Former President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday he will be visiting the border with Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on June 30.
Trump released a statement saying he had accepted Abbott’s invitation and tore into the Biden-Harris administration for dismantling ‘the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S. history’ under his administration.
He announced plans for the trip days after Abbott revealed his plans for Texas to restart building on border wall using private funds.
‘We went from detain-and-remove to catch-and-release. We went from having border security that was the envy of the world to a lawless border that is now pitied around the world,’ he wrote in the release from his Save America PAC account.
‘Biden and Harris have handed control of our border over to cartels, criminals, and coyotes.
‘Drug dealers, MS-13 gang members, human smugglers, sex traffickers, and the criminal elements of the world now have free reign. Hospitals and schools are getting crushed and public health is being sacrificed all in service of a radical left anti-borders agenda.
‘Our brave border agents and courageous ICE officers have been illegally stopped from doing their jobs. Our Nation is now one giant sanctuary city where even dangerous criminals are being cut loose and set free inside the U.S interior on a daily basis.’
Trump released the statement as he was spotted outside Trump Tower on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. He waved to crowds lining the street before getting in a motorcade on the way to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
