Sen. Duckworth Blames Trump for the Border Crisis, Says He Spent 4 Years Dismantling the Asylum Process

‘Frankly, [Biden] is cleaning up a mess that was left there by President Trump’

EXCERPT:

DUCKWORTH: "Well, remember that what happened was that President Trump spent four years dismantling the process — President Trump spent four years dismantling the peaceful, orderly process of allowing people to apply for asylum. For example, he cut funding to the Northern Triangle countries. He cut funding and shut down offices where immigrants could actually apply for asylum in their home countries without coming to the border so I’m very confident that President Biden is doing everything that he can but frankly, he’s cleaning up a mess that was left there by President Trump and his systematic and inhumane attacks on the immigration system."
