Former President Donald Trump delivered a fiery speech at a rally in Waterford Township, Michigan, where he sharply criticized President Biden’s handling of the migrant crisis, particularly highlighting concerns over rising migrant crime rates across the country.

Trump’s Critique of Biden’s Border Policies Takes Center Stage

In his address, Trump lamented the reversal of his administration’s border policies, which he claimed had achieved the most secure border in U.S. history. 

He pointed to the dismantling of initiatives such as Catch and Release and the construction of 561 miles of border wall as pivotal achievements in curbing illegal immigration.

Trump expressed disbelief at the sudden surge in border crossings under the Biden administration, attributing it to the reversal of his policies. 

He described the influx of migrants as unprecedented and warned of its detrimental impact on various segments of society, including minority communities, union workers, and individuals with high-paying jobs.

Trump Unveils “Migrant Crime” Category

Drawing attention to the economic ramifications of unchecked migration, Trump cautioned against the erosion of union wages and the displacement of American workers by low-wage migrant labor. He warned that the influx of migrants, irrespective of their skill level, would result in job losses for millions of Americans.

In a notable departure from conventional terminology, Trump introduced the concept of “migrant crime” to describe the surge in criminal activities perpetrated by migrants. 

He criticized President Biden for allowing the proliferation of such crimes, alleging a lack of adequate measures to address the issue.

A Call for Strong Deportation Measures

Asserting the need for decisive action, Trump pledged to initiate the largest deportation effort in U.S. history to address the escalating migrant crime wave. 

He emphasized the importance of cooperation between federal and local law enforcement agencies in identifying and apprehending criminal offenders among migrant populations.

Trump underscored the local impact of migrant crime, citing reports of organized criminal gangs infiltrating Michigan communities and preying on residents. He urged attendees to take heed of the alarming trend and emphasized the importance of voting against policies that perpetuate such insecurity.

YouTube commenters shared their opinions: “A few years ago I thought it was the right thing to do, let people in for safety (or whatever reason), but I will tell you this, i live 7 miles from the border and the line of people coming in IS endless, seeing that for years straight now, I think very differently. It’s too many at all at once, its chaotic, its unorganized and it needs to be done differently. And I don’t honestly know at what point too many becomes too many but that number has got to exist…”

A lot of commenters don’t agree with Trump: “I mean, now I can honestly blame Trump for the border situation because he’s the reason why the bill that would’ve helped got shut down. Trump’s base will probably continue to “rail” against the border but now it’s just another example of Trump setting a fire so he can put it out. The big thing this time though is said fire is on someone else’s lawn.”

Others have some questions: “Where is the wall Trump promised he would build and have Mexico pay, even though there was a Republican majority in both houses during his administration?”

Rally Attendees Urged to Vote Against Biden’s Policies

In closing, Trump called upon rally attendees to mobilize against what he described as a “regime” detrimental to democracy. He criticized the Biden administration’s handling of various issues, including immigration and law enforcement, and urged voters to hold elected officials accountable in upcoming elections.
