Donald Trump Shares Harsh Words For The Migrant Crisis In Texas

The crisis at the Mexican-Texas border is not an invention of any one president. Migrants have been trying to enter the United States for years under asylum laws, fleeing dangerous situations in Central America and other countries. Just before his term ended, former President Donald Trump tried to enact more asylum restrictions, according to the Associated Press. As of this writing, there has been yet another migrant surge, with refugees from Haiti trying to make their way to the U.S. (via the New York Post).

Trump began his presidential campaign disparaging immigrants who come across the U.S. southern border, famously calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and drug dealers during his candidacy in 2016 (via Insider). Trump's feelings about immigration clearly have not changed. Although he has been banned from social media outlets since the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, Trump still has seemingly found a way around that by communicating with his followers via emails. These emails are often picked up by media outlets that then amplify them on social media and in published articles.

Donald Trump's feelings about immigrants at the Southern border haven't changed

While approximately 14,000 Haitians are living outdoors in camps under a Texas border bridge and the Biden administration scrambles to get them back to Haiti via plane, Donald Trump has lashed out against them and what they could turn America into, at least in his mind, according to the New York Post.

"The largest number of illegal aliens in the history of our Country are pouring in by the millions. They are totally unchecked and unvetted, can do whatever they want, and go wherever they want​," Trump said in an email on September 19. "​Our Country is rapidly becoming a cesspool of humanity. Murderers, drug dealers, and criminals of all shapes and sizes are a big part of this massive migration​."

Trump also called the situation at the Texas border a "Crisis Crisis," while adding: "Tens of thousands of people are coming from Haiti, and many now from countries in Africa, even more so now than South America. Nothing is done and the corrupt Mainstream Media is giving almost no attention to what will be perhaps the greatest Crisis in the history of our Country" (via The New York Post).
