Securing Our Borders and Reclaiming America’s Sovereignty

March 07, 2024

President Donald J. Trump secured America’s southern border and will wage war on the deadly cartels once he returns to the Oval Office. Meanwhile, Joe Biden has handed over complete control of the U.S. southern border to the dangerous cartels and put American communities in danger.


Within his first 100 days in office, Biden rolled back important Trump-era policies, including Remain in Mexico and construction of a border wall, that ensured a secure border.


Since then, more than 9 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border.


This includes the more than 7.2 million illegal immigrants that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has encountered and the 1.8 million know gotaways that have escaped past Border Patrol into the U.S.


Border officials say the official number of gotaways vastly undercounts the illegal immigrants who make it into the U.S.


For 35 straight months, monthly encounters have been higher than even the highest month seen under the Trump administration.


Biden has set record after record along the southern border.


169 people on the terror watchlist were encountered at the southern border in FY 2023, breaking the all-time record of 98 set in 2022.


In December, more than 300,000 illegal immigrants were encountered at the southern border, the highest in a single month in DHS history.


Fiscal year 2023 was the highest number of illegal border crossings in history, surpassing the record set in fiscal year 2022.


Migrants themselves say Biden’s border policies have encouraged them to come.


Biden has unilaterally paroled over a million illegal immigrants using a 1950s law in an “unprecedented” way.


The Department of Health and Human Services lost track of more than 85,000 unaccompanied minors after responding to Biden’s demands to “move the children quickly out of shelters” by rolling back important vetting and safeguard procedures.


Homeland Security Investigations estimates that Mexican cartels are now making $13 billion a year smuggling illegal immigrants into the U.S., 26 times what they made in 2018.


President Trump secured our southern border and honored the U.S. Border Patrol.


President Trump built over 400 miles of the world’s most robust and advanced border wall, resulting in an 87% reduction in illegal border crossings where the wall stands.[16]


The Trump administration made keeping America’s borders secure and Americans safe a top priority and the Department of Justice prosecuted a record number of immigration-related cases.[17]


President Trump ended the dangerous policy of “catch-and-release,” which allowed illegal aliens to be released into the United States, often never to be seen again. 


To combat asylum claim abuse and backlog for authentic asylum claims, the Trump administration trained frontline Border Patrol agents to assist USCIS perform credible fear screenings for illegal border crossers.[18]


Under President Trump, the United States entered a historic partnership with the Mexican government to deploy tens of thousands of Mexican soldiers to secure their side of the border. Additionally, President Trump ordered nearly 5,000 troops to the southern border.[19]


President Trump has pledged to shut down Biden’s border disaster. He will again end catch-and-release, restore Remain in Mexico, and eliminate asylum fraud.


President Trump’s Plan to Secure the Border and Reclaim National Sovereignty


President Trump’s plan to secure the border includes a commitment to declare war and defeat the cartels, just as President Trump did with ISIS.


In addition to restoring strong border security, President Trump will deploy all necessary military assets, including the U.S. Navy to impose a full naval embargo on the cartels.


President Trump has also committed to direct the Department of Defense to make appropriate use of special forces, cyber warfare, and other overt and covert actions to inflict maximum damage on cartel leadership, infrastructure, and operations.


President Trump has pledged to designate the dangerous cartels as foreign terrorist organizations, to curb their access to global financial systems.


Additionally, President Trump has vowed to form an unprecedented partnership with neighboring governments in our region to defeat these cartels. President Trump is prepared to take every action, including exposing every bribe, payoff, and corruption that is allowing the cartels to continue their brutal reign.


President Trump will work with Congress to pass legislation that ensures drug smugglers and human traffickers receive the death penalty.
