Former President Donald Trump has slammed his boss, Joe Biden’s, stance on the contentious border wall with Mexico.
In an interview broadcast on Fox News Saturday night, Trump called Biden’s decision to reverse the “Remain in Mexico” programme a “very wrong decision.”
The Migrant Security Protocols (MPP) scheme, which started in 2019, turned back those persons from Mexico in compliance with Section 235(b)(2)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
Trump told Judge Jeanine Pirro by phone that many people expected him to reach the border and that he would do so in the coming weeks.
“Thousands and thousands of people are coming up right now as we speak. And you’re going to have millions of people pouring into our country. And it’s going to destroy our country.
“I don’t know what they are doing and they don’t know what they are doing. It’s a very very dangerous situation. I’d love to be involved, somebody else is suppose to be doing it.
“The border patrol wants me to go over the next couple of weeks. I don’t think there’s a rush for me to go. He (Biden) is supposed to go and make the decision.
“Not only people, drugs are coming in, in a number that we’ve never seen before now. We stopped it largely. The wall was just a few weeks from being completed. He didn’t want to complete it.”
Trump recalled that it took two and half years before the wall construction commenced. He pointedly blamed the Democrats in Congress.
“Pelosi and everyone sued us 11 different times. So after we won, we started. They should finish the wall and have the Stay in Policy reinserted because if you don’t have that, this is going to be a disaster.”
In his first news conference on Thursday, President Biden announced that some families are not going back because Mexico is refusing to take them.
The American leader confirmed his administration was in negotiations with President Andrés López Obrador. “That’s going to change. They should all be going back,” he added.
