Former President Donald J. Trump unveiled his plan to tackle the illegal immigrant crisis that has spiraled out of control under the disastrous policies of the Biden administration. With a new executive order set to be signed on day one of his return to office, Trump aims to put an end to the illegal foreign invasion that has plagued our borders, jeopardized our security, and drained our resources.
On Tuesday, Trump highlighted the gravity of the situation: “Joe Biden has launched an illegal foreign invasion of our country, allowing a record number of illegal aliens to storm across our borders. From all over the world, they came. Under Biden’s current policies, even though these millions of illegal border crossers have entered the country unlawfully, all of their future children will become automatic U.S. citizens. Can you imagine?”
“They’ll be eligible for welfare, taxpayer-funded healthcare, the right to vote, chain migration, and countless other government benefits, many of which will also profit the illegal alien parents.”
Trump’s concern resonates with millions of Americans who are deeply troubled by the consequences of Biden’s reckless open-border policies. The former president pointed out that this misguided approach not only rewards lawbreakers but also poses a significant threat to our national security.
“This policy is a reward for breaking the laws of the United States and is obviously a magnet helping draw the flood of illegals across our borders. They come by the millions and millions and millions. They come from mental institutions. They come from jails, prisoners, some of the toughest, meanest people you’ll ever see,” Trump stated emphatically.
“As part of my plan to secure the border on day one of my new term in office, I will sign an executive order making clear to federal agencies that under the correct interpretation of the law, going forward, the future children of illegal aliens will not receive automatic U.S. citizenship,” Trump affirmed.
Known for his policy and actions on the United States-Mexico border during his term in office from 2017 to 2021, Trump’s promise to build a wall along the southern border was a key element of his 2016 presidential campaign.
The administration made efforts to construct new barriers and fortify existing ones along the border. By the time he left office in January 2021, approximately 450 miles of wall had been constructed.
In addition to the wall, Trump enacted several other immigration policies that were focused on the southern border. These included the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which required asylum seekers arriving at the southern border to stay in Mexico while their claims were processed in US courts.
