At the exact time that the Biden Administration does not want the nation to focus on their self-created catastrophe at the U.S.-Mexico border, former President Donald J. Trump today announced he would be making a trip there.
In the aftermath of crushing media coverage of Biden-appointed “Border Czar” V.P. Kamala Harris’ refusal to even visit the region, Biden no doubt hoped the issue would just go away while he was jet-setting to Europe.
He thought wrong. Trump will be on the ground just two weeks from now — June 30th.
At a time when there is a massive invasion of illegals across the border — with apprehensions 10 times higher than this time last year — coupled with a total inability to deal with it, Trump’s visit will bring white hot focus to a critical weakness to the new president.
Trump was invited by Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and will visit in Texas. Abbott recently announced his state would continue Trump’s wall construction there which Biden & Co. halted in February.
Newsmax host Greg Kelly broke the news tonight on his popular show, Greg Kelly Reports.
Governor Abbott told Kelly during their segment that last year, in April 2020, there were 17,000 apprehensions at the Texas border. This April there were over 170,000 apprehensions at the Texas border with Mexico.
UPDATE: President Trump has released a statement regarding his impending visit:
I have accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott to join him on an official visit to our 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. It’s an unmitigated disaster zone.
We went from detain-and-remove to catch-and-release. 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.
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 at a time when the White House is doing everything it can to make 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.
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.
