AUSTIN, TX – Former President of the the United States Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he will be coming to Texas at the end of the month to tour the southern border with Gov. Greg Abbott.
The following is the full statement from the 45th President:
"I have accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott to join him on an official visit to our Nation's decimated Southern Border on Wednesday, Jun. 30, 2021.
"The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S. History and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crises in U.S. history. It's an unmitigated disaster zone. 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. 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.
"If this weren't bad enough, Biden and Harris won't even tour the scenes of the wreckage they created or come down and visit with the Border Patrol and ICE heroes risking their lives to defend our Nation at a time when the White House is doing everything it can to make their job totally impossible. What Biden and Harris have done, and are continuing to do on our border, is a grave and willful dereliction of duty.
"My visit will hopefully shine a spotlight on these crimes against out Nation–and show the incredible people of ICE and Border Patrol that they have our unshakeable support."
In McAllen that day the Texas True Patriots, Latinos United for America, American Up, Laredo Trump Train, Alamo City Trump Train, and the Latinos 4 Trump will host a Trump Border Rally at S. 10th St. and Bales Rd. The rally will kick off at 9 a.m.
