Former President Donald Trump bemoaned multiple crises facing the country —from the migrant surge to the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan — and said the first remedy should be to “finish the wall.”
In a statement from his website, declared the country “is dying from within and nobody is doing anything to stop it.”
“Our Country is being poisoned with the millions of people that are illegally flowing through our Borders, in most cases not even questioned or stopped,” he said. “Many are criminals from the emptied prisons of other countries, most of these are very dangerous people.”
“The first thing that should be done, and it can be done quickly, is FINISH THE WALL,” he wrote. “A deal must be made with Mexico, where Mexico serves as a 2,000 mile barrier, not a launching pad for the illegals that are coming in.”
Trump’s fury over the wall comes in the wake of the attorneys general of Texas and Missouri filing suit against the Biden administration to use congressional funds set aside for border wall construction to finish the job — and data showing U.S. Border Patrol arrests reached the highest levels ever recorded during the 2021 fiscal year.
