Biden reversed a number of Trump’s immigration programs, including the “remain in Mexico” policy that required asylum seekers to wait out the legal process in their home country.
Trump claimed officials in the Northern Triangle countries are emptying their prisons so the inmates can travel to the US.
“We had the strongest in the history of our country,” Trump said. “Very few people [crossing]. Drugs were way down. Human trafficking was almost stopped.”
“You take a look at what’s happening now. And let me tell you: They’re letting people from prisons. They’re opening their prisons. Their prisoners are coming in, their murderers, their drug addicts, and drug dealers, by the way,” he said.
“And the human traffickers are coming in. They’re letting them in. They want them in. They don’t want them in their country, so they’re saying, ‘send them to the USA,’” Trump continued.
