2024 GOP frontrunner President Donald Trump revealed that were he to win back the White House, he would not be tolerating groups who assist with illegal immigration. He offered a plan to go after those groups legally whenever necessary during the Florida Freedom Summit held in Kissimmee, Florida on Saturday.
“All of these caravans that are coming up will not get one more cent of American money,” Trump told the crowd.
“You know, when you explain, ‘no money, no anything, no education, we're not going to take care of you better than our vets.' You know, they get taken care of with Biden, better than our great vets who are living on streets. We had that situation taken care of so well and now its right back where it started started. And for any radical left charity, nonprofit or so-called ‘aid organization' supporting these caravans and illegal aliens. We will prosecute them for their participation in human trafficking, child smuggling, and every other crime we can…”
These comments by Trump come as illegal immigration in the United States is hitting all-time highs. Just last month, data from the Department of Homeland Security found that over 2 million illegal immigrants were seen making their way into the United States via the southern border in Fiscal Year 2023 alone. During Trump's last year in office, less than 500,000 came in.
In other stunning illegal immigration figures, the total amount of illegal immigration from Asia and Africa to the United States has tripled since just last year, with 214,000 arrests made in FY 2023 as compared to about 70,000 FY 2022. This is up from another sharp increase, with the number being recorded at around 19,000 in 2021.
The former president also touched on his formerly enacted travel ban, which he said was “unbelievably successful.” The goal was to keep people out from countries that harbor terrorists.
“From day one, I will restore the Trump travel ban on entering from having people that like to blow up our shopping centers and kill our people and do lots of bad things,” he proclaimed. “Entry from terror-plagued countries. We will not allow people to come in and we will implement strong ideological screening for all immigrants. We did that and it was unbelievably successful. It was done at the Supreme Court. They approved it and a lot of people were a little surprised, but it was a great thing.”
“If you hate America, if you want to abolish Israel, If you sympathize with jihadists and then you don't want your country to do well,” added Trump. “You don't want your country to be successful. You're just not going to get in you're not getting in you're not coming into our country.”
Trump put Joe Biden on blast for policies he has enacted, including on education, American energy, and the US-souther border.
“Crooked Joe Biden always takes the side that helps America's enemies of the time,” Trump declared. “The guy doesn't have a clue. He helps the enemies and now we know why…”
