- Trump said in his CPAC speech that gangs were ‘invading’ the country
- ‘They come from Asia. They come from the Middle East,” she said.
- He said violent criminals are “nicer than the people who come in.”
Former President Donald Trump predicted that tens of millions of immigrants will come to the country if President Biden is re-elected, and said imprisoned violent criminals are “nicer” than the people arriving.
Trump compared immigrants to criminals in his CPAC speech, where he said “ruthless gangs” would be “invading” the country if Biden were re-elected, raising the issue early in his remarks that lasted well over an hour.
‘Suddenly we start to like our prisoners and our horrible violent criminals because they are nicer than the people who are arriving. They come from Asia. They come from the Middle East. “They come from all over the world, from Africa, and we are not going to tolerate it anymore as a country,” Trump said.
‘We are not going to tolerate it anymore. They are destroying our country.’

Trump said people were coming from “countries no one had ever heard of” and said people were coming from “prisons in the Congo.”
‘Let me tell you, the only good thing is that they make our prisoners and our bad gang members look like very nice people in comparison. That’s the good thing,’ he stated.
It was just his latest denunciation of the influx of immigrants, in a speech in which he described a bleak future if President Biden wins a second term that came on the day of the South Carolina primary.
‘The worst is yet to come. “Our country will go and see levels that were unimaginable,” Trump said, changing the title from Frank Sinatra’s hit.
“With four more years of Biden, the hordes of illegal aliens stampeding across our borders will exceed 40 or 50 million people,” he said.

The Federal Correctional Institution, Allenwood Low, is one of many federal prisons in the United States. Trump said immigrants made American prisoners look ‘nicer’
“Medicare, Social Security, health care and public education will collapse and collapse,” he said.
“The ruthless gangs are going to explode even more in the suburbs,” Trump said, then changed the subject to say that suburban women “are going to love me so much.”
‘The gangs will be invading your territory. He said Hamas and Antifa “will terrorize our streets…China will dominate us.”
He also referenced the authorities he invoked as president citing health concerns as a way to deny entry to migrants seeking asylum.
“We don’t want to have this contagion in our country,” Trump said.
Trump’s immigration rhetoric has long been a powerful political tool, but it has also generated backlash, as happened in 2016 when he said Mexico was sending “rapists” to the country and called for the first time for a “Muslim ban.”
It comes during an election year in which voters consider immigration a top concern. President Biden himself has begun to take a harder public line, and a failed deal to help Ukraine and Israel included new funding for border agents and judges.
