President Trump is already making the case that Joe Biden’s or any Democrats’ plans for the border are a complete disaster. Not that it is a hard case to make since Biden has literally created an open border replete with fentanyl smuggling and illicit child sex trafficking leading the way as well as millions of illegal aliens who are already taking jobs that belong to Americans. Child laborers in factories have made their biggest comeback since the 1930s.
Last week Trump released his plans for border security. President Trump had reeled in runaway illegal immigration started by Barack Obama and Joe Biden began dismantling it on his first day in office, setting practically every record for illegal immigration. Trump argues that giving Biden more money for the border is not the answer because he will just use the money to bring in even more illegal aliens. If that is indeed possible.

“Far more illegal immigrants have entered the United States in the last two years than at any time in American history… Our country is under invasion.”
“Days ago, 16,000 illegal aliens were encountered crossing the border in a single 48-hour period.”
“’A colossal migrant caravan recently poured across the Rio Grande and into the streets of El Paso, Texas. And the people, and the police, didn’t know what to do about it. It is truly a massive invasion.”
“Any form of amnesty now would be a catastrophe.”
‘It rewards Joe Biden’s lawlessness, and it rewards the criminal cartels, and it rewards everyone who has broken the laws of our nation because they’ve never done anything to our country like they’re doing right now. Our country is being poisoned.”
“Remember, our border is open not because of insufficient resources or legal authorities.”
“Our border is open because Joe Biden ordered it to be opened. And because Biden has broken the law and torn it into shreds. He has shredded our system and he is destroying our country.”
“Biden inherited a flawless deportation system that was working like never before in our history…Giving Biden more resources will simply translate to even more releases because that’s really what they have in mind.”
“This has nothing to do with asylum: everyone knows this is a pretext and this is a fraud.”
“Anyone who pretends otherwise plays into the hands of Biden and the criminal cartels. This is about Biden’s lawless and criminal misconduct.”
“The most important reform needed right now is a total ban on Biden using taxpayer dollars to free illegal aliens and administrative penalties for noncompliance which happens every single minute of every single day.”
Key former border officials were quick to hit the administration and warn that the crisis will worsen because immigrants view the United States as weak.
“As bad as it has gotten, things will only get worse, and I fear what major catastrophe could come next. But make no mistake — responsibility for what has happened, and what will happen, lies squarely with this administration,” said Mark Morgan, the former acting Customs and Border Patrol commissioner and a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
Added Tom Homan, also a Heritage visiting fellow and former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director: “This is a shameful episode in our history, and the ones who are suffering are not the elites in their gated and secured Beltway communities. It’s the Border Patrol agents being overwhelmed on a daily basis. It’s the families who have been ripped apart losing a loved one to fentanyl or other drugs. And it’s the migrants themselves, who are worthless to the cartels once they’ve been paid. The next Congress better do something about it.”
