“President Biden has systemically and unilaterally undermined border security. He has incentivized illegal immigration. Anything else he is saying is gaslighting from President Biden to the American people,” Hinson stated on Breitbart News Saturday.
She continued, “The vast expansion of catch and release has destroyed our safety, not to mention the problem that this going to create for years to come for our country.”
Boyle then requested about Biden’s declare that Trump and MAGA Republicans are guilty for the border disaster. Johnson told Breitbart News this week these remarks are “offensive.”
“Iowans do not buy into the fact that President Trump caused this. They know that President Biden caused this. Rewind the tape to his first day in office. That’s when we saw the numbers drastically change. One of his very first actions as president was to halt border wall construction. He issued the moratorium on deportations, then had his cabinet secretary come and lie to Congress, including myself in our appropriations committee hearing about border enforcement,” she stated.
Boyle then famous that Trump has captured a lot of the vitality across the 2024 election by specializing in the border disaster. In an interview with Breitbart News, Trump called the border disaster a “migration of civilization into our country.”
Boyle requested Hinson if immigration needs to be the “centerpiece” of the 2024 election.
Hinson agreed, saying it “absolutely should.”
She continued “I’ve endorsed President Trump because look at that contrast. Rewind to three years ago, since Joe Biden took office, there have been seven million illegal immigrant apprehensions at our southern border, which doesn’t even include the getaways.”
