In an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday, former president Donald Trump stated that Central American countries were being allowed to “empty their prisons into the US,” Summit News reported.
“All they [had] to do was leave [the border] alone,” Trump explained. “The wall was almost complete.”
Trump noted that illegal immigration, which the Biden administration has brazenly disregarded, was not the only consequence of leaving the border unattended since he left office.
“[O]ne thing you didn’t see was drugs,” he said.
“Drugs were at their lowest point—in particular Fentanyl, which is a brutal drug,” he continued. “It was stopped, it was at a level we had not seen in a long time.”
But the addiction scourge was among the many Dumpster fires that had re-emerged under Trump’s predecessor, President Joe Biden.
“Now it’s coming in at levels that we have never seen: Three, four, five times more than we ever had coming in… There’s something wrong,” Trump said. “You wouldn’t believe you could even say this, but somebody doesn’t love our country.”
Trump pointed out that hundreds of thousands of Central Americans have been coming through the porous border at a consistent rate.
“Some of the toughest people on earth are being dumped into the United States because they don’t want them,” he explained.
“They don’t want to take care of them for the next 40 years,” he continued. “These people that are the roughest prisoners, anywhere, are being dumped into the United States for us to take care of them.”
