Trump fumes over alien criminals during Texas border visit

Feb 29, 2024 | Political News

Appearing in the town of Eagle Pass, Texas, on Thursday, former President Donald Trump fumed over the situation at the southern border and asserted that foreign nations were taking advantage of the security failures on the Mexican frontier to send their prison populations to the United States.

Eagle Pass has become a critical entry point for illegal aliens amid the unprecedented surge in crossings. 

“They're coming from jails and they're coming from prisons and they're coming from mental institutions… it's horrible,” Trump said. “I know many of the leaders of these other countries that are doing it… they're emptying out [prisons] because they're dumping them into the United States. They're pouring into our country and they're bringing with them tremendous problems.”
