Last week, at a campaign trip in South Carolina, Trump pledged to return a large number of illegal immigrants who are already within the boundaries of the United States of America “Straight Back Home.”
The presidential contender for 2024 made these statements at the same time a fresh investigation revealed that approximately 300,000 ‘Gotaways’ escaped Border Agents in less than four months since October 2022.
Tennesse Rep. Mark Green reported numbers that are simply shocking:
CBP has caught 152 terror watchlist suspects out of 4.5 million encounters since 2021.
Now add 1.2 million gotaways.
Using the same percentage, we can assume there are 41 additional terror watchlist suspects among the gotaways.
This is a horrifying number.”

Trump is correct to recognize that Americans are concerned about this shocking national peril.
“Trump spoke about the border crisis that has exponentially worsened during the Biden administration. He echoed past statements that other countries aren’t sending their best when it comes to the migrant surge and said the situation needs to get “straightened out fast,” The Political Insider reported, adding:
“They’re sending people that are killers, murderers, they’re sending rapists, and they’re sending, frankly, terrorists or terrorists are coming on their own, and frankly we can’t allow this to happen,” Trump told the audience.
“So the illegal border crossers are going to be sent straight back home,” he said. “Those bad ones, especially, and they’re gonna go fast.”

Political Insider went on:
Trump’s hardline approach to illegal immigrants crossing our border comes as sources with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have indicated 293,993 known “gotaways” have evaded agents since the beginning of the 2023 fiscal year.
