Joe Biden has placed Democrats in a highly vulnerable position.
But they’re hoping one underhanded trick will save them.
And Donald Trump just warned Republicans to watch out for this major trap.
Former President Donald Trump blasted the Senate’s border bill on Monday, calling it a “trap” set up by the Democrats.
“Only a fool, or a Radical Left Democrat, would vote for this horrendous Border Bill, which only gives Shutdown Authority after 5000 Encounters a day, when we already have the right to CLOSE THE BORDER NOW, which must be done,” Trump posted on Truth Social on Monday morning.
“This Bill is a great gift to the Democrats, and a Death Wish for The Republican Party,” Trump continued. “It takes the HORRIBLE JOB the Democrats have done on Immigration and the Border, absolves them, and puts it all squarely on the shoulders of Republicans. Don’t be STUPID!!!”
Trump added that Democrats are the ones who “broke Immigration and the Border. They should fix it.”
In an additional post on Monday, Trump said the border bill was “ridiculous” and “nothing more than a highly sophisticated trap for Republicans to assume the blame on what the Radical Left Democrats have done to our Border, just in time for our most important EVER Election. Don’t fall for it!!!”
House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) also slammed the bill during an interview with Fox News.
“It would not resolve any of the problems, not reform in any meaningful way the broken asylum system, the broken parole process, and all the things that have created this catastrophe,” Johnson told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“And, by the way, meanwhile, it further empowers the very Cabinet secretary who designed and created this mess.”
“They don’t follow federal law,” he continued. “Why would we do this anyway? But the bill itself would actually do more harm than good, and that’s why we have said it’s a nonstarter over here in the House.”
Illegal entry into the United States is already against the law.
But Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued guidelines at the beginning of the Biden presidency stating illegal entry into America “should not alone be the basis” for immigration authorities to arrest or deport someone.
In the meantime, Biden says it’s impossible to address the immigration crisis without the border bill which would allow an average of 5,000 immigrants to enter America illegally every day – which totals over 1.8 million a year.
“If that bill were the law today, I’d shut down the border right now and fix it quickly,” Biden said Saturday to Democrats in Columbia, South Carolina.
