According to the former U.S. president, it is necessary to complete the wall on the border with Mexico.
The United States is falling into decline due to the inaction of the current administration regarding the migration crisis. Former U.S. President Donald Trump expressed this opinion.
“Our country is dying from within, and no one is doing anything to stop it. The first thing that needs to be done is complete the wall [on the country’s border with Mexico]. This can be done quickly,” the politician said in a statement released on Sunday.
During his presidency, Trump ordered the construction of a wall along the entire border with Mexico in places where it had not yet been. His political opponents in the U.S. Congress refused to allocate funds for this. Trump had to use his powers to redirect several billion dollars from the Pentagon budget to the construction of the wall. Biden, who became the owner of the White House on January 20, canceled Trump’s relevant decrees and relaxed several other restrictions on entry into the country.
As a result, the flow of Mexico and South American residents seeking to move to the United States at any cost has sharply increased. According to the U.S. Customs and Border Control Service, the number of illegal immigrants detained at the southern border in April exceeded 178.6 thousand, which is a record high monthly figure for the last 20 years.
