Former U.S. President Donald Trump visited the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona last June to inspect the border wall.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s aide Jason Miller recently told the media that Trump may visit the U.S.-Mexico border soon in the midst of the growing border crisis.
According to several media reports, Miller revealed the news during an interview with radio station The Michael Berry Show on Thursday, March 25. Miller said, “This is something that President Trump really cares about, so at some point in the future, we’re going to see him make this trip.” “I know he’ll do that.”
Miller also said the reason Trump hasn’t been to the southern border since Biden took office is because he wants Biden himself to see firsthand the failure that reversing Trump’s immigration policies has brought. He also said that Trump told him that if he were still in the presidency, there would not be the current surge in illegal immigration.
On Sunday (March 21), Trump criticized the Biden Administration for turning “a national victory into a national disaster” in just a few weeks in office. He urged Biden to “finish building the border wall immediately. The wall can be done in a matter of weeks,” he said. …… They should never stop it. They are causing death and human tragedy.”
In his statement, Trump added, “We are proud to hand over the most secure border in history to the Biden administration. And all they have to do is keep this system running smoothly and just keep it on autopilot …… Now, however, the momentum (of illegal immigrants crossing the border) is like water overhead and it’s coming in fast.”
In January, new U.S. President Joe Biden took office and rescinded several Trump immigration-related regulations. Trump and several Republican members of Congress have said that Biden’s new immigration policies are the main reason for the surge in illegal immigration and unaccompanied children at the border, where the immigration crisis is now continuing to worsen.
While the border crisis worries many Americans, Biden told reporters at his first press conference on Thursday (March 25) that he “should be honored by the influx of immigrants that is happening.
At the press conference, a White House reporter for the left-media PBS asked Biden, “How do you plan to address the tensions at the border and how do you decide which families can stay?”
Biden joked, “I think I should feel honored because people want to come because I’m a good person and that’s why this is happening.” Biden added that one of the reasons January-March is the peak Time for border crossers to come to the U.S. every year, as it was last year during the Trump presidency, is because the winter weather is ideal for crossers to make the long trek through the desert country, as it is every year.
But Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas predicted earlier this month that more illegal immigrants will cross the border to the U.S. this year than in the past 20 years.
At the press conference, Cecilia Vega, a reporter for left-media ABC, asked Biden, “Would you allow unaccompanied children to enter the United States in Honduras when the mother of a 9-year-old boy thought you would allow them to migrate into the United States, so she let the boy make his own way to the U.S. border on foot? Does that constitute an incentive for immigrants to take risks?”
Biden did not answer Vega’s question positively, but instead glossed over it vaguely. He also did not say anything about the response to the problem and was criticized by public opinion for this.
