President Biden blamed the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border in part on former President Trump’s policies.
Trump “dismantled all the elements that exist to deal with what had been a problem, and has been continuing to be a problem for a long time,” Biden alleged. “What we’re doing now is attempting to rebuild the system that can accommodate what is happening today.”
Biden added, “He in fact shut down the number of beds available, he did not fund HHS…to get the children out of the Border Patrol facilities.”
ABC News reporter Cecelia Vega pointed out to Biden that one mother she spoke with said she sent her nine-year-old son to the border by himself because she believed Biden wouldn’t deport him.
