One of the reasons that Joe Biden is doing so badly in the polls is that the American people regard him as a failure when it comes to securing the border. Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump does much better on the subject because people believe he would do a better job than Biden. They believe that with good reason, because Trump did do a better job.
That's made the Biden team and Democrats desperate to change that equation. That's why they were salivating to have the talking point of Republicans rejecting a border bill so they could try to claim that it's the Republicans who don't want the border secure. Why would you codify a horrible bill when all that is required is that Joe Biden enforce existing law? But Biden and the Democrats want to deny that he has the power to keep things in check that Trump had, without any such bill, and they can try blaming Republicans. But Americans weren't born yesterday, most have been alive under Trump and Biden, and they know the difference. That's not good for Biden.
But now Biden is down to tossing out race-baiting falsehoods since they can't compete on honesty or ideas.

So many messed up things in that one deceitful statement from the Biden team.
Let's start with the falsehood -- Trump did not call for "rounding up millions of Latinos." He called for the deportation of illegal aliens. Is the Biden team actually equating Latinos and illegal aliens? Wow, what a window into how they view Latinos and how insulting and race-baiting the Biden team is being here. Illegal aliens come from all over the world, but the Biden team seems not to understand that. That's a problem if they don't comprehend that basic fact.
The Biden team is now trying to convince the American people that they care about border security. But real border security is enforcing the law. Trump is talking about border security here, he's talking about deporting people who have entered the country illegally. That's the law. So why does the Biden team seem to have an issue with enforcing what's on the books? Of course, they've had an issue for three years enforcing the law, but this tweet only re-enforces their problematic approach. The American people, including Latinos, want the rules enforced, and that's why they are unhappy with Joe Biden for the failure.
Trump also doesn't say anything about camps in this clip, although there have been reports that he's thinking of sites near the border to assist in the deportation process. But if we are talking about camps, what are those things that the Biden team has for illegal aliens? Party tents? I don't think so. Why doesn't the Biden team talk about their camps for illegal aliens?
But perhaps their race-baiting and ignorance is not surprising, given the racism and ignorance that Joe Biden frequently displays.
The funny thing was that so many of the responses on X not only called out the deceitful claim about Latinos but also mocked the Biden team for basically advertising for Trump with the video. They said deportation of illegal aliens and enforcing the law was what they wanted -- someone who was going to take the problem seriously, unlike Joe Biden.
Trump pledges “the largest deportation operation in history.” Biden campaign staff translates this as “rounding up millions of Latinos,” because they apparently believe all Latinos are illegal and all illegals are Latino. It’s like Biden is trying to drive away Latino voters. https://t.co/yD9J8O1mkD— Stephen Miller (@StephenM) February 10, 2024
I forgot how "Latino" the Chinese nationals, Arabic, and African illegal migrants were.— U.S. Ministry of Truth (@USMiniTru) February 10, 2024
Rounding up millions of unvetted illegal immigrants from wherever they are. This Latina immigrant is eagerly waiting Trumps return so we can have a safer community and a closed border. What’s going on with the cartels on the border is criminal. #TRUMP2024ToSaveAmerica— YdaniaD (@YdaniaD) February 10, 2024
