Former President Trump called out President Biden for not giving more time to the border crisis in his speech Wednesday night. This comes over a month since Biden named Vice President Harris as his border czar but she hasn’t made any official statement on the situation either.
Trump appeared on “Mornings with Maria” to share what struck him about the address in an exclusive interview. As President, he started construction on a border wall and implemented hard-line immigration policies.
“Tens of thousands of people are pouring into our country,” Trump said, adding that it’s “a level that has never been seen before.”

Border Crisis by the numbers: in January agents seize 500lbs drugs and 70 criminals with outstanding warrants
The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.
Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.
The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.
There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
