Former President Donald Trump vowed to deploy the U.S. Navy to impose a “total fentanyl blockade on our region’s waters” during a campaign stop in Dubuque, Iowa, on Wednesday.
Trump delivered policy remarks about securing the border and stopping illegal immigration in Dubuque.
Trump attacked President Joe Biden, saying his “deadly betrayals at the border are destroying innocent lives.”
“Many people have been seriously injured and even killed by the illegal immigrants invading our country,” Trump noted. “Not a single innocent life should be destroyed by Joe Biden’s open borders agenda. In my first term, I have done more to secure our border than any president in history.
Trump then listed his plans to secure the border, which include deploying the U.S. Navy.
Trump plans to invoke “the Alien Enemies Act to deport all known or suspected gang members, drug traffickers, or cartel members from the United States” to combat the “scourge of illegal alien gang violence” .
Trump said the United States must secure our border before defending those of foreign countries.
“And I will make it clear that we must use all necessary resources to stop the invasion, including moving the thousands of troops currently stationed overseas to our OWN southern border,” Trump said. “Before we defend foreign countries’ borders, we must secure OUR country’s border.”
“I will deploy the United States Navy to impose a total blockade on fentanyl in our region’s waters, boarding and inspecting vessels for fentanyl and its precursors,” the former president added.
He also urged House Republicans to act now instead of hoping for a Republican White House victory in 2024.
“But we can’t wait until 2025 to start ending Biden’s border nightmare,” Trump said. “That’s why I’m calling on Republicans in Congress to BANNE Joe Biden from using a single taxpayer dollar to release or resettle illegal aliens in the United States starting September 30. The time for discussions is over; now is the time to take action. »
