Donald Trump Visits U.S.-Mexico Border
In the 14 weeks since Joe Biden put Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis, more than 500,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border into the United States. For the first time in 21 years, Border Patrol agents are stopping more than 35,000 illegal immigrants each and every week.
Biden’s job approval ratings on immigration lag his poll numbers on other issues considerably. A recent poll by the Associated Press and the norc Center for Public Affairs Research found that only 24 percent of adults approved of the way Biden was handling the flood of migrant children into the country. Even among Democrats, only 44 percent of poll respondents approved of how Biden was handling this crisis. Unchecked immigration is undermining confidence in the Biden administration and could prove to be Joe Biden’s Achilles’ heel if the crisis continues much longer.
When Harris made her first trip as vice president to the nation’s southern border on June 25, she deliberately visited El Paso to keep the media far away from crisis areas. “They took her to a point in the border where she wouldn’t see the crisis and so the press wouldn’t report on the crisis,” Sen. Ron Johnson told Fox News. “And of course, that’s what’s been going on. … We literally are apprehending now about 6,000 people per day. That’s … a large caravan every day being processed, some of them being returned, others are being dispersed. But this crisis is not going away.”
Donald Trump did not make this mistake when he visited the border with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on June 30. The two leaders visited Weslaco, Texas, which is near the crisis area. During the visit, President Trump held a roundtable meeting with Governor Abbot and later visited a portion of the unfinished border wall. During the roundtable, President Trump warned that America is in a sick state. “We have a sick country in many ways,” he said. “It’s sick in elections, and it’s sick on the border. If you don’t have good elections and if you don’t have a strong border, you don’t have a country.”
During his visit to a segment of the border wall, President Trump addressed a crowd of supporters, explaining how the Biden administration is destroying America. “All Biden had to do was go to the beach,” he said. “If he had just done nothing, we would now have the strongest border we have ever had. It was even getting better and better.” President Trump then told how Central American nations refused to take deported immigrants from U.S. officials until he threatened to cut off aid to these nations. Then they started letting America send illegal immigrants back to their home countries, and border crossings dropped dramatically once people heard that Trump would not let them stay.
Now, the Biden administration has stopped construction on the border wall and let Central American nations know that the U.S. will give them aid whether or not they accept deported criminals. Border crossings have increased 700 percent in the last 12 months.
“Biden is destroying our country and it all started with a fake election,” said Trump.
President Trump also made it a point to highlight how much fentanyl from China is pouring into the United States via Mexico. Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington said in a statement to Newsweek: “President Trump is adamant about holding China accountable, not only for the virus but for the unprecedented amounts of deadly fentanyl now being allowed to pour into the United States by Joe Biden.” Federal agents say the powerful synthetic opioid is becoming a drug of choice for Mexican cartels because it’s highly profitable and easier to smuggle than other drugs.
In The United States and Britain in Prophecy, Herbert W. Armstrong showed how the peoples who settled the U.S. and Britain descended from the Israelite tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim, respectively. This means Bible prophecies about Manasseh and Ephraim are directed at the U.S. and Britain.
“Ephraim allows himself to be mixed up with foreigners; Ephraim has become a cake unturned as it was baked. Foreigners eat away his strength, unknown to him; grey hairs are on him here and there, unknown to him. (Israel’s pride shall confront and convict them; yet they will not come back to the Eternal their God, nor seek him, in spite of it all.) Ephraim is like a silly, senseless dove, crying to Egypt, flying to Assyria; but as they fly, I fling my net on them, and bring them down like a bird, punishing them for their misdeeds” (Hosea 7:8-12; Moffatt translation).
Hosea often refers to the northern 10 tribes of Israel, which split away from the kingdom of Judah, as “Ephraim,” the most prominent tribe, and “Samaria,” the capital. Yet the prophecies of Hosea were spoken to Ephraim and Manasseh at a time when both tribes were ruled by King Jeroboam ii and his successors. So when Hosea says, “Ephraim mixes himself with the peoples,” he is saying immigrants will devour Israel’s strength until it cries out to Assyria for help.
This is sobering history, but it is also an end-time prophecy for America and Britain.
“It is time for the American people to wake up!” wrote Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry in his article “Communism in America Today.” “Or is it already too late? The Prophet Hosea says that we allow ourselves ‘to be mixed up with foreigners. … Foreigners eat away his strength unknown to him’ (Hosea 7:8-9; Moffatt translation). Foreigners are eating away America’s strength, yet we don’t even realize it because we have forsaken God. It is amazing how few people will really talk about what is happening. Our people are sick in their reasoning and are faint of heart (Isaiah 1:5).”
Media reports describe the fearsome surge of migrants pouring across the border, but America’s leaders refuse to do anything about it. So the flood of foreigners will continue for months to come!
