Securing Our Borders and Reclaiming America’s Sovereignty
February 07, 2023
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.
The U.S. Border Patrol has reported three times as many illegal border crossings under Joe Biden than while Donald Trump was President. The Biden administration continues to break records for historic illegal border crossings, tallying an estimated 5.5 million illegal border crossings since taking office.
On average, more than 200,000 illegal immigrants—equivalent to the population of Salt Lake City—are crossing our border every single months since Biden was sworn in as president.
In his first year in office, Biden passed nearly 90 executive orders undoing successful Trump border and immigration policies. Since, Joe Biden has encouraged unending migration. On January 5, Biden announced unilateral executive mass amnesty and work permits for 30,000 new illegals every month before they even reach our borders—allowing migrants to apply for entry from a mobile app.
As a result, foreign nationals from around the world and deadly drugs continue to flow across the southern border. In Joe Biden’s America, 300 people are poisoned with fentanyl each day. Tragically, 110,236 Americans died from drug overdose in 2022, the highest number ever recorded. In 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that the average life expectancy in the U.S. had dropped to its lowest point in nearly 20 years.
On Joe Biden’s watch, record amounts of deadly fentanyl have entered the country through ports of entry and illegal border crossings. In 2022, Border Patrol agents seized over 2,200 pounds of fentanyl in the possession of illegal border crossers.
The Biden administration immediately revived the “catch-and-release” policy, sparking a surge in illegal border crossings since Biden has taken office.
Last year alone, agents seized 50.6 million fentanyl-laced, fake prescription pills and more than 10,000 pounds of fentanyl powder—enough fentanyl to kill 379 million people—more than the entire population of the United States.
Additionally, at least 98 known or suspected terrorists attempted to cross the southern border in 2022—a figure that doesn’t include any “gotaways.” Last year, federal agents uncovered a plot by a known ISIS-affiliated immigrant to smuggle four Iraqi nationals across the open border.
While the Northern Triangle nations—comprised of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras—have continued to violate America’s sovereignty, Biden’s border czar Kamala Harris has provided record foreign aid, at least $4.2 billion to Northern Triangle countries.
Since Joe Biden took office, convicted-criminal-alien encounters—including rapes, murders, and assaults—have increased by 466% in the United States.
To conceal the true cost of the border crisis, the Biden administration has recruited NGOs to settle illegal aliens in states across the country, in exchange for federal grants worth over $137 million. Now, Biden’s DHS Secretary is seeking an additional $1 billion to fund their illegal alien resettlement effort.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
