Video clips of massive lines of migrants waiting to cross the southern border have gone viral, even as the MSM maintains its eery silence about the growing numbers of children winding up in border detention facilities - aka "cages".

As the border crisis unleashed by the Biden Administration worsens - even prompting the president to plead with migrants not to keep coming during an ABC News interview released last night - President Trump has returned for an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo where he laid into Biden for aggravating the border crisis by reinstating catch and release and rolling back other forms of enforcement.

During the prime-time interview, Trump told Bartiromo that he and Mexican President AMLO had fostered a "great relationship" (AMLO has been speaking out about the situation at the border, too, criticizing Biden for encouraging illegal immigration), and that AMLO and he had shared a joint interest in controlling illegal migration at the border.

Trump warned that the wave of migration will "destroy our country" if we don't do something about it.

"[Lopez Obrador] is a great gentleman. We had a very good relationship. They had 28,000 soldiers on our border while we were building the wall ... and they were also stopping them at their northern border by Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala," Trump said.

"Today, they are coming in. You take a look. They are coming in from foreign countries. I see they are coming in from Yemen. They are coming in from the Middle East. They are coming in from everywhere," he said. "They are dropping them off and they are pouring into our country. It is a disgrace."

"They are going to destroy our country if we don't do something about it."


"Frankly, our country can't handle [the increase in migrants]. It is a crisis like we have rarely had and certainly we have never had on the border. But it is going to get much worse."

Meanwhile, in an interview with ABC News, President Joe Biden acknowledged that the situation at the border is deteriorating, and delivered the following message to migrants seeking entry illegally into the US.

In response to a question from George Stephanopoulos about whether he had a message for the migrants, Biden replied: "Yes, I can say quite clearly: Don't come over...Don’t leave your town or city or community."

Beforehand, Biden dismissed the notion that he had somehow encouraged migrants to flood over the border with his rollback of Trump's tough-on-immigration policies.

Readers can watch a clip from that interview below:

Earlier this week, Biden's press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that the administration is doing everything it can to damn the flood of migrants.

“We recognize this as a problem. We’re focused on addressing it. That’s just five steps we’re taking, and we’re continuing to evaluate what additional steps can be taken to address the situation at the border,” she said, riddling off recent administration actions, including adding capacity for health officials to house unaccompanied minors, or children who enter the country illegally without an adult."

They're doing everything they can to address the problem...except reviving the policies that worked just months ago.
