“By recklessly eliminating our border security measures, controls, all of the things that we put into place, Joe Biden triggered a massive flood of illegal immigration into our country,” President Trump stated. “The likes of which we have never seen before coming up by the tens of thousands, who all come in to take advantage of the things that he said.

President Trump went on to urge the Biden administration to complete the nearly finished border wall he had begun, saying it would save thousands of lives.
