(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Former President Donald Trump issued a statement about the influx of illegal aliens, urging the US Congress to adopt “three crucial actions” to crack down on the illegal immigration crisis on the Southern Border.
Trump’s statement came as border authorities braced for lifting Title 42, the public health expulsion policy adopted on his watch in March 2020.
Title 42 has led to the deportation of 2.4 million illegal immigrants. It is presently kept in force by a decision of US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who paused its termination during a lawsuit. Last month, a Washington, DC-based judge ordered it to end on December 21.
About 6 million illegal migrants have entered the US since Joe Biden became president 23 months ago. These include well over 1 million gotaways.
In his statement, former President Trump slammed his successor for inviting “millions of illegal aliens to infiltrate our country in a gigantic unlawful invasion.”
“Now, after announcing on April 1, 2022 that he would end my Title 42 protections at the border, and declining to appeal numerous court rulings, Biden is getting what he always wanted: the termination of the most effective border security policy in modern history,” Trump stated, as cited by Breitbart News.
According to reports, several convoys of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are awaiting south of the border or traveling north from Southern Mexico to cross into the US as soon as Title 42 is lifted.
The report stressed that Biden administration officials have admitted that America may receive 500,000 illegals per month after Title 42 is terminated, up from about 200,000 a month.
The first of the three actions that Trump proposed to the US Congress provides for a “TOTAL and PERMANENT BAN” on a president who uses taxpayer money to set free migrants inside the US. He said the ban should be codified in a federal spending bill.
“That is why Republicans must do whatever it takes to prevent Mitch McConnell from passing his sellout Omnibus Bill,” Trump declared.
The second action he proposed was that Congress enshrine all immigration policies from his term into federal law.
“My Title 42 policy must be legislatively restored and made permanent, making clear that it can be used in any circumstance the president deems necessary for border management,” the former president stated.
“Likewise, Remain in Mexico, our Safe Third Country agreements, expedited removals, 212(f), and many other vital Trump policies must be enshrined in federal law,” he added.
His third newly proposed measure provides “CRIMINAL PENALTIES for any senior official or political appointee who orders, aids, or abets the mass-release of illegal aliens into the United States.”
“What these Open Borders extremists are doing to our country is criminal—and it should be punished as such,” Trump said.
