On Friday, former President Donald Trump blasted current President Joe Biden for his total failure in managing the ongoing border crisis.

President Trump criticized Biden for his “disastrous leadership,” also hammering him for how Border Patrol and ICE agents have been “disrespected, demeaned and mocked” by the Biden Administration.

“The Biden Administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare that they have unleashed onto our Nation,” Trump said in his statement. “Keep illegal immigration, crime, and the China Virus out of our country!”

Read the full statement below:

Our border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden. Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked by the Biden Administration. A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute. Many have criminal records, and many others have and are spreading covid. Interior enforcement has been shut down—criminals that were once promptly removed by our Administration are now being released back onto the street to commit heinous and violent crimes. ICE officers are desperate to remove these convicted criminals, but Biden won’t let them.

The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers. When I left office, we had achieved the most secure border in our country’s history. Under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before. He has violated his oath of office to uphold our Constitution and enforce our laws.

There has never been a time on our southern border like what is happening now but more importantly, what is about to happen. Now that Biden has implemented nationwide Catch-and-Release, illegal immigrants from every corner of the Earth will descend upon our border and never be returned. You can never have a secure border unless people who cross illegally are promptly removed.

I had a great relationship with Mexico, and its wonderful president, but all of that has been dissipated by the gross incompetence and radicalism of the people currently in charge. The Remain in Mexico Policy was incredible, but immediately abandoned by Biden, probably because it worked so well. Likewise, our Safe Third Agreements in Central America were extraordinarily successful, so Biden foolishly ditched them too. We stopped payment of the hundreds of millions of dollars paid to them and then developed an excellent relationship that made our country and their countries more secure. We put in place powerful rules and procedures to stop the smuggling and trafficking, but the Biden Administration has abandoned these proven strategies and instead given the smugglers and traffickers effective control of our border.

Despite being delayed by years of litigation and politics by the democrats, the wall is almost finished and can be quickly completed. Doing so will save thousands of lives.

The Biden Administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare that they have unleashed onto our Nation. Keep illegal immigration, crime, and the China Virus out of our country!

Trump issued that statement as the Biden administration struggles to contain a deepening crisis on the border. The latest illegal alien influx was triggered by the undoing of several key Trump immigration policies designed to discourage border crossings.

White House: ‘We Don’t Take Advice’ From Former President on Immigration

White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded to a critical statement issued by former President Donald Trump about the surge in illegal immigration along the Southern Border.

“We don’t take our advice or counsel from former President Trump on immigration policy,” Psaki told reporters on Friday, claiming it was “inhumane” and “ineffective.”

“We’re going to chart our own path forward, and that includes treating children with humanity and respect,” she said.

Biden issued a slew of executive orders that did away with some of Trump’s policies, including halting the construction of the border wall and the “Remain in Mexico” initiative.

“Obviously we’re going to have more kids across the—in the country since we have been letting unaccompanied minors stay. And the last administration immorally kicked them out,” Psaki said Friday. When asked about whether the administration would reverse some of Trump’s policies, she replied: “No.”

Some children will eventually be returned to their countries of origin, according to the press secretary.

But Trump, via is Save America PAC, said Friday that Biden’s move to reverse several of his policies is what encouraged the current surge, triggering a humanitarian crisis.

“The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers,” Trump said in a statement. “When I left office, we had achieved the most secure border in our country’s history. Under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before. He has violated his oath of office to uphold our Constitution and enforce our laws.”

“Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked by the Biden Administration,” Trump added, referring to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

“A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute. Many have criminal records, and many others have and are spreading covid,” he wrote, referring to COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
