Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Friday challenging President Joe Biden for opening up the Southern border to a wave of migrants.
“Our border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden,” Trump wrote in a statement sent to reporters.
The former president sounded the alarm over the renewed surge of migrants headed for the border after the Biden administration sent a signal that unaccompanied migrants would be welcomed into the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security predicts there will be 117,000 unaccompanied child migrants crossing the border in 2021, according to an Axios report.
“A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute,” he said.
