his first two months in the White House.
According to Fox News, the border crisis — or as the Biden administration calls it, the border “challenge” — is wreaking havoc on America already, and it’s just getting started. Trump released a new statement on Tuesday in which he sent a clear reminder to America regarding whose policies worked to keep the country safe and whose policies are putting America at great risk.
“We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers and human traffickers,” Trump wrote. “The Wall, despite horrendous Democratic delays, would have easily been finished by now, and is working magnificently.”
The former president also wrote in the statement that the border immigration crisis, under his administration, was in “great shape,” adding that it was “stronger, safer and more secure than ever before.”
“Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!” Trump concluded in his statement.
The situation is becoming so horrible that also on Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas actually put out a call for “volunteers” from various agencies to help bring the situation under some level of control.
But, it’s just a “challenge,” right?
Adding to that, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced this week that it will be taking unprecedented moves to shut down three popular border checkpoints as agents struggle to deal with the mass influx of illegals attempting to gain entry to the United States, as Fox News reported.
Those three checkpoints are located in Willcox, Arizona and will be shut down “until further notice.” The personnel assigned to the Willcox border checkpoint have been re-tasked to help out on the border, where thousands of illegals are being arrested each day.
“Tucson Sector has redirected manpower, based on operational needs in response to shifting traffic patterns, resulting in the closure of several tactical checkpoints in southeastern Arizona. We expect to re-open these checkpoints as manpower and activity levels dictate,” a statement on the situation explained.
There are many additional (and dangerous) layers to the problem, including an untold number of illegals who are being released onto U.S. soil after having tested positive for COVID-19. We know of at least 100, so far, but the number is likely much higher or, worse yet, unknown.
I’ll gladly pull a Jen Psaki and “circle back” to the following claim if need be, but I’m predicting that this border crisis will be the undoing of President Biden and it’ll probably happen sooner than later, given the current pace of the chaos.
