The president of the United States, Joe Biden, affirmed this Sunday that he will travel to the border with Mexico, before the increased arrival of undocumented immigrants, while his predecessor, Donald Trump, accused him of having created “a national disaster.”

Biden assured that he knows what the situation is in the migrant detention centers on the border, when one of the reporters told him if with that visit he wanted to know first-hand the conditions in this type of facility.
The president stressed that, apart from the message of his Administration to recommend not to travel to those who are thinking of going to the United States through its southern border, your Executive will adopt more measures.
“We are in the process now, including ensuring that we restore what was before, which was that (immigrants) can stay and present their cases from their countries of origin,” he explained.

“All they had to do was maintain a system that ran smoothly on autopilot he opined. Instead, in the span of a few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. ”
Trump called Mayorkas’ interventions on television “pathetic”, “useless” and “national disgrace”: “His self-indulgent presentation in the midst of a massive crisis that he has helped create is further proof that he is incapable of lead the DHS “, sentenced.
The former president urged the resumption of the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico, one of his star proposals and that was paralyzed by Biden on his first day in the White House, and assured that drugs are entering the United States through the border, in addition to there being sexual and human trafficking.
“The reckless policies of this Administration are allowing and encouraging crimes against humanity. Our country is being destroyed!”, clamó Trump.
