Lara Trump, who is the daughter-in-law of former President Donald J. Trump, has recently issued a stark warning to American residents living along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump advised for these residents to “get guns” and “arm up,” given the massive surge of migrants stampeding their way.
Referring to Joe Biden’s response to the border as “disgraceful,” Trump argued that Biden was directly responsible for creating a dangerous situation for Americas living in border communities.
During an appearance on Fox News, Trump informed Jeanine Pirro that she does not know “what to tell the people that live at the southern border,” though she finds it advisable that they arm themselves with guns and be prepared for the influx of migrants.
Trump also added that it might be necessary for residents to “start taking matters into their own hands,” stating that the entire border situation is one that should have never happened, and that “people should never make this dangerous journey here.”
Numerous critics on the left scrutinized Trump’s remarks and claimed that her commentary, which they perceived as a call to arms, presumably mirrored her father-in-law’s statements prior to the events of January 6.
According to Cenk Uygur, who was a previous congressional candidate, Trump was apparently “inciting violence by calling on right-wing lunatic vigilantes to take up arms on the border.” Uygur also snidely added that calls for violence appear common to the Trump family.
Rosanna Arquette, an actress, also agreed, and she promptly referred to Trump as a “terrorist.”
Donald J. Trump was previously impeached on the basis of purportedly inciting insurrection against the government, with his words and actions prior to the attack cited as evidence. However, the former president was ultimately acquitted in the Senate, just as he had been acquitted from his first impeachment trial, which involved two charges related to the Ukraine.
Lara Trump, who intends to fun for the open U.S. Senate in the state of North Carolina, emphasized the fact that minors in particular should not attempt “the dangerous journey” to the United States.
She observed that it is not only “bad for Americans,” but that it is also “bad for the migrants” and “bad all around.”
In April, U.S. Customs and Border Protection released reports detailing encounters with 178,000 migrants in April, which constitutes an increase of 5,000 since March. For 2021 thus far, the agency reports 749,600 encounters, which contrasts with 458,088 encounters in 2020.
Kamala Harris recently journeyed to Guatemala in order to address the crisis at the border, and she also told Guatemalan residents “do not come” to the United States illegally.
In March, Biden requested for Harris to spearhead his administration’s efforts to mitigate the massive flow of migrants attempting to enter the United States through the U.S.-Mexico border.
