As the number of migrants attempting to enter the country continues to rise, former president, Donald Trump, has issued a stern warning to President Biden.
Scroll on to hear what he had to say...
Now, many would argue that our country is currently experiencing one of its worst migrant crises in decades.
Since April 2020, the number of migrants being stopped at the U.S.-Mexico border has been steadily rising and, under a public health order issued by Trump, Title 42, the Biden administration has been rapidly denying most single adults and families entry into the country.
However, the order has been allowing teenagers and children to stay...
And they have been arriving in ever larger numbers.
As of Sunday, March 14th, more than 4,000 migrant children were being held by the Border Patrol custody...
Including at least 3,000 being held in custody longer than the seventy-two-hour limit set by a court order, a U.S. official told AP.
The number of children crossing by themselves, mostly from Central America, appears to be surging in particular in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.
The Border Patrol took in 280 there alone last Monday.
As a result of this, President Biden has been put in a difficult position.
Biden has labeled the detention of migrants as a "moral failing and a national shame" and promises to "welcome immigrants in our communities" on his official website, which has left many feeling confused and somewhat frustrated with the current situation at the border.
He has been slammed by Republicans for what they view as an encouragement to illegal border crossers...
And has even been criticized by some Democrats over what they see as the prolonged detention of minors.
Well, it didn't take long for him to address the issue.
Speaking to ABC News last week, the president was grilled on the ongoing migrant crisis by George Stephanopoulos.
Biden first denied that he should have anticipated the surge in migrants...
Saying that he had instead sought to phase out Donald Trump's hardline immigration policies and embrace a more "humane" approach.
He then pointed out that there had been migrant surges in the past...
"First of all, there was a surge in the last 2 years. In '19 and '20, there was a surge, as well."
Stephanopoulos then noted, "This one might be worse," before Biden acknowledged, "Well, it could be."
But he then added, "Here's the deal: we are sending back people."
"The idea that Joe Biden said: 'Come' - because I heard the other day that they're coming because they know I'm a nice guy... Here's the deal, they're not."
"I can say quite clearly: Don't come over. Don't leave your town or city or community."

"Yes," Pres. Biden says. "I think he'll probably end up being prosecuted, too.” https://t.co/a6qfOJ9Byp pic.twitter.com/EiC63wtnUo
But, just a week on from those comments, Biden evidently buckled under the pressure he had been getting over the people currently stuck at the border.
This week, the president spent approximately $86 million on hotel rooms near the U.S-Mexico border to house migrants.
The Biden administration has secured the $86 million contract for hotel rooms to house immigrants, said to be able to support 1,200 family members, Axios reports.
The contract was awarded via Texas-based nonprofit organization, Endeavors...
And will provide the rooms for at least 6 months.
But, of course, it didn't take too long for former president, Donald Trump to wade into the equation.
On Tuesday, he told Fox News that the crisis was "destroying our country."
"It is a crisis like we have rarely had and certainly we have never had on the border. But it is going to get much worse. What we are seeing now is very bad - record numbers."
But now, a week on from that comment...
Trump has spoken out once again about the ongoing crisis, and has offered a little word of advice to his successor.
Appearing on the podcast, The Truth with Lisa Boothe, Trump once again discussed Biden's handling of the surge of migrants.
He first warned of the "dangerous criminals" crossing the border, saying:
"You have some really bad ones coming, really dangerous criminals coming up, and we're allowing them to come right into our country. It's insane. And it's nothing compared to what it's going to be over the coming months."
And then, to offer the piece of advice that no one asked for...
He brought up his infamous wall.
A predominant part of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign was his promise to build a wall along the 1,954 mile-long U.S-Mexico border but, so far, only eighty miles of said wall has actually been built.
Well, Trump wants Biden to finish it.
Trump said his advice to Biden on the border was to "finish the wall," adding that his long-promised border wall "is just about finished."
"You could finish it in a month," he said.
Do you think Biden will take his advice?
