President Trump is looking at the November U.S.-Mexico border apprehensions and seeing red. As expected, he’s taken to Truth Social to unleash his fury, claiming that Joe Biden’s handling of border security has resulted in the ‘worst’ numbers in history. The President has always been vocal about his goals when it comes to immigration, so this latest attack on Biden should come as no surprise.
Donald Trump has not shied away from speaking out about the Biden administration’s handling of border security. He blasted the Biden administration for allowing U.S. border security and illegal immigrant encounters to plummet to the “worst” levels ever following a report that was released in November. According to statistics from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), it is now confirmed that more immigrants were encountered attempting to enter the United States without authorization in November than any month in U.S. history – a very concerning statistic that needs to be addressed by President Biden and his team in order to safeguard our country’s borders.
Monday morning, Trump posted on Truth Social, “Two years ago we had the strongest and safest Border in U.S. history. Hundreds of miles of Walls were built, my “Stay In Mexico” Policy was working fantastically, Title 42 was in full force and effect, Border Patrol and ICE were doing an incredible, tough, yet compassionate, job, and our Southern Border was, for the first time in decades, being spoken of in glowing terms. People weren’t even making the long hard journey up through Mexico. NOW OUR BORDER IS THE WORST IN HISTORY, & GETTING WORSE!”
Trump has been watching from a distance as the border continues to devolve into madness, just before Christmas he was clear to address the chaos with a message to America highlighting Biden’s failures as a president.
Nationally, 283,189 noncitizens were caught illegally crossing the border or denied admission at a port of entry, whether by land, air, or sea, up from 278,102 in October.
Additionally, November’s number is five times greater than November 2019, when 57,524 encounters were made before the Coronavirus pandemic started.
However, border violations were not limited to just the Texas-California border; Border Patrol reported an increase of 500% in apprehensions in the Miami sector during fiscal 2022.
A Border Patrol agent told The Center Square that agents had apprehended 2,350 foreign nationals attempting to illegally enter Florida by sea between September 1, 2021 and October 31, 2022. Chief Patrol Agent Walter Slosar reported that the majority of these individuals were Cubans, with 131 maritime smuggling events being intercepted – an incredible increase of 330% when compared with fiscal 2021. Numbers in December are looking even more drastic; the agent reported that apprehensions in the first three weeks are already nearly half of the total amount for fiscal year 2022, on track to break records for the Miami Sector.
Donald Trump launched a scathing attack on Biden after seeing the reported border security stats. The Biden administration has failed to keep up with the same standards that Trump had implemented during his presidency, leading to unimaginable levels of illegal immigrant encounters. What was once America’s strongest and safest border is now its worst in history and things are getting worse. It’s time for Biden to take action and follow Trump’s lead – it’s time to shut down the border and keep our country safe.
