Trump declares border a 'war zone,' dings Newsom for doing 'terrible job' as migrant epicenter shifts

 Former President Trump declared the Mexican border a "war zone" under President Biden, lamented the lack of cooperation from Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and rebuked Democratic governors of border states as hotbeds of migrant deluges on their lands .

During an exclusive "Hannity" interview at the border in Eagle Pass, Texas — where the former president visited earlier in the day, while President Biden met with officials at the much quieter border crossing in Brownsville — host Sean Hannity asked any Warned unaccompanied migrants could plot "the next 9/11 or worse".

Trump entertained the notion, citing thousands of immigrants from US rival countries such as Iran, China, Russia and Afghanistan.

“We have a lot coming from Iran,” he said. "There's a lot coming from the places we're fighting right now."

He highlighted his anti-terrorism credentials by citing the killings of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qassem Suleimani during his tenure, while also saying that the US border itself has become like a battlefield.

Trump said, "And Mexico is not doing anything to help us. They are allowing the caravan to come through unimpeded... Something has to be done."

He also appeared to respond to advocates' claims that many are immigrant family units who are seeking asylum and a better life from war-torn countries, instead pointing out that many of the thousands of Chinese immigrants entering the San Diego sector " Fighting" Age.

"You don't see women, and you don't see men older than that. It's 18 to 25 [or] 26 years old," Trump said. He further claimed that many migrants are coming from Yemen amid active tensions in Raid. sea, and migrants from the Democratic Republic of the Congo are largely coming from that country's prisons.

He said, "The only good thing is that it makes our prisoners look like pretty nice people, I'll tell you, because these are rough guys coming in."

Trump told Hannity that he believes immigrants are being treated better by the government than U.S. veterans, saying that many vets have faced long waits for health care, while immigrants are treated. Is done for "free".

He insisted, "If you come to our country illegally, you get things and that's why they're coming: The incentives are great."

Trump compared Texas' response under GOP Governor Greg Abbott to the remaining border states that have Democratic governors.

Specifically, he called out California Governor Gavin Newsom and Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs, saying Newsom has done a "terrible job" in terms of the entry of millions of migrants and the exodus of many civilian residents.

He called Arizona a "problem" in terms of the border and described Hobbs as "very liberal."

However, Trump praised one high-profile Democratic official: New York Mayor Eric Adams – whom he said is "trying" to handle the migrant surge, which has strained the city's resources and led to an increase in crime. A wave has been created.

"He wants to do the job but it's impossible," Trump said of Adams. Adams recently signaled a willingness to loosen New York City's "sanctuary" policies and cooperate more with ICE, prompting a rebuke from his own Democratic supermajority City Council.

Adams was quickly slapped down by City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams, D-Jamaica, who called the mayor's idea "harmful" and said the chamber — which her party controls 45-6 — would not make legislative changes.

During his remarks at the border earlier Thursday, Trump accused Biden of liability for violent migrant crimes, saying, "Crooked Joe has the blood of countless innocent victims [on his hands]."
