Former President Donald Trump released a statement this week attacking the Biden administration for releasing “17,000 illegal immigrants” from Del Rio, Texas, into America and argued, “Our Country is being destroyed!”
“All 17,000 illegal immigrants who entered our Country from Haiti and other places unknown have now been released into our Country with no vetting, checking, or even minimal understanding of who they are,” Trump began in his statement posted to Twitter by spokeswoman Liz Harrington.
Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said in a briefing on Friday that approximately 30,000 mostly Haitian migrants had been encountered in Del Rio since Sept. 9, with only about 2,000 deported to Haiti.
Many were given a notice to appear for an asylum hearing and were released after being removed from a camp under the Del Rio International Bridge that included about 15,000 people at its height.
Trump also criticized the Biden administration for releasing the Haitian migrants without COVID-19 testing or other health checks.
“Some are very sick with extremely contagious diseases, even worse than the China Virus. They are not masked or mandated, but just let free to roam all over our Country and affect what was just a year ago, a great Nation,” he said in the statement.
The former president argued that the Biden administration’s open border policies have resulted in America being “humiliated like never before.”
In addition to the border crisis, he also noted President Joe Biden’s “embarrassing” withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“Now we are a Nation humiliated like never before, both with the historically embarrassing ‘withdrawal’ from Afghanistan, and our Border where millions of people are pouring in. Our Country is being destroyed!” Trump said.
The Biden administration withdrew all U.S. military personnel on Aug. 31, leaving hundreds of Americans behind under the rule of the Taliban. Trump is right. Biden is literally destroying our country through his actions, or lack of actions.
In addition, the military departure included leaving behind vast amounts of military equipment, providing tremendous resources to arm the Islamic extremist group. Biden didn’t just leave Afghanistan; he also gave them a military stockpile. Estimated to be worth around $80 million. For reference, ISIS now has more black hawk helicopters than Australia.
Further, 13 U.S. military personnel were killed during a suicide bombing in August outside the Kabul airport. These deaths did not need to happen. They are the direct result of Biden’s inability to make competent decisions.
In response, the Biden administration authorized a drone strike to take out an ISIS-K group leader planning a second attack. A later report revealed the drone strike did not kill a terrorist, but instead killed a foreign aid worker and his family, including seven children.
An unknown number of Americans and allies remain in Afghanistan nearly a month after the Biden administration’s military departure. Biden hopes that since the troops are gone, that his liberal media stans will help him cover up any remaining Americans he abandoned there.
How much worse can it get? Americans are scared to discover the answer. Instead of leading and ending well in Afghanistan, Biden left poorly, abandoned Americans and Afghans who had helped us, and brought in tens of thousands of refugees to live in America.
Now we’re dealing with multiple millions of new immigrants during the time of the worst inflation in 40 years while trying to wrap up a pandemic. Biden is definitely destroying our nation, and Americans are ready for something – and someone – new.
