Former President Trump released a statement Wednesday evening about the crisis at the southern border, just hours after the Border Patrol released their apprehension numbers for the month of May.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that border agents made a total of 180,034 apprehensions at southern border during May – up from 178,854 in April.
In comparison, only 23,237 apprehensions were made during the month of May last year.
The report was released just as Kamala Harris returned from a trip to Guatemala and Mexico, claiming she was searching for the “root causes” of migration.
Trump blasted out the following statement, voicing his outrage over the crisis:
Our recently secured Southern Border is now worse than ever before. At no time in our Country’s history has anything so outrageous taken place. The Biden Administration stopped construction of the small remaining openings in areas of the almost 500 mile long wall, have taken away all authority from our great Border Patrol, and have ended such long fought for policies including Remain in Mexico, Safe Third Agreements, and our hugely-successful program that completely stopped Catch-and-Release.
Millions of people are pouring through our Border, including many criminals being released from jails, for such crimes as murder, drug smuggling, and human trafficking. In the history of our Country, it has never been more dangerous or worse. They do not have long to act as our Country is being destroyed!
