"We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history", the statement reads".
A violent father-in-law and a stagnant economy had pushed her to leave Guatemala City, she said, where she had once worked as a school psychologist but had spent the last few years as a street vendor.
President Joe Biden, whom many migrants see as more welcoming than his predecessor, pushed back Thursday against suggestions that his administration's immigration policies are responsible for the rising numbers. "I think we're going to see that change", he said. Children traveling alone are allowed to remain in the U.S.to pursue asylum while almost all single adults are expelled to Mexico under pandemic-era rules that deny them a chance to seek humanitarian protection.
Trump also said that Mexico had 28,000 soldiers who stopped people from coming in to the United States, before then touting his signature border wall. Her husband already made it there with their son from Honduras.
"On the other side of the river we have been listening to and seeing cartel members - human traffickers - right on the other side of the river waving flashlights, yelling and taunting Americans, taunting the border patrol", he said.

Previously, Barrasso stated that "The American people should be able to see for themselves the crisis that the Biden admin's policies have created".
Michel Maeco, who sold his land in Guatemala to pay smugglers $35,000 to bring his family of five, including children aged 15, 11 and 7, said he was going home after a 25-day journey. "You have to stop the flow, you have to tell mother that she will no longer be released in the United States".
O'Rourke added, "If you're looking for a crisis to cosplay Senator for, I'm happy to point you in the right direction".
Graham's message to Biden: "End this madness". "That's not going to happen on my watch because the United States is going to continue to grow".
Biden said during his press conference Thursday that he had not visited the border because it could put stress on an already precarious situation, though he did say he'd expand access to facilities where children are being held, especially for journalists.
"I would never sit here and look at you and say Tijuana is not risky, Juarez is not unsafe, Tamaulipas (state) is not risky", Scott said.
Biden told reporters he had not yet spoken to the two leaders about it, "but they know they're invited".
It is now obvious that the entire Democratic media terror campaign a year ago to demand slavish obedience to the most alarmist scientists and shut down as much of the economy and normal life of the country as possible, in order to portray President Trump as the author of a public health disaster and bottomless economic depression, was, as many of us suggested, tactical.
