The Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly talked about how Obama’s relaxed border security made America more dangerous. He described the greatest threat to America “transnational criminal organizations” or TCO’s.
“There is no better argument for secure borders than TCOs. And since the first week of President Trump’s administration, we have been actively securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws. Not only is this our right as a sovereign nation—it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of the American public,” said Kelly.
“People who illegally cross our borders do not respect the laws of our nation. We want to get the law breakers off our streets, and out of the country, for the good of our communities,” he said.
He talked about how since Trump became President the number of illegal aliens coming into our country has gone down significantly. “But make no mistake—we are a nation under attack. We are under attack from criminals who think their greed justifies raping young girls at knifepoint, dealing poison to our youth, or killing just for fun,” said Kelly.
“We are under attack from people who hate us, hate our freedoms, hate our laws, hate our values, hate the way we simply live our lives. We are under attack from failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals. And we are under attack every single day. The threats are relentless,” said Kelly.
