Former President Donald Trump’s allies have pointed to the border crisis under President Joe Biden as proof that the immigration policies of the last administration were the right course of action, and should not have been rolled back.

Several ex-Trump administration officials and Capitol Hill supporters said Biden inherited a stable situation at the U.S.’ southwestern border, but “screwed it all up” during his first two month’s in office.

According to the latest Customs and Border Protection data, officers patrolling the U.S.’ southwestern border found more than 100,400 people attempting entry into the U.S. in February alone.

Around 30,000 unaccompanied children have been among those encountered at the border since the start of the year. CNN has reported that more than 5,000 children are in CBP custody.
