The U.S. is embroiled in an immigration crisis, which has taken the lives of over 100,000 Americans because of the fentanyl that has poured across our wide-open southern border. As such, former president Donald Trump, whose border policies were successful and kept notorious Mexican cartels at bay, is offering his vision for tackling the crisis.
The former president recently appeared at the Florida Freedom Summit in Kissimmee, Florida, where he outlined his vision for reducing illegal immigration in America, as reported by the Post Millennial.
Trump’s remarks at the event drew thunderous applause from the crowd, unlike other GOP presidential contenders on stage such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R).
The former president pointed out that if he’s elected president in 2024, he would stop providing money to organizations facilitating illegal immigration.
“All of these caravans that are coming up will not get one more cent of American money,” Trump told the crowd, drawing applause.
“You know, when you explain, ‘no money, no anything, no education, we’re not going to take care of you better than our vets.’ You know, they get taken care of with Biden, better than our great vets who are living on streets. We had that situation taken care of so well and now it’s right back where it started,” he added.
“And for any radical left charity, nonprofit or so-called ‘aid organization’ supporting these caravans and illegal aliens. We will prosecute them for their participation in human trafficking, child smuggling, and every other crime we can…” the former president continued.

Trump’s remarks come as illegal immigration hits record highs in the U.S. month after month.
In October 2023, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security eerily reported that 2 million immigrants made their way into America through the southern border since January 2023 – a stark contrast to the 500,000 illegal immigrants who came into the country during Trump’s last year in office.
Trump also spoke about the “unbelievably successful” travel ban his administration enacted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“From day one, I will restore the Trump travel ban on entering from having people that like to blow up our shopping centers and kill our people and do lots of bad things,” he said.
The former president concluded his remarks on the southern border crisis by saying that, given the conflict in the Middle East, individuals who despise America or Israel will not be allowed to enter the country under a Trump administration in 2025.
